Microstation V8i SS10

This was mentioned in another thread and seems to have been very quietly slipped out

  • Without knowing your V8i Installation setup, what I can tell you is that custom user settings & company standards are easily reinstated after an upgrade installation with next to no downtime at all. Typically your V8i Workspace folder will reside on a mapped network drive on a file server, this won't be modified in any way during installation of SS10. All those settings you mentioned are It's also common to have a custom shortcut with a command switch to tell MicroStation where your settings are stored (If you are unfamiliar with this, Open the V8i Help/Programmed Customizations/Command Line Arguments).

    As an example, if I were to uninstall V8i SS4 and install SS10, once the installation is complete, the only thing I will have to do is open the properties of my custom shortcut and verify that the folder path to Ustation.exe is the same as it was to SS4. If its not, I just change it to what it needs to now be. Then I load MicroStation with the custom shortcut, open a dgn file  and all my own user settings and company settings (not that I have any need for those currently!) are loaded and just as they were with SS4. The only loss of time is the time to uninstall SS4 and install SS10.
