I am trying to create a new computer image for our company. We are currently on V8i SS3 - 184.108.40.206. The problem is with the new build and V8i - SS7 - 220.127.116.11, the Bentley Connection Client keeps popping up when logging into the machine not the software the machine, can this be turned off?
When it asks me to login . I tried my Bentley website login but it does not work. I don't want to have all our users to have to create a Bentley login just to get.
Please let me know thanks

The CONNECTION Client has settings to prevent it from starting (see CONNECTION Client Preferences) however some of the applications (in your case MicroStation) start the CONNECTION Client so those settings are overridden. The only version of MicroStation that I'm aware of that overrides the CONNECTION Client settings is MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 4).

This is completely unacceptable that you cannot turn this off. I don't need or want this to be running full time on my system, surely it's not to much to ask to have an option to turn off the app when you are not using it without resorting to registry hacks?
This is an old thread, but you can exit out of the CONNECTION Client when you are not running a Bentley application that uses Subscription Entitlement Service (SES) to activate your software.
Yea, well you need to get rid of Connection Client, as it is, completely. Go back to a static method of licensing. Even the old hardware lock was better than this bull stuff software. What if we're not interested in cloud based features?

I absolutely agree with you. Nobody looks through and I, as the sole user, have no time to log in or to control what this client is doing on my laptop. I work with customer data and this must not be sent to the third party. Who guarantees that Bentley will not have access to them? I have had the license since 1998 and pay something every year to stay without a license?In Germany, using the cloud without informing the customer is not compliant with the law!
This doesn't seem to be the case on the latest version. You can turn off auto sign in, you can turn off notifications, but you can't stop it starting up in the tray. Even if you remove it from the startup programs list, it still loads up in the background and then waits for you to sign in. Even if you choose to exit, it reappears in several minutes, even if you aren't using any Bentley product.
