It looks like CONNECT automatically loads any mdl apps that were loaded when it is exited. Although this avoids the user needing to set the MS_DGNAPPS or add them to the "Design Applications" config section, this is not alway desireable. I have several apps that I do not want to automatically load at startup.
Is there a way to tell CONNECT not to auto load certain mdl apps or just not to auto load any?
Hi Loren, Maybe it is a good idea to post this in the MicroStation programming forums communities.bentley.com/.../microstation_programming Also review this link communities.bentley.com/.../running-mdl-applications
MicroStation initialization. MicroStation loads programs specified by the MDL environment variables MS_INITAPPS and MS_DGNAPPS
also check the help, searching for "To Specify MDL Applications for Automatic Loading", provide the following information: configuration variable dialog under category list: Design Applications shows all the applications for automatic loading.
By default i get just the following
I am not able to reproduce your issue.
Note: When you add any applications to MS_DGNAPPS configuration variable, then this application is automatically loaded when MicroStation starts. This is the default behavior.
Is the folder for your displayrule.ma set in MS_MDL and MS_MDLAPPS? I think that is required to reproduce this issue. I am aware of the MS_DGNAPPS variable and the apps that are auto loading are not included in that. As you can see below, no apps other than “BENTLEY” are set to autoload, however if I “mdl load tscan” then exit, it is auto loaded next session:

Does MicroStation modify your MS_DGNAPPS variable?
