FYI, It appears that Microstation CE Update 15.0 still works on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, but Microstation CE Update 15.2 and Update 16 do not work on Windows 7.
If you just run the 2MB installer program that is downloaded from the Bentley website, after quite a while, you will get a message that you need a newer version of Windows.
With Mstn CE U16, if you create a deployment package, it appears to install o.k. When I opened Microstation the first time, it crashed before it even asked me what file to open.
If you check the readme, you will see that MicroStation 15.2 and 16 are not certified for Windows 7
I liked Windows 7, better than 10, wanted to keep it. But I upgraded when I built my last box, processor wanted Windows 10. Believe it's under $200, peanuts compared to Bentley fees. But if you're inconvenienced by this you should at least try it, it may be fine. It may be O.K. to just run r13, they really haven't fixed much (of course one bug can be a show stopper)..

The first Win10 version was not good for users, but today Windows 10 is very different system and technically (kernel enhancements, performance, resources management) is years ahead. Returning back to Windows 7, when I am asked for help with e.g. reinstallation or maintenance, is painful.

I know you are negative about CONNECT Edition and it's true it's still buggy, but especially from U13, every next version has been a substantial step in performance and number of fixed bugs (and, unfortunately, sometimes also old bugs re-introduction). And first impression from U16 is also good.
