MicroStation Crashes when attaching ECW in Win7 x64
V8 2004 is not certified to run under Win 7 x64 OS but several usersreported it working well. In some configurations Microstation crasheswhen attaching an ECW rasters. The attaching operation takes a very longtime and eventually results in a crash.
One of these workarounds could allow Microstation to work under this OS,even if the configuration is not certified.1. Download and install Windows XP mode for Windows 7. This is currentlyavailable for Windows 7 Prof and Ultimate, so please check which editionthe user is running before advising to install it.2. Use GeoTiff instead of ECW if possible. This has been testedsuccessfully in configurations where the ECW caused the crash.
