Open Cities Map (Connect)
Once a user (logged in to their Connection Client) activates OCM, which software files (exe's, cfg's, workspaces etc) are accessed and opened?
What is the sequence?
Does anyone have any documentation/diagrams?
I would like to understand the interaction between OCM and Microstation Connect software files,
so that configuration variable pointers can set up correctly in the appropriate cfg file (or other) on a network environment.

You can use the -debug switch to write a text file of all the configuration files that are loaded.
Add the -debug switch at the end of the Target field in a desktop shortcut
Launching the application with this switch will generate an msdebug.txt text file
It lists each .cfg file loaded in order, and all of the variable definitions within the cfg file.
This works for MicroStation, OpenCities Map, and every other "MicroStation based" application.

Bentley Configuration Explorer will also give you significant insight, just be aware that it has not been updated for a long time (sorry...) so if in doubt check variable values against those displayed in the Configuration Variables dialog.
For quick access to the Configuration Variables dialog try Using It! - Add Frequent Tools or Places to the Quick Access Toolbar
Thank you for your answers, very helpful and much appreciated.
I will use the -debug switch and the Bentley Configuration Explorer methods to investigate and resolve the configuration variables pointers/cfg files matter.
Please let us know how you get on.
