How do I Install, License, and Run AutoPIPE ATS (Automatic Test Set) 09.06 to 12.07?



1. Because of the significant amount of resources, not all versions of AutoPIPE are going to have an company ATS created. It may take 2-6 weeks after an AutoPIPE version is release before an ATS is available. The QA manager will ship a QA DVD containing all the software: AutoPIPE versions, ATS, etc.. to the designated person on your QA contract.  

2. Each release of an ATS version is specifically created for a specific version of AutoPIPE. Therefore, the ATS software version must match the AutoPIPE software version. Do NOT mix the versions of these applications as it will void the test results and may ultimately fail to run properly..

3. IF you are part of the QA&R program files cannot be downloaded from the internet. All applications must be installed from the media (i.e. CD, DVD) that was sent to your by the Bentley QA Manager. Any other method of installation will void the certification of the install under the QA&R program.
