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.
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.
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.
You can disable CONNECT Advisor in your application.
After you have launched your application, you can invoke/launch CONNECT Advisor and when the main window dialog is shown
you can go the settings inside of CONNECT Advisor and disable it, by selecting the "Do not launch at Startup" option and saving the settings
Tell me how any of this helps you with Bentley View?
"CONNECT Advisor boosts productivity"? Productivity means "drafting" and getting a quality product with the least amount of expense, ie time/labor. Our employees know what they are doing and are proficient at Microstation using the tools that we need for our projects. So there is no additional productivity for us, but there is more distractions and time wasted, and more overhead on our computers--with nothing good coming from it.
Connect Advisor should not be forced on you. If anything, it should be a non-required option.

Maybe I'm looking at this whole thing the wrong way. The ribbon was suppose to make tools more "discoverable" for the new person. The "Connect Advisor" is supposed give you training, help, and a unified place to find everything because you don't know where to look. It sounds like this is the "Bentley Beginner" line of products. I meant to be using the "Bentley Expert" line of products. Where can I find that?
