An updated version of Microstation V8i, usually given with an academic license to Italian engineering students.
Bentley Microstation V8i (SELECTseries 3) - version 08.11.09.578
Installation OK (see workaround)
Create and open DGN file 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.
May stuck in IE8 installation via winetricks
