Microstation - Need a copy...

George Jetson

Hey all,

Captain Alias here...looking for a free copy of Microstation (V7 or V8) for personal use on my home computer. I've looked around on line but haven't found anything suitable. If someone has a copy that they can make available it would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to post here with info or email me.

so George ... why is it that I have the feeling you'd be the first one to complain bitterly if somebody knocked off one of your designs without providing you any compensation ... yet, you think it ok to steal Bentley's intellectual property ?

digger, 2 things.

first, not sure how you arrive at your appraisal: "why is it that I have the feeling you'd be the first one to complain bitterly if..."
do we know eachother?

second, your analogy doesn't make sense. intellectual property has nothing to do with this. i don't want to take bentley's code and use it to write my own version of CAD software. if that were the case, your analogy would make sense.

that is not the case. i want free software for personal use. illegal, yes, but i won't lose any sleep over it. now that you mention it, i need this software to aid in the completion of 2 pro-bono projects i'm doing in my spare time. so ya, this isn't weighing heavily on my conscience. i won't be making money from the free software. that is an entirely different ethical situation.

got to admire George's attention to this thread- he has almost every other post

George, screw what these people say! If I had a copy of microstation, I'd get it to you in a second. But unfortunately I don't have it. However, my office does you microstation.

get those pro bono projects to buy it and write it off as a tax return?

You know, you can buy an older copy that someone isn't using anymore:

Fuck you Autodesk, up yours WE WIN!

thanks Andrew, i'm donwloading it now...hope it works.

I can't download it. The torrent download option just sends me to a screen filled with computer code. Does that happen to anyone else?

click the "how to download" link. you have to first download this thing called uTorrent. once you have that it should work.

V8 is 290mb, so it may take a few hours to download, depending on connection speed.

Thank you. Downloading now.

Not to be a spoilsport, but this thread is probably enough for a DMCA takedown notice. George Jetson - way to endanger all of ours procrastination.

the capitalists who seek property as violence have spoken ;)
