Product Activation

How to Activate AutoPIPE®  Vessel

Product activation is achieved by connecting to a SELECT Server, receiving a verification that your SELECT Server Name and Activation Key are correct, and successfully posting Usage logs. Product activation is not the same as checking out a license. This document describes how to configure AutoPIPE Vessel for activation. After initial configuration, AutoPIPE Vessel automatically and transparently tries to activate each time it runs, and runs unconstrained for a period of 30 days after its last successful activation. However, if activation is unsuccessful for a period of 30 days, AutoPIPE Vessel will not start until it is activated again.

Activating a product using the Product Activation Wizard

The Product Activation Wizard is designed to step users through the product activation process. After a product is installed, you must obtain a license and then activate that license. Obtaining the license alone is not enough to complete the process. This wizard eliminates the confusion and makes it clear that obtaining a license and activating a product are two essential steps.

The Product Activation Wizard opens automatically (unless the "Activate product using Bentley License Tool" check box is turned off) at the end of the product installation process. See the AutoPIPE Vessel Quick Start Guide for more information on installing AutoPIPE Vessel.

The first screen of the Product Activation Wizard offers four product activation options:

      • SELECT subscribers with a deployed (local) SELECT Server
      • SELECT subscribers activating against a hosted (Bentley) SELECT Server
      • Non-SELECT users
      • Evaluation Only - No license information

The wizard steps you through the activation process based on the options selected.

SELECT subscribers with a deployed (local) SELECT Server

If you are activating against a local SELECT Server, you must provide the proper Server Name and Activation Key. The Server Name and Activation Key, along with any proxy configuration information, can be obtained from your Site Administrator.

      1. Enter the name of the server in the Server Name field.
      2. Enter the site activation key in the Site Activation Key field.
      3. If you are using HTTPS, enable the HTTPS (SSL) check box.
      4. If you are using a Proxy server to connect to the hosted SELECT Server, click the Proxy button and fill in the Proxy Server information then click OK.
      5. Click Test Connection to verify the connection to the SELECT Server.
      6. Click Next. The Wizard Selections dialog box displays the information provided on the previous dialog boxes.
      7. Review the information and click Finish to activate the product.

SELECT subscribers activating against a hosted (Bentley) SELECT Server

If you are activating against a hosted (Bentley) SELECT Server, the Server Name is pre-populated but you must provide the proper Activation Key provided by the Bentley Sales Support Center.

      1. Enter the site activation key in the Site Activation Key field.
      2. If you are using HTTPS, enable the HTTPS (SSL) check box.
      3. If you are using a Proxy server to connect to the hosted SELECT Server, click the Proxy button and fill in the Proxy Server information then click OK.
      4. Click Test Connection to verify the connection to the SELECT Server.
      5. Click Next. The Wizard Selections dialog box displays the information provided on the previous dialog boxes.
      6. Review the information and click Finish to activate the product.

NON-SELECT user

If you are not a Bentley SELECT subscriber and you are activating AutoPIPE Vessel, you are presented with three options:

      • I have a license file ready to import
      • I have an activation key
      • I do not have any license information

a. I have a license file ready to import

        1. Enter the path to your license file (or Browse to the location of your license file) in the License File field.
        2. Click Next. The Wizard Selections dialog box displays the information provided on the previous dialog boxes.
        3. Review the information and click Finish to activate the product.

b. I have an activation key

        1. Enter the site activation key in the Site Activation Key field.
        2. If you are using HTTPS, enable the HTTPS (SSL) check box.
        3. If you are using a Proxy server to connect to the hosted SELECT Server, click the Proxy button and fill in the Proxy Server information then click OK.
        4. Click Test Connection to verify the connection to the SELECT Server.
        5. Click Next. The Check out license now? page displays.
        6. Enter your Email address in the Email Address field.
        7. Select the product to be activated (if not pre-populated) it the Product Name field.
        8. Enter the product version number (if not pre-populated) in the Product Version field.
        9. Click Next. The Wizard Selections dialog box displays the information provided on the previous dialog boxes.
        10. Review the information and click Finish to activate the product.

c. I do not have any license information

        1. The product will run in evaluation mode.
        2. Click Go To Bentley.com to request activation information.

Evaluation Only - No license information

        1. The product will run in evaluation mode.
        2. Click Go To Bentley.com to request activation information.
