MDL aborts in Image manager when opening a design file.Product: MicroStation JVersion: 07.01.04.10
Image Manager loads on a design file basis and it depends on whether a type 66 element info 8672834 is present in the file. If it is present, Image Manager loads. The header information is written to the design file by a project file. If a project file was attached at some point to this dgn, it writes the header to the file. Even if the project file is detached at some point, the dgn still has the header and automatically loads Image Manager.
Removing the header resolves the issue.
To remove the header, open the file in EDG and execute the following commands:EdG> set search/type=66EdG> topkeep hitting enter until you reach (66) MS application info dataEdG> /fullif the element has an indent value of: 8672834EdG> modify status=deleteif not, keep hitting enter until the next one
