Installing Microstation XM
I told them some days ago that I got an album of Microstation XM, which includes Bentley Map and Bentley Cadastre; but in the intention of Renew life of my machine I reserved this time for when I returned from my travels.
The first impression is somewhat strange, for users of the previous versions, we knew that nothing else was needed to install. Because it is now a development in .NET there are prerequisites that when you request a Select CD they come inside. (oops! if they didn't come talk to a pretty girl from Bentley Spain call Blanca and she will find a way to put them in an ftp)
This should not be the procedure or at least there should be more information online, San Google will send you pre-requisites of other XM herbs.
E.g. Select Server XM requires
- MSXML 4.0 SP2 or higher
- Internet Information Servers IIS (with ASP.NET support)
- . NET Framework 1.1
And the first assumption of us mortals is that the same thing is used for Microstation XM ... well no.
What are the prerequisites for Microstation XM
These are the characteristics of the development environment and libraries necessary for the installation to work. ESRI and AutoDesk call it Service Pack, because Bentley to continue with its habit of looking like nobody calls it pre-requisites… okay!
What are the prerequisites?
That's where the mule made a Hugo Sánchez-style earwig with Genaro… because I couldn't find where to download them from, although I'm sure that the site must exist only that it's not indexed by Google. That is why they come with the disc, or are on the site where you download them; in this case, I am installing version 08.09.04.51.
The pre - requisites are:
This involves updating:
- Windows Installer Version 3.1v2
- Microsoft. NET Framework 2.0
- Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 64 bit
- Microsoft .NET Framework Language Pack
- Microsoft XML Parser (MSXML) 4.20
- Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications core
- Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications localized
- DirectX 9c.
- DHTML Editing Control for Applications
It seems very practical, because the system detects if there was problem to install a bookstore and obviate the unnecessary
This suggests that different versions occupy different prerequisite files. Finally I must admit that the Bentley service is better, at least via Skype ... although they must do what is necessary, remembering that self-taught people do not expect to use the support ... only Google.
Outside of this slight inconvenience, the installer works very well. For now, I am desperate to learn that much of what had been developed with XFM in .NET, when it was released in 2004 completely raw, almost comes integrated into Cadaster. I will try it and tell you.
thanks Tomas, I hadn't read it ... and I'll keep it in mind
Hi G! I left some questions about Microstation V8 and XM in the Cartesia forum. Maybe you can give an opinion on this:
I need this version of microstation, I have geopack xm but it asks me to have at least the version of microstation that you own, I think we could make a change, my mail is Jimyto2000@yahoo.es
