Did you actually read the original post?
Hello again Joerg,
MicroStation CONNECT Edition is licensed through Connection Client and requires a network connection:
Subscription Entitlement Service however provides the capability to reserve or check out licenses. Computers with Internet access can reserve a license from the Bentley Licensing Tool. For computers without Internet access, license files can be generated from the Entitlement Management website by an administrator from an Internet-connected computer.: https://communities.bentley.com/products/licensing/w/licensing__wiki/41085/how-to-check-out-licenses-from-entitlement-management
Hello Anu,is this wiki posting outdated?https://communities.bentley.com/products/licensing/w/licensing__wiki/40445/offline-usageIf so, then why is my Bentley Licensing Tool reporting "Allowed Offline" : Yes? (... while my computer is connected to the network)
That's pretty inflexible...So you're saying that I couldn't take my laptop to the park, or to the job site? That I couldn't take my laptop home with me to do some work in the evenings?
You're saying that CONNECT will have to connected to the internet 100% of the time to be usable?That kind of defeats the purpose of having a laptop at all.
Yes, I saw that the "administrator" can generate a license file...Can they do that once per machine ever, or do they need to do that every time the computer is to be disconnected from the internet? (IT is going to love that...)
This is a step backward from previous licensing.
