How to generate Dependency Walker log files


Dependency Walker is a very useful tool for troubleshooting system errors related to loading and executing modules. Dependency Walker detects many common application problems such as missing modules, invalid modules, import/export mismatches, circular dependency errors, mismatched machine types of modules, and module initialization failures.

Steps to Accomplish

•  Go to

•  Download 32bit or 64bit depending on the version of MicroStation that you plan to troubleshoot.
   For V8i, download 32bit version - “DownloadVersion 2.2.6000 for x86”
   For Connect, download 64bit version - “DownloadVersion 2.2.6000 for x64“

•  Extract “” to a folder

•  Start depends.exe

•  Select the file to test (File > Open)
   e.g.  C:\Program Files\Bentley\MicroStation CONNECT Edition\MicroStation\MdlSys\Asneeded\Vue\Application\StandaloneDLL.eon
         C:\Program Files\Bentley\MicroStation CONNECT Edition\MicroStation\MicroStation.exe
         C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries)\MicroStation\ustation.exe
         Note: This activity will take a long time.

•  Once the activity is complete, go to File > Save As and save the log file as StandaloneDLL.dwi (DWI – Dependency Walker Image)
