A Debug file can be very useful in investigating configuration issues as it contains all the variables contained in all the configuration files processed by MicroStation. To see a listing of MicroStations Configuration generate a debug file from a modified shortcut.
Also in CONNECT Edition look at the options in the Configuration Variables dialog File menu, Show Configuration Values and Print Variable information.
Press: Windows key + R
In the Run dialog type (or paste):
"C:\Program Files\Bentley\MicroStation CONNECT Edition\MicroStation\microstation.exe" -debug
The file will be saved to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\Bentley\MicroStation\10.0.0\msdebug.txt and will open in Notepad (the application associated with the .txt file extension):
