Below is a list of the GEOPAK startup configuration variables and their usage.
These variables apply to the activation of GEOPAK products and the use of SELECTserver based licensing. They do not apply to SELECT node locked license files.
These variables can be placed in a .CFG file within the APPL directory of MicroStation, or within any other user or project configuration file depending on your individual configuration. If the variable is not present, operation will continue as it always has with the activation of all installed and licensed products. The Genesis for the creation of these variables was to allow individuals to install all GEOPAK products in a single directory and have control over what licenses are utilized. An example of there usefulness is: if the variables do not exist a Suite user will consume a Suite license and a Civil Extension license if they are both installed to the same directory, this would limit a second user from accessing the capability within the Civil Extension.
With the addition of these variables there are many benefits to you. These are listed below:
The variables are as follows:
GPK_STARTUP_CONFIG = 1
Will add an item below "Activate GEOPAK" called "Startup Configuration" when selected it will give you this dialog with all installed products in black and products not installed will show grayed out. You can then check the desired products you want to use. Note that "Suite" in the dialog refers to the "ROAD" pull down. The program will select the minimum license use depending on what has been checked off.
Figure 1 indicates that a Suite license will be used and you will see all Suite tools in the Applications pull down.Figure 2 indicates that a Suite license will be used and you will see only Survey and Bridge tools in the Applications pull down.Figure 3 indicates that a Site license will be used and you will see all Site tools in the Applications pull down.
To allow this functionality this variable should exist and be set to "1" no other setting is applicable. The settings will be remembered for subsequent MicroStation sessions.
The remaining variables are for automatic activation of specific products and can be set to "1" for ON and "0" for OFF. If set to "1" all applicable application pull downs will be available. If set to "0" all applicable application pull downs will not be available.
