When starting MicroStation, error message appears stating, for example; "Exiting, C:\BentelyV8i_Workspace\Workspace\users\untitiled.ucf not found, [C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries)\MicroStation\config/msconfig.cfg], line 241"
The error message could contain any path, for example: "Exiting, "<path to file>" not found, [C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries)\MicroStation\config/msconfig.cfg], line 241"
See image of example error message below:
MicroStation needs a User Configuration File (ucf) in order to start. When this message appears, it cannot find the ucf file it is looking for in the path given in the error.
For more information on the user configuration file, see MicroStation Help > Contents tab > Setting Up Projects > Workspaces > Workspace Fundamentals
MicroStation needs access to the folder where the ucf file is stored. When browsing to open the folder in Windows Explorer, if access to the folder is restricted, a warning message will appear saying something like the following: "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Bentley\MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries)\WorkSpace\....is not accessible. Access is denied." See image below showing an example of this:
To try and resolve, have the IT department grant access to this location and try starting MicroStation once more.
