Recently we regularly run into the following problem:
We encounter a very slow start-up of the CONNECT Licensing applications MicroStation and Bentley View. Users have to wait for about 2 minutes !! before the message as shown above appears.What can be the cause of this?
Microstation CE ( up 11 )good morningthe same thing happens to me too
This has been resolved. Please see the following post: https://communities.bentley.com/products/licensing/f/licensing-and-activation-forum/175325/usage-alerting-service-is-unavailable

not resolved. We have clients still facing that issue.
Yeah not resolved. I had it this morning.
Thanks for the feedback. Another fix has been pushed. Please reboot your machine when you have a chance and let me know if this is resolved.
Worked for me just now 14:14 GMT but was intermittent before so will see next week how it goes.
Two years on and I still get the "Usage Alerting Service is Unavailable" message every time I start Microstation. I just acknowledge it and carry on. Also the latest Connection Client is a bit flaky. Sometimes in connects straightaway but other times I have to have two goes at entering my e-mail address and password as it does not connect at all the first time. No big deal really as I can get in eventually it is just a bit more aggro.
What is your environment like? Meaning, are you working remotely across a VPN or have some other type of configuration? Anything you may be able to provide could help as this should not be happening.
