Bentley Publisher does not need a ProjectWise Web Server to allow clients to Publish from their workstation. However, you need to be an Administrator on your workstation in order to install the needed vprctl.dll in order to publish successfully. To install the VPR Control on a workstation:
Copy the contents of the VPR folder from the ‘C:\Program Files\Common Files\Bentley Shared\Vpr’ from the Plot or Publishing server to a location on your local system.
Open a command prompt to the folder , on Windows Vista / Windows 7 systems, with User Access Control enabled, you will need to open an elevated command prompt (right click, “Run as Administrator”)
Example cd C:\vpr
Register the VPRCTL dll by running this command regsvr32 vprctl.dll
Launch Internet Explorer to your Publishing site and you should be able to Publish/View a document.
