I am trying to create a new computer image for our company. We are currently on V8i SS3 - 18.104.22.168. The problem is with the new build and V8i - SS7 - 22.214.171.124, 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).

There are some links between the CONNECTION Client and the License Client, so they check to see if each are running and restart if one isn't. If you don't want the CONNECTION Client to run, you will need to go into the Task Manager and end the License Client process. This does work as I have just done it. The CC has functioned like this for several versions. I am talking to the team here to look into some ways that we can honor the CC request to end while addressing some sync issues between both processes. Thanks.
Please understand my criticism as an attempt to make Bentley products better for the user. In Germany this CC is the problem to use Microstation Connect more. It is an exotic CAD program anyway and with CC it is not really sexy for new interested parties
I appreciate any feedback I can get from users so thanks for posting this. I hope to have more information on your suggestion by the end of the week.
If there are other things that could help with adoption of MicroStation please let me know, I'd be happy to discuss it with you.
I wanted to follow back up with you in regards to the CONNECTION Client. I've spoken to the team and we are going to make a couple changes to reduce the CC popping up and well as a configuration option for those user who may not need to use a Bentley application frequently. Thanks
Thanks for looking into this, really appreciated.
