I am currently running microstation 08.11.09.832 ss4 I am also running Inroads 08.11.07.615 mandated by our local DOT,
I have down loaded and installed Inroads 08.11.09.878 ss4,, try to open it , crashes out
of course i googled this first and see I need some sort or switch or double Load Inroad ss1 and ss4 config?
tried with no luck
I need some step by step help on this

They need separate workspaces and separate user preference files. That I know for sure. You can run them on the same machine, but they "want" separate resources.
I'm sorry I can't be too much more specific than that. I was involved in some of the troubleshooting here, but not the final solution.

Life will be lots easier if you switch over to power inroads instead of suite. Power products have identical functionality and covered under same license. Since ss2 and ss4 power products each have their own self contained microstation no need to fiddle with command line switches. If you want to stay with suite though you need to add a command switch to the icon. I think it is -loadss2 but check the help file.
as for maintaining two separate workspaces, not necessary. I run both ss2 and ss4 using the identical workspace and user prefs. Ss4 uses some extra files which are ignored by ss2 of course.

we cant switch to power products
i am running ss4 microstation, using a DOT workspace, i load it VIA a MDL and or calling up from ICON still crashes regardless , tried to open it with the default workspace still crashed.
Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries)\MicroStation\config\appl and make sure you DON'T have a file which calls up the InRoads SS2 Command Line Switch. Way back when SS2 was first released, we could add it to a configuration file or have the switch on the icon, but with subsequent releases of InRoads, we have different switches and can't have it in a CFG. Look for a file called "Load_InRoads.cfg". If you have one and open it you will probably see the switch Load_InRoads_SS2=1 which is trying to get MicroStation to recognize the ss2 product, but InRoads ss4 can't load this way. You will want to delete that file if you have it.
The next thing is to make sure there is an InRoads.3.1.cfg along with the InRoadsAT.cfg. They can both exist here, we just need to make sure you have both because these control the startup of InRoads.
Next I would look at the icons used to start up the program. InRoads SS4 icon requires 2 switches. -wsLoad_InRoads_SS4=1 -wsINROADS_APP=Suite because it has to load on startup. InRoads SS4 no longer has the ability to start from within a MicroStation session and must be started when you start the program because of the functionality placed in the MicroStation Tasks for the OpenRoads tools.
