I am trying to create a new computer image for our company. We are currently on V8i SS3 - 220.127.116.11. The problem is with the new build and V8i - SS7 - 18.104.22.168, 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
This is an old thread, but I was wondering how to do this as I only use Bentley products intermittently. I was able to delete the registry key like suggested in this thread, but everytime I closed Connection Client, it would pop right back, turns out you have to go to Task Manager and End Task for both the Bentley processes (Connect.Client and Licensing.Service). Then it stops popping back up. I haven't been able to test if it loads on startup yet, but I've disabled it in the registry as per this thread as well as in Task Manager > Startup tab.
You're stuck with the rest of us. Bentley's assumption is that you either never use their products, or your a full time user. With that assumption, it really puts the occasional user (or the occasional computer) at a disadvantage. Every work-around that I have found has its draw-backs and and can get reset back to the default behavior fairly easily (without your consent).
You will probably get no where, but you could file a Service Request and then ask them to file a Enhancement Request regarding this.
I think i solved or better said found a work around for this issue finally!
What i did was this:
Create an Active Directory group G-AP-Bentley
On your image or machine, simply go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Bentley Shared
Rightclick on the Connection Client folder, go to advanced security and remove inheritance... then convert them to non inheritanced rights... add the G-AP-Bentley group and give them Read and Execute rights... remove the users group from the rights so no others than admins and the G-AP-Bentley group have access to this folder.
Then inside the folder there is a Bentley.Connect.Client.exe.config file, edit that and change this value to prevent popup all the time:
<add key="PopupIntervalMinutes" value="1440" />
When im not in the active directory group G-AP-Bentley nothing pops up anymore... if i add mij account to the group, it will popup again.
