I recently purchased a perpetual license for Bentley Powerdraft V8i and decided to install the CONNECT version too. When opening the product I was greeted with a 7 day trial dialogue. I contacted the seller and they advised looking at this:-
This article describes how to activate products under a CONNECT license. I found the Bentley licensing tool and it shows the Powerdraft license type as being 'trial', when clearly this should be otherwise. It appears that you can't alter the license type manually either. could someone please advise why the license type is showing 'Trial' when it should show something like 'commercial'?
You would need to check with your account administrator whether he has assigned the Powerdraft entitlement to you. https://communities.bentley.com/products/licensing/w/licensing__wiki/38028/2---entitlement-management-configuration
