*Note: The AutoPLANT Plant Design Workgroup applications are only supported on a Microsoft Access database in a single user, non-networked environment. For a multi-user, server based project environment, SQL Server or ORACLE® must be deployed.
The problem can be corrected by changing the config.ini file for the project in question. The config.ini file can be found here for each project:
The path to the menu files that are loaded with Piping are found in this file. Search in this file for the menu path and make sure it is correct. once done save and close the file.
This can also be done using Project Administrator under the Piping, Equipment, and/or Iso Sections for your project depending on the application that experiences the problem.

Respected Bentley Team,
Subject: Want to know how sql server database can be more helpful than MS-access in Bentley application for Piping?
My question is related to the piping and equipment in Bentley application.
In our company , we are using MS-Access database for having the piping information of various process drawing.
We are thinking about to use sql server database , but before that we want following information so that we can take proper decision for database.
1> Want to know how sql server can be more helpful than MS-access in Bentley application for Piping?
2> How many user can update the same database in same table at a time if we use sql server database?
3> What is the exact limitation of "project size" for MS-access,sql server and oracle? , means want to know exact size of project, so that according to our project size , we can go / think for Sql server or other database.
4> Is it possible , If we install Sql server,only on server(workstation) and client on user PC,then accessing from client user's PC only...?
5> Can we create/set different user's login access as per their permission level in Sql server, If yes,then let me know how, step by step?
6> I am creating crystal report for various reports , then How the "i-model Driver for Crystal Reports" can be more helpful? , if yes then please let me know how to use it step by step.
