MicroStation Connect Update 13
I am trying to control the version of the .imodel version being published with a script to 1.6 and not 2.0. It looks like the settings file I created and that is loaded is not supporting the imodel version output setting. Anyone have any ideas or solution for this issue before I file a ticket?

What happens if you execute key-in PUBLISHDGN CREATEDGNDBIMODEL?

it publishes to the latest version, 2.0. No way to control the version setting via keyin or settings file, at least nothing in the settings file that represents that the version is set to a certain version. So far I am unable to control the dialog through vba either.
do you have more information on how the nomenclature of logging into a ProjectWise Datasource and pulling/pushing the data should be? The documentation you are referring to provides no examples and I am unable to get past this roadblock. I can generate the DBimodel with no issue when outside of the ProjectWise environment.
I need to know:
An example provided with this tool in the documentation would be a huge plus for both in and out of the ProjectWise environment.
I have placed a ticket on this Friday, Oct 18th but no response at this time.
If you want to publish the .imodel from an i.dgn in MicroStation CONNECT in ProjectWise, open key-in dialog and execute key-in publishdgn createdgndbimodel <path of .imodel> <path of .i.dgn>, please use quotes to overcome any spaces. I have also asked development for achieving similar directly from the ITG console.
Hi Mark, i am still waiting for more updates from Dev team, but have you tried the key-in publishdgn createdgndbimodel <path of .imodel> <path of .i.dgn> in ProjectWise. If you don't need the .imodel 2.0 format you can temporarily uninstall it and then this key-in will generate the 1.6 format .imodel by default. Also have you tried the Bentley Automation Services with MSTN CONNECT? It will publish all the DGN files on PW to an i.dgn or .imodel 1.6.
If the DGN or i-model path has spaces use quotes. Sample command for non PW session is here:
I appreciate your feedback but you have already stated that this can be done with no issues. I am requesting a solution for the application to access ProjectWise. So far, between the SR I filed and this forum, I still do not have a solution. I am starting to question if Bentley even knows how or if this can be done even though it was stated in the documentation. My apologies if I sound negative but I am frustrated and have started looking for an alternate solution.
