Will I still be able to use my Bentley application if no support is offered?

Yes. Support status does not affect licensing status.

I am using a Bentley application that is not commercially released on my operating system. Can I get support?

Support is not provided for Bentley applications that are not commercially released. However, if the issue is not related to the operating system, support will be available.
