Unable to sign-in into CONNECTION client for version 11.xx.xx.xx

After reviewing the Bentley.Connect.Client.exe.log it shows error for CoreWebView2. (How to check logs: Logs Collector)

ERROR - App - Unhandled Exception caught: Microsoft.Web.WebView2.Core.WebView2RuntimeNotFoundException: Couldn't find a compatible Webview2 Runtime installation to host WebViews. ---> System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)


1. Uninstall the CONNECTION Client from Windows > Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features.

2. Install WebView2 90.0.818.46 (or newer) - download it from from: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webview2/.

This can be either the Bootstrapper or the x64 Standalone Installer.


Make sure to install the version that matches the architecture of the machine. A 64-bit release is required for CONNECTION Client 11.00.02.xx or later to function.
