2)     You are connecting that pre-XM application to a gateway directed to the Bentley HOSTED server          (

3)      The connecting Gateway is a version number of 08.09.xx.xx or prior.


If all of the prior conditions are met the resolution to this issue is to upgrade the SELECTserver gateway to the current release from the Bentley Download site. The current release version is You will need to do the following.


1)     Check the prerequisites to ensure the node will support the “new SELECTServer Gateway installation.

If the .NET framework 4.0 is not installed on your node you will need to do so. A simple Google search will get you there. The following link will get you in the ballpark. ***
