Can I launch MicroStation and then load InRoads SS3 from the Applications Menu?
Due to the enhanced integration with MicroStation in SS3, it is no longer possible to launch MicroStation and then launch InRoads from the Applications Menu. 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:
-wsINROADS_APP=<Product Name>(for example InRoads Site would be "-wsINROADS_APP=Site")
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 08.11.09.694 and later.
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.
