After installing MicroStation, when starting the software, a warning message appears; "Warning: minor version mismatch." followed by some more various text.
Sometimes, MicroStation can be accessed and other times it cannot be accessed. Seems to be a sporadic issue.

Warning: minor version mismatch. Program-(xx.xx.xx.xxx). Resource File-(xx.xx.xx.xx)

C:\Program Files\Bentley\MicroStation CONNECT Edition\MicroStation\ustation.rsc


It is possible some system files (.dll, .rsc, etc.) are not up to date with the current MicroStation version. This is most likely caused by a corrupted installation or update of MicroStation.
To resolve, try repairing the install of MicroStation first by following these steps:

  1. Open the Control Panel
  2. Go to Programs and Features
  3. Select the MicroStation application
  4. Click on the 'Modify' button for CONNECT and the 'Repair' button for V8i

If repairing/modifying the installation does not work, then try a clean uninstall/reinstall of MicroStation:

1. Uninstall MicroStation
2. Then delete the entire MicroStation CONNECT Edition folder located here:
C:\Program Files\Bentley\MicroStation CONNECT Edition
3. Reboot the machine
4. Then reinstall MicroStation and see if the issue persists
