V8i SELECTSeries 10 Support Policy Deprecation and CONNECT Edition Upgrade Initiative


 All V8i SELECTseries





Dear valued V8i SELECTseries 10 users: 

Bentley will begin discontinuing support for these applications as of January 1, 2022. As a result, you will lose the ability to file a service request for this specific version of the application via Service Request Manager. However, please note that your software will still run/activate, even in a discontinued support state. We strongly encourage you to upgrade to the most advanced CONNECT Edition solution by December 31, 2021. Doing so will ensure you have all the latest security for your projects and data while enhancing your workflows and making them more efficient.  

We are excited about the increased opportunities CONNECT Edition software will bring to your business, including helping you to improve the productivity of your infrastructure and design teams. You can read our full statement on this upgrade initiative below and CEO Greg Bentley’s explanation here.
