So far we were installing the free Bentley View 08.11.09.459 (vw081109459en SS3) I'm trying to create a new corporate PC image, with the new View 08.11.09.829 (vw081109829en SS4). The new version has a limited 'free use' (only 7 days) and demands a registration via the login of the Connection Client.
This is a tool for blue-collar workers, or administrative people from all over the company, to be able to see our CAD files . They don't need cloud-connection or co-operation or file sharing. Some don't even have an internet connection.It should just be a viewer of .DGN-files, and nothing more.
How can I configure Bentley View (with or without the Connection Client) to be able to run for more than 7 days, without having to supply or create a login for every separate user? I need a silent login by default, or no login at all.
As a sideline: I have always been an advocate of using Bentley software all over the company, but if they insist on feeding us functionality we don't need - we will never go into a cloud-based environment - without the possibility of turning it off, I'm afraid that my management is going to turn away from Bentley because it's too much trouble.

Others have expressed reservations about the CONNECT client. Here's one way to stop that dialog popping (but this is for MicroStation CONNECT, and I don't know if it also works with View V8i).

I don't have MicroStation V8i SS4. I have MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 2. Like all installs of MicroStation CONNECT, the Bentley CONNECT dialog pops every time I log-in. At that time, of course, MicroStation is not even running.
