Configuration Changes - ProStructures CONNECT Edition Update 1

In ProStructures CONNECT Edition Update 1, you can define two Configuration locations at install time:

  1. The First Configuration is the Delivered Configuration.
    1. This is the location where the example WorkSpaces are installed.
    2. By default, it is installed in C:\ProgramData\Bentley\ProStructures CONNECT Edition\Configuration\ folder.
    3. To install it at another location, select the location in the Delivered Configuration field in the Configuration page of the installer.
    4. Note that you cannot install the Delivered Configuration to C:\ProgramData\Bentley\ProStructures CONNECT Edition\Configuration, since this was the location of Configuration in previous CONNECT Edition releases and would cause conflicts.
  1. The Second Configuration is the Custom Configuration, which can contain user’s WorkSpaces and WorkSets.
    1. To change the path of this Configuration, in the Configuration page accessed during installation, select the Custom Configuration (plus Delivered Configuration) radio button and then set the path in the Custom Configuration field.
    2. This Custom Configuration path is in turn written in the ConfigurationSetup.cfg file.
    3. The WorkSpaces created in this Configuration are displayed as Custom Configuration WorkSpaces in the Work Page.

Note: It is highly recommended that you use the Custom Configuration for your work and not the Delivered Configuration. The Delivered Configuration primarily contains example data for your reference and may get updated in future releases.

The main difference between the Configuration settings in ProStructures CONNECT Edition Update 1 versus the previous CONNECT Edition releases is that previously, at install time, you could define the path for WorkSpaces and Organization folders within a Configuration; whereas now you can define the path of the Configuration folder itself.

If you have a previous release of ProStructures CONNECT Edition installed, and have custom WorkSpaces created, then while upgrading you should point the Custom Configuration field to the folder that contains the WorkSpaceSetup.cfg file of your Configuration. If the custom WorkSpaces were created in the delivered Configuration folder (C:\ProgramData\Bentley\ProStructures CONNECT Edition\Configuration), then you should point the Custom Configuration field to that location. While upgrading, the Custom Configuration field by default points to C:\ProgramData\Bentley\ProStructures CONNECT Edition\Configuration.

Post-installation, you can define a third location of Configuration using the <-WR> command line argument. Such a Configuration is displayed as User Configuration in the WorkSpaces drop-down list in the Work Page.
