The AASHTOWare Bridge Task Force is pleased to announce the release of AASHTOWare Bridge Management 5.2.1 SP2. This version is a comprehensive service pack release, including all updates and revisions from previous full releases and service packs. It is a separate, full-installation package that will replace any previous version that you may have installed.
5.2.1 SP2 fully incorporates the FHWA Bridge Element validation checks and file submittal for the April 2015 submission, and has been extensively tested against the FHWA validation checking website. SP2 also includes an upgrade to Crystal Reports 2013, and AASHTO will provide a single Crystal Reports license key free for a licensed agency to use. If you would like to receive your agency’s license key, please email Bentley at BrM@bentley.com.
The enterprise version of SP2 has been upgraded to be 64 bit compatible, which will provide some minor speed improvements, but most noticeably an increased level of stability for agencies that have a significant number of concurrent users in BrM. There is a 32 bit version of SP2 Enterprise that is available upon agency request, however we would encourage all agencies to use the 64 bit version whenever possible. The workstation version of SP2 is still installed as a 32 bit application, however all functionality is mirrored between the enterprise and workstation versions.
All active licensees can download the software electronically from our secure FTP site or request a DVD be mailed out to them. Please contact us at BrM@bentley.com to request the electronic download or DVD.
The following are the highlights of the new features of AASHTOWare Bridge Management 5.2.1 SP2:
