Effective 2024-07-01, Seequent will introduce updated Annual Maintenance policies for GeoStudio products.

From this date, GeoStudio perpetual licenses that are not current on maintenance will become machine-locked to the computer or server where the software is installed.

This means they cannot be moved to another device or restored to the current device in the event of, but not limited to, software failure, virtual machine re-hosting, formatted hard drive and so forth.

This article will demonstrate how to sign into your Bentley account using GeoStudio.

Before You Start

  • You will need a version of GeoStudio that supports Bentley licensing.  You can download a supported version using the Bentley CONNECTION Client.
  • You will require an active Bentley account that has been granted GeoStudio license subscriptions.
  • Subscriptions to your account are assigned by an account administrator.
  • The account administrator is someone at your organization who allocates license availability.
  • If you need modifications to your GeoStudio subscriptions, you should contact your account administrator.

Sign in to the Bentley CONNECTION Client

  • Installing a version of GeoStudio that supports Bentley licensing will also install the Bentley CONNECTION Client.
  • The CONNECTION Client is configured to launch automatically.
  • Sign in with your existing Bentley account.
