Is it possible to open a Workspace in Bentley Expert Designer from the Command Prompt?

I'd like know if it's possible to open a design without having to use the Bentley Expert Designer Communications user interface? I work for a telecommunications company where I check upwards of 80 designs on a daily basis and doing this from the user interface, although it's easy, it's not the most efficient way of getting to those designs quickly. I already looked under the help and could not find any information about using command line switches in Expert Designer.

I'm using Bentley Expert Designer Communications V8i(SELECT series 4)

Thanks.

  • Hi Jacobo.

    I think this is possible, but you would need to know the filename, workspace name, workspace directory, and other parameters (for example to integrate with ProjectWise) which can vary from file to file. Expert Designer Comms hides all of that information and can display designs in the same list from different workflows, so designs may not necessarily open using the same workspace.

    I think this question is more appropriate to the OpenComms forum, so I will move it there.

    Thanks,
