Issue: MicroStation and products built with MicroStation technology (e.g. AECOsim Building Designer, Bentley Map, Bentley View, etc.) freeze at the splash screen. Description: This impacts Bentley products built using MicroStation V8i SELECTseries 2 or higher. On some computers, these products could hang at the splash screen. Although we have not narrowed this to any specific computer configurations and the exact cause is unknown, initial investigation points to a non-Bentley operating system update that became available on January 15th. Further investigation is ongoing and updates will be posted here as information becomes available.Solution: Suggested possible workarounds found to date include:
When having this issue with MicroStation hanging at the Splash Screen and not opening. Make sure the system config files are being read correctly or any custom configs you maybe loading as well. Make sure the configs are not corrupt. Then see if MicroStation will prompt you to activate your license at this point. Hope this helps.
