• New to MicroStation Connect RegestryRead

    For many years FDOT has set System Variables to define paths for MictoStation Variables. This seems to be no linger necessary when using OpenRoads Connect Edition. Using the registry to set MicroStation Configuration Variables has been made simple, I would like to define the variable _USTN_ORGANIZATION as the installed location on the FDOT Server software location. The first thing to do is look in the workstation registry…

The distance between…

    As part of the modifications…
