See the following WIKI here for downloading the following applications:
Bentley SelectSERVER Gateway
Note, the following applications are no longer available for download:
AutoPIPE 2004 (08.05.xx.xx - 08.06.xx.xx)
Please file a Bentley Service Request asking for these versions to made available to you.
After downloading all 4 of the applications above continue with the following steps below.
AutoPIPE 6.0 to 9.0 are not authorized to run on Windows VISTA, Win7 or higher; doing so will be at your own risk. Since the application has not been tested on these Operating Systems, Bentley cannot guarantee the program functionality and/or output results. No technical support will be provided for this installation. Please install on Windows XP SP2 or later, or Windows 2000 SP4 or later and continue with following instructions.
Note: another option would be to install these applications on a Virtual Machine (VM) with the correct OS but capable of being run with in a Virtual environment on the latest architecture.
Download Plant Security Manager v08.06.00.01 by clicking on the following link:
Save the application file to your hard drive.
(Note: Do not run this application from the web site)
Install Bentley SelectSERVER and Bentley SelectSERVER Gateway in the correct locations as directed in their installation instructions.
For those using PreXM applications licensing on a Select SERVER XM require a pointer file. The pointer file points the application to the location of the Select SERVER GATEWAY.
These files go on the user’s computer. Log onto the computer where the Select Server GATEWAY was installed. Navigate to the following location: (Assuming XP OS) Start> Setting> Control Panel> System> Computer Name Tab> Copy the full computer name, EXACTLY, to the first dot (computer domain name extensions are not required).
The Pointer file contains the following one line of information:
SERVER=“SS computer name”
Open a text editor, such as notepad; copy the above information into the program file. Modify the red words with the computer name from the Select Server GATEWAY computer. The name is case sensitive and the “ “ are required.
After completing the modification, select File> Save As> save this file to the C:\Program Files\Bentley\program\licensing using each of the file names listed below: Make sure the file is saved as a .lic file and not a .txt file
AutoPIPE Pointer Files Names:
Note: the number one failure of licensing is correct spelling and syntax of the pointer files. All the files contain the same information just different file names. Be vigilant when creating these files.
Step 1: Select the AutoPIPE program icon from:
Start> Program> AutoPIPE> AutoPIPE for Windows
Step 2: The Welcome to AutoPIPE screen will appear.
Step 3: Depending on your Select SERVER contract; Press AutoPIPE Standard or AutoPIPE Plus button.
Step 4: If licensing was correctly installed, the application is now checking for an available license. If a valid license has been located, the “Welcome to AutoPIPE” screen disappears and the application is ready for use. Verify by inspecting the top of the application bar. The specified design code should appear in the applications bar at the top of the application window.
Step 5: If the licensing is not correctly done.
Applications that should be installed: (if not please update)
Confirm the following are updated and status set to started (control panel/admin tools/services/)
Note: If the program reverts to DEMO mode, confirm licensing settings (especially pointer file names and location)
Select Start> Run> regedit.
After the program opens navigate to the following location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE> SOFTWARE> Bentley> Security
On the right pane/window find PathName = ?????
Document this PathName. Move all the LIC (license) files into this directory.
Contact the Select Server Admin, request that they check the Select Server Gateway services are started.
On the Gateway computer, Select Control Panel> Administration Tools> Services> Bentley Select Server Gateway> Status > Started.
If you are having troubles with the Select Server Gateway on the server, install the Select Server Gateway on the client’s computer and reconfigure the Gateway Pointer files with the correct computer name. Again verify that the Gateway Service are started.
There are known issue that occurred with earlier versions of Select Server XM. Suggest updating to current version Also, confirm there is no check out restrictions for the application or user, and the application is available for checkout.
On the user's computer, assuming OS is XP:
On the machine that SELECT Server XM is installed on
(***Please note: If this is Select Server 08.11.00.00 or newer please copy the YACLAP.dll from C:\Program Files\Bentley\SELECTserver\Bin to C:\Program Files\Bentley\SELECTserver then run the following from a command line.***)
Pre-XM versions of AutoPIPE are known to have issues with the SELECT Server Gateway. However, the following workaround may resolve the problem.
This process checks out a license for AutoPIPE Plus on the Gateway that will be used to satisfy license requests for pre-XM versions of the product on client workstations.
The Gateway license workaround makes the Plant Security Check-in-out workaround in Step #1 unnecessary. A license does not need to be checked out on the client machine prior to opening AutoPIPE. AutoPIPE should automatically retrieve a license when opened now that a license is checked out on the Gateway
As for the cause, AutoPIPE licenses work differently than most other Bentley product licenses. This different behavior does not work well with the SELECT Server Gateway. AutoPIPE XM and later versions do not use the SELECT Server Gateway, avoiding the problem altogether.
After 30 days, the license would be automatically checked back in to Select Server; you will have to repeat this process again.
