Connect to browser doesn't work I get this message "error connecting to external browser. Restart Engineering Links".
How to actually restart the e-links?
Found out that Microstation has to be run in administrator mode for this to work but now executing "mdl load webbrows" in key-in Microstation crashes instantly. This feature didn't work correctly in v8i either but now it is even worse.
Hi Oto :
Please share the crash logs. How to quickly find and collect Exception logs and Minidump files
I tried “mdl load webbrows” and “mdl load webbrows google.com” in MicroStation Connect Update 9 and it works."Connect to Browser" also works.
MicroStation Connect Update 9 started in normal mode.
Could be something to do with your access rights.
I was able to replicate the issue with Chrome and Edge.
No issues if I set the default browser to IE.
I would recommend filing a service request as defect 889585 has been created to track this issue.
How to change default browser to IEXPLORE?MS_USEEXTERNALBROWSER variable doesn't seem to change it.
Set to Netscape or IExplore in order to use an external browser. (MS_USEEXTERNALBROWSER)Does it also need to set path to browser(MS_BROWSERPATH)?
I get the same error.
where do I go to change the browser?
Has a resolution to this issue been addressed and when it would be resolved? I am running MicroStation CE U14 and the issue has not been resolved. Currently looking for a work around via VBA and a shell call probably.
Thanx. Mark W.
Looking at the background of this issue it appears Defect 889585 was raised for this which has been approved for a fix in a future release. At the moment there is a target release of update 16. You might like to raise a Service Request to be linked to this. It also seems like this was related to using browsers other that MSIE as the default.
