Can I launch MicroStation and then load InRoads SS3/SS4 from the Applications Menu or mdl load InRoads from within MicroStation?
Due to the enhanced integration with MicroStation, it is no longer possible to launch MicroStation and then launch InRoads from the Applications Menu. It is also not possible to mdl load InRoads from within MicroStation. An additional program switch is now required which must load a portion of the InRoads functionality on startup of MicroStation.
The follow two switches are now required on the InRoads target:
-wsLoad_InRoads_SS3=1 or -wsLoad_InRoads_SS4=1
-wsINROADS_APP=<Product Name>(for example InRoads Suite would be "-wsINROADS_APP=Suite")
In the first release of SS3 (08.11.09.493), it was possible to open the product with InRoads and then immediately close the InRoads program. This is no longer the case in versions 08.11.09.674 and later. In these later versions, InRoads can still be launched from the MicroStation icon if both switches above are added to the MicroStation target. However, InRoads will already be activated and cannot be closed without also closing MicroStation.
