What works

Bentley Microstation V8i (SELECTseries 3) - version

Prerequesties OK

Installation OK (see workaround)

Create and open DGN file OK

Printing OK

Paint lines, create text strings OK

In fact every basic operations OK

What does not

Cannot install directly through application installer. It starts to unpacking files but with no result. See workaround


There is little workaround for application force to run and install.

Extract EXE file with installation to some place in Wine place. Then manually run Setup.exe.

Prerequesties end succesfully with maybe 2 errors - I made no extra installations.

After that Microstation wont run, but:

run: winetricks dotnet35 d3dx9 msxml6 vcrun2005 vb6run ie8 corefonts

Finally application starts without any issues (for now).

What was not tested

3D section and advanced operations.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments
