Any way to download Bentley View Select v8.1? I cannot for the life of me get the new "Connect" version to install, let alone run. I have Select installed at work, but need to do some work from home today and thought I could simply download Bentley View. It's been an utter nightmare trying to get even the installer to try to run. At first nothing at all would happen when running the installer. Running as admin in started to download files then errored out. I don't know what changed, but if it doesn't work, it would be useful to be able to install the previous version that DID WORK!!

What version of Windows are you using at home? What version of Windows are you using at work?

Windows 7 Pro at work. Windows 10 Pro at home.
Previous versions of Bentley View are no longer available to download. Support for pre CONNECT versions of Bentley software is expiring.
We would need further details to assist with you getting Bentley View CONNECT Edition installed on your home Windows 10 system. Maybe you could start with what sort of errors occurred during the installation? Possibly a screen capture showing the installation screen. It would also be helpful if you could supply the installation logs.

Same problem here, The AutoCAD freeviewer is installed & up & running in around 3 minutes.
Bentley insists on installing something called connection client, and never gets around to installing the viewer. I gave up after 45 mins with the install still running & just cancelled it.
Is there any way to just install the simple viewer without all the extra unwanted stuff??
is there any way to get Bentely view 8?
New connection viewer does not work, it only says "no entilement" and quits after startup?
