Installation Steps for V8i:
Please refer How to download the Bentley Substation software for detailed steps on downloading the Setup fro Bentley Substation. Note: The below steps assume that you already have the necessary setup
1. To Install Substation, double click on subs081113140en.exe
2. The Bentley Substation V8i Installer dialog will open.In this dialog one can choose from either of the two options. ‘Extract and install installation package’ or ‘Extract installation package only’.

Extract installation package only – This option will only extract all the necessary files.
Note: By default, for all the Bentley V8i software, the extraction of all the necessary files will be in a folder with the software name and version number in the C:\BentleyDownloads folder. Hence in this case the folder name would be Substation_08.11.13.140
