Setting the XM Pre-requisite version number with a GPO - updated to 08.09.04.xx
by Marc Thomas - 14 June 2007

If you use Microsoft Group Policies or other methods to install MicroStation XM and the pre-requisite components, you will need to set a registry key to fool MicroStation into thinking that the pre-requisite installer has run. A new key is currently being added for each new point update of the Pre-requiste package. There are currently two keys:

HKLM_SOFTWARE\Bentley\XM_Prerequisite\080903xx
HKLM_SOFTWARE\Bentley\XM_Prerequisite\080904xx

The future pattern seems clear.

An administrative template (.adm) file for use with Microsoft Group Policies is available for download.

XM_PreReqVersion.adm

Add this template to the relevant Group Policy, enable it and enter the current Pre-requisite version number, the last 8.9.3 package was 08090309. The current 8.9.4 package is 08090401 at the time of writing.
