Ever since i bought the new version of V8i, whenever i try to detach a reference file from a dgn file a message pops up that i cant detach it.
I can't find a proper solution to the issue of trying to detach without the window popping up saying I cannot detach.
I have read all the solution that are available, but none of them worked. I do not have geopak or inroads so i cannot open microstation with geopak/inroads to attempt the other solutions.
I'm positive there is another way to get this working without geopak/inroads. This software is pricey enough that I shouldn't run into these problems.
i have the 08.11.09.829 version of V8i.
i would really appreciate it if anyone could help me figure this out.
this may help explain what is happening:

yes, i have read that before. but i do not have geopak/inroads... my work is never related to those.
Someone who did have InRoads/Geopak has worked on those files, and the civil software has written some bit of data into them. Because of that data bit, plain MicroStation is no longer allowed to detach references (at all).I do not think there IS a way around this, except to open the civil software, detach the reference, and go back to plain MicroStation. I have not found any way to UN-Civil any file that has civil data written to it, either with MicroStation or InRoads. This causes me no end of trouble on certain projects...

As Mary pointed out some form of civil data was written to the attachment elements and the master file.
The only way to detach the reference is to detach them within one of the Civil Products.
we found a work around while waiting for the inroads user to fix it well not me my colleague didm create a new file ref attach the old file not nested select and copy all the elements from the ref file... now you have a single model file... detach ref ..
I think that was the process I'll recheck at work and consult my notes at work .. and get back to you... please get back to me if this didnt work for you...
