[1.0.106] Error: No iModel bridges were found


as a part of learning ProjectWise 365 and iTwins ecosystem, I am trying to create iModel using iTwin Synchronizer,

Everything seems to be fine (project is created, empty i-model is created, everything is recognized by installed synchronizer), but regardless I try to add .dgn or .dwg, I always end with:

But the bridges for .dgn (MicroStation) and .dwg (civil / civil 3d) are installed already:

I ensured I have all necessary privileges: Because I am BDN member (I played with iModelJS source code already ;-) and I have all roles assigned both at general and project level, I assume this part should be fine.

Attached are iTwin Synchronizer log files. Windows 10 with all updates and patches installed, Czech GUI and local used.

BTW From log files, it seems Squirel tries to access MS Team. Why?

With regards,

  • If it relies on Microsoft libraries

    I think only partially: iTwinSynchronizer has been written from scratch (it's the part where the exception is reported), but I am not sure what technology is used (maybe something Chromium based?).

    IModelBridges are based on MicroStation technology, because they have to read and interpret source DGN data in the same way as MicroStation (or any discipline product like ORD) does.

    Still not found how to handle local characters in VBA for example if Windows locale is set to English.

    I am not aware of any such problem, maybe MicroStation Programming forum is better place where to discuss it. But it's true that VBA is old and obsolete technology, designed before Unicode and standardized national specific handling mechanism were standardized and implemented into core technologies.
