Running Inroads SS2 and SS4 on same machine

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 

thanks

  • 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.
