CONNECT Advisor is annoying. I don't know what it does, but it persists in loading itself automatically. I've told it not to do that...
The CONNECT Advisor is a central tool we have provided with our CONNECT products as a central location to access Learn content, Community updates, Youtube videos and other information to assist you with the operation of the software you are currently using. The Contextual option can be quite helpful in locating various content specifically related to the tool you may select. It also contains a section to get assistance from an Expert Advisor.
Unselecting this option as well as the "Use last session settings" should stop the CONNECT Advisor from opening when you startup MicroStation but many be related to your permissions to save these settings on your local drive or in the registry. It might be worth trying to "Restore default settings" and trying this again.

The wiki article you linked to says to leave comments at the bottom, but there is no comment box. Also, the link at the bottom of the left hand navigation, the big green box that says:
...takes me to some unrelated page.
The LEARN server only works about 10% of the time we try to load a learning path. I wanted to load CONNECT Advisor to see if it can get us the training matieral any more reliably, but it does not appear to be supported by Power GEOPAK SS10.
Quality control and customer experience at Bentley is a joke. If we weren't locked into being customers by fiat of the state DOT, we would've left a long time ago.
Please forward my comments to whomever needs to hear it.
Have a good day,
