Is there an option to never start the Connect Advisor automatically? Currently, I've had to uninstall the Connect Advisor to keep it from starting. I never want to see it or having it using any of my computer resources, unless I specifically start the program myself.
Unticking the "Launch..." box should have that effect:
I will have to try that one of these days. In the past, the Connect Advisor still loaded into memory, and used computer resources.
Improvements have been made. On my quick test, Connect Advisor still loads, but then it self-terminates. I don't want to waste the resources to load it every time I start Microstation. Once again, I have un-installed Connect Advisor.
This program has very little benefit. I would not mind if it were a stand-alone program, perhaps with a icon (able to be removed) in the other Bentley products to start it. But when it causes additional loading / "resource use" on the computer, the cost/benefit ratio is not there to have the thing installed.
This method does not work. Often advisor loads automatically on the very next start of connect edition. The only option is complete uninstall.
That is what I have done -- uninstalled.
