Good Day !!
I installed Bentley Viewer which is free app to view files dwg type files.
Previously there was no such strict requirement for using this free app, now every day it ask for to sign-in into connection client, which quite disturbing to see connection client message each day .. How to overcome this problem ?
Looking forward for your valuable comments .
Hi Muzaffar,Bentley View CONNECT is a free application, but it is required to sign-in into Connection Client. It is a program that utilizes CONNECT Licensing system instead of SELECTserver. You can find more information on CONNECT Licensing in the following article:https://communities.bentley.com/products/licensing/w/licensing__wiki/37813/connect-licensingYou can enable automatic sign-in and enable option to minimize client after in Connection Client Preferences, so that it wouldn't pop-up everyday.Best Regards,Robert Karpic
These all i know, but it is now a headache every day it appear after restart of a machine or when we turn on the machine. Users are fed up of these popups, i even installed the very old version i found in my directory but still it appears .. Is there any alternate way to this ?
Thanks & Regards,

No, Bentley View CONNECT requires users to sign into CONNECTION Client to obtain the free license for this product. User will be required to sign in at least once. Afterwards, CONNECTION Client will attempt to automatically sign a user in whenever possible.
As connection client works on the basis of internet, what if someone don't have internet at the premises and he want to view the files through bentley viewer, what he will do ? Any solution to this problem please ?
If you sign into CONNECTION Client at least once (with internet connection) you can use it for 7 days without internet connection. You can see the following wiki about it:https://communities.bentley.com/products/licensing/w/licensing__wiki/40445/offline-usage
