Why Connect Advisor with Bentley View?

Hi,

Why is Connect Advisor being installed with Bentley View?  How much advising can be done for a read-only viewer?

Also, why does installing Bentley View Connect affect the installation of Microstation V8i SS3?  There is no reason why installing the new View should install the Connection Advisor into Mcrostation V8i, especially without giving the user an option.

--Thanks,
--Robert

  • CONNECT Advisor is a helper application, which when installed integrates itself with supported V8i Applications and CONNECT Edition products together.

    there is a single CONNECT Advisor that serves both the generations (v8i and CONNECT Edition) of Bentley Applications.

  • Hi Nazeer,

    Again, please tell me how the Connect Advisor with help me with the read only Bentley View?  The only "helping" that I can see is that Bentley is helping themselves to my computer...  At the minimum, there should be an option to disable its installation.

    --Thanks,
