At what point does license usage of the OpenFlows product start recording when using a OpenFlows product integrated with MicroStation?


In the MicroStation CONNECT Edition integrated versions, OpenFlows product license usage will start when opening a project while using the OpenFlows workspace and the OpenFlows product WorkSet.

For the MicroStation V8i integrated version, this occurs when clicking "Open" in MicroStation's File Open dialog while a user and/or project is set to the OpenFlows product ("WaterGEMS" in the example below). The OpenFlows product is selected as the user/project when you launch the shortcut "<OpenFlows product name> for MicroStation"

Note that when working in the "...for MicroStation" platform, license usage of both the OpenFlows product and MicroStation itself will be recorded.


Note: If you have included OpenFlows product information from the config files into a custom workspace, the OpenFlows product license will apply as well.
