The connection client want to ALWAYS start, even when no Bentley products are running. Why does this matter? Because I'd prefer you don't have an avenue of monitoring my activities when I am doing personal business such as banking or chatting with clients. I know, you would never do that and I believe you but it is just good business to run your monitoring software only when needed.
Here's what happens: I am not doing CAD work, I am doing other stuff. No Bentley products are needed nor running. So, I close Connection client, or perhaps I never logged in when it popped up this morning. After it is closed, within a few minutes it pops up again, and again, and again.
I totally agree with you.
