OK, so half the parametric doors in my drawing just disappears... again. Will I never learn? Never believe what a developer says in the Marketing BS.
I've used every Major rev of MicroStation ever released and have Beta tested starting with V4. This has too be the most unstable product (10X) that I've had the extreme miss fortune of using. Who ever is responsible for releasing this as a usable product should be fired. They either have no pride on no clue about quality. Its truly sad to see a company that once led in performance, stability and features decline to such a level.

Frankly, how the release date of Windows XP is related how long Bentley developed 64bit MicroStation? Do you really think Bentley (and any other company) started migration to 64bit platform when Windows XP 64bit, one from the worst piece of the software released by MicroStation, become available? Until Windows 7 there were not even too many users of 64bit Windows at all.
Taking into account all technical conditions, which I can evaluate better then business ones, like stability of platform and API including drivers, availability of good compiler (both C++ and C#) with features required to link together all used modules and technologies (like Parasolid core, DirectX subsystem etc.), I guess it took few years, but not 14 for sure.
And many companies, even the big one with plenty of users, still have not released 64bit versions of their products (like ESRI with ArcGIS for Desktop). I guess simply because it's pretty costly and complicated path.

I don't deny that there are some complex issues that are bound to arise only in real world... but... the default browser for Windows 10 is EDGE which Help doesn't work on. (Defect 7000402018) and was reported during the EAP. Seriously how hard can it be to see if Help works on a default install of a "certified" platform?
There were plenty of other known issues as well and the defects I've uncovered have surfaced doing first attempts at some very simple tasks.
Bentley has a lot of resources at their disposal. This product is simply showing where their priorities are.
