This Technote provides steps to take when first utilizing Bentley Products while they are unlicensed and in Trial Mode (Evaluation Mode).

Also, Bentley "Trial Versions" are fully functional pieces of software that will run for a period of time without a valid License. For Further Details on Trial Mode vs. Evaluation Mode Click Here.
Once you have downloaded and installed the software, launch the application. You may be put straight into the “Product Activation Wizard,” If the Product Activation Wizard does not prompt upon launching the application, you can activate using the License Mangement Tool.
