When I select the InRoads icon to load the product, MicroStation loads as expected but the InRoads program never opens. The splashscreen doesn't appear, and the InRoads explorer is never opened.
This can happen when certain products (i.e. CloudWorx, iPlot, etc.) are installed on the machine, which somehow prevents other applications from loading through the MDL Applications. We can define a variable value for the MS_DGNAPPS to force MicroStation to keep loading apps and not stop before it can load the InRoads app. To edit this variable, you will need access to edit the MS_DGNAPPS variable:
Go in MicroStation to Workspace > Configuration and edit the MS_DGNAPPS config. Set the mode to prepend, and add the following variable:
Save the Configuration, close MicroStation and reload InRoads to see if it will load after MicroStation is loaded. It should automatically bring up that InRoads splashscreen and then load the application.
