OpenLM constantly receives requests for the support of additional license managers. One specifically persistent request was for the Bentley license manager.

With the introduction of the “Unmanaged Licenses” method, it is now possible to monitor Bentley managed applications (e.g. Microstation) by following the Bentley processes on the end users’ workstations.
