The forum is the best place to ask questions about Bentley View:
Try disabling popup blockers or try a different browser such as Chrome.
Why can't i download the Bentley View V8i? Its giving me an "Internet Explorer cannot be displayed error" after the initial Bentley View V8i Download prompt, even though i have good internet connection.
Thanks for pointing that out - it has now been removed. The legacy "knowledgebase" has been deprecated as most of the content has been migrated to Support Solution articles here in Communities.
The hyperlink "Bentley Technical Support KnowledgeBase" under "External Links" seems to be broken. When I click on it I get a message that says "This page can't be displayed".
