Wrong values exported to i-model with certain Windows Regional Settings

Product(s): SewerGEMS, SewerCAD, StormCAD, CivilStorm, WaterGEMS, WaterCAD, HAMMER
Version(s): & (Storm/Sewer products)
Area: Output and Reporting


When exporting to i-model, numbers such as elevations, flow, etc in the resulting i-model are not correct. For example a very large, unexpected value is seen for elevations as seen in Bentley Navigator or Bentley View.


This may be due to the Windows Regional and language options. Go to the Windows Control Panel > Region > Additional Settings. If they are not already set this way, change the Decimal Separator to a period '.' and the digit grouping symbol to a comma ','. Click Apply > OK. Next, restart the OpenFlows product and re-export to i-model.

The particular problem has been reported as reference number 781126 and will be addressed in a future release of the i-model publishing engine. This has been known to occur in version of the i-model publishing engine. You can check your i-model publishing engine version in the Windows "Add/Remove programs" or "Programs and Features". When available, please upgrade your i-model publishing engine version. The latest version can be found as a prerequisite to the OpenFlows product in question on the Fulfillment Center (download site).
