Fragen zum PreSurfer for Bentley Licences:
The PreSurfer ensures that an overusage of Bentley licenses is excluded. Thus, you can reliably avoid non-controllable additional usage fees.
We are the only manufacturer that protects against overusages with OpenRoads products, Speedikon and sisNET, also in combination with Citrix.
Only licenses checked out on the SelectServer are out of reach of PreSurfer. Somit wäre dies zu unterbinden bzw. es müsste dahingehend Vorsorge getroffen werden, als das die im PreSurfer Lizenzpool vorhandenen Bentley Lizenzen um die Anzahl der ausgescheckten Lizenzen vermindert werden.
Since the previous versions of the MicroStation V8i are also addressed with a Bentley ID, it is also possible for the PreSurfer to monitor them.
You can still evaluate Bentley software products that have not yet been registered
With an administrative account the client part of the PreSurfer can be deactivated and Open Access can be enabled. On the client side, the administrator is also able to allow Open Access for certain products, while other Bentley products remain under license control of the PreSurfer.
On the PreSurfer server a license file, e.g. for 100 clients, will be generated. Once PreSurfer is installed and started on the client, it is logged into the database. If the 100th client has been installed, the server will not allow any further PreSurfer clients to be added.
These are not floating licenses!
Corporate Montage is committed to covering the future Bentley software updates and upgrades as well as new software products from Bentley Systems through the PreSurfer. For this, a maintenance contract is offered, via which updates of the PreSurfers can be obtained.
If the PreSurfer is introduced to you, we ask the first days for the transmission of the PreSurfer log files. This only serves to ensure the quality of the system and to determine the proper functionality of the system.
If you would like to install new updates and upgrades in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us to ensure a 100% secure license control with the PreSurfer.
The Citrix licensing relys on the pc-name + user name that are connecting to the Citrix server.
1. Stop the service “presurferlocalservice”
2. Uninstall the application “presurferlocalservice”
3. Uninstall the application “runner”
4. Uninstall the application “licensing” or “ilicensing” (if available)
5. Delete the file “zz_presurfer.cfg” from all BENTLEY directories „config\appl“ (these directories are available in every product which can be accessed autonomously)
6. Check or, if necessary, delete the registry entries under: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\ containing entries for BENTLEY EXE files. Such as ustation.exe, rail.exe, inroads.exe, etc.
You want to use a Bentley product on your notebook with a customer, but already know that you can not establish a VPN connection to the company network?
Administratively, the PreSurfer can be disabled on this client.
If it is the pure MicroStation, for example, the following registry entry must be deleted:
reg delete “HKLM \ SOFTWARE \ Wow6432Node \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ ImageFileExecutionOptions \ ustation.exe”
As well as the associated CFG file:
del “C: \ Program Files (x86) \ Bentley \ MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries) \ MicroStation \ config \ appl \ zz_presurfer.cfg”
Please create a batch file to enable or disable preventive protection.
Please be aware that you also have to minimize the number of licenses in your license pool in the PreSurfer database according to the number of temporarily disabled licenses.
