I have been playing with MicroStation CONNECT and studying ProjectWise CONNECT.
While Bentley has changed names and operability of its MicroStation configuration levels (organization, workspaces, worksets, roles), it appears that Bentley has not made any changes to the managed workspace levels (site, project, discipline, etc.) in ProjectWise .
Is Bentley formally defining any parallels between MicroStation CONNECT configuration levels and the ProjectWise CONNECT managed workspace levels? Will the managed workspace levels change names or operability in ProjectWise CONNECT in future releases? Does the MicroStation CONNECT WorkSpaceSetup.cfg file have any impact on ProjectWise managed workspace CSB's? Will MicroStation users experience anything in the interface that says "WorkSpace" or "WorkSet" when working in the ProjectWise CONNECT environment?
Thanks Mark, I have been struggling with ABD update 3 vs PW 280...
Finally got it to "work" although it still seems very temperamental... I set both the Worksetsroot and Workspacesroot (why make it simple when it can be oh so complicated...) in the predefined CSB, all else was failing miserably...
I actually disabled the _TF_WORKSPACEROOT also which didn't seem to have any negative side-effects...
All in all, hours spent during which I'd rather be designing :-) Thanks again.
Oh also I associated the files with Microstation, if associated with ABD CE I get the error message "cannot load mcm.ma".... Talk about trial and error ! :-)
Thanks for these details Kevin, I now more than ever realize I need a computer science degree to be able to use Bentley products...
And also days of 24 hours are really too short... please god :-))
Thanks again, I will try and digest all this.
Glad to see I'm not the only one :-). Thanks for all the useful details I'm getting from you indirectly :-)
Hi Phil, I've used a pdf called AECOsim Building Designer CONNECT Edition ProjectWise Managed Configuration Deployment Guide: v1.2 June 2017... Is there a newer version or I can assume the link you give here for Microstation is valid for ABD CE?
I found a few
This is one for OpenBuildings:
And this one for OpenRoads Designer:
