See the AutoPIPE Vessel Quick Start Guide for more information on downloading and installing AutoPIPE Vessel.
AutoPIPE Vessel is installed from one executable. The configuration of AutoPIPE Vessel includes these features:
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.
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:
The wizard steps you through the activation process based on the options selected.
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.
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.
If you are not a Bentley SELECT subscriber and you are activating AutoPIPE Vessel, you are presented with three options:
