I just updated to Windows 10 and MicroStation and Bentley Map are behaving quite strangely.
Before I continue I should tell you that my colleague also updated to Windows 10 and everything works fine.
What has happened in my case is that suddenly all MicroStation and Map icons have administrator badge attached even though I'm working on a user with administrator priviledges.
Another thing, and more annoying, is that when a design file is opened in MicroStation or Map all kinds of lines appear:
These seem to be some kind of "ghost" lines as they do not appear when printed and cannot be selected or worked with. It's like the can be seen but aren't there. When all levels are turned off the lines disappear.
Is there anyone who has had a similar problem or is there a known solution?
Hi Bjorn, First thing, Microstation SS3 isn't certified for Windows 10, that's why there is now SS4. Second thing (graphic issues). That problem keep showing up on forum. You're having legacy driver / graphic card results, as Microstation is trying to use directx 11 but the relation between windows/driver/microstation is faulty.1 - One way to do is buy new graphic card.
2 - Other way is test drivers (install/uninstall) until find one that it's ok.
3 - Third way (faster & simpler) is give windows environment to force Microstation work in Dx9 (unfortunately this way we don't take advantage of dx11 - faster view displays).

What make is the graphic card?

When you originally installed MicroStation, you probably had administrative rights. Does Windows 10 modify application icons to reflect the user rights at the time of creation? How about the icons on your colleague's computer?

The Windows 10 upgrade will upgrade your Graphics Drivers. For many NVidia cards this means you'll have to set QV_D3DVERSION=9 to get it to work again.
link (either as an environment variable or in the MicroStation configuration somewhere, user-level is fine).
You can try other options as suggested by Bentley, but I wouldn't even bother with those.
You won't be able to install an old driver to the new OS.
