How to prevent a user from opening the toolboxes "Clash Detection" and "Schedule Simulation" and thus avoid that unintentionally a chargeable license is used for it.
In order to limit the possibilities for opening these toolboxes "Clash Detection" and "Schedule Simulation", they should be removed from the menu and the toolboxes.
These toolboxes can be opened via the menu as follows:Menu item: "Tools"> "Clash Detection"andMenu item: "Tools"> "Animation"> "Schedule Simulation"
Toolbox "Animation" contains the "Schedule Simulation" tool.

The following Wikis describe how to delete / remove and restore menu items or menu items:Restore deleted menu items in MicroStation V8 XM EditionHow to remove items from the main menu bar
The menu item "Clash Detection" should then be removed via this procedure.
You should not simply remove the menu item "Animation" since it contains other animation-specific toolboxes.You should copy the "Animation" toolbox instead, rename it and remove the "Schedule Simulation" toolbox from the copy of the Animation toolbox and place the Open command for the copy of the Animation toolbox in the Animation menu item. Since menu items which had been integrated by the system cannot be edited, it must be copied and inserted at the same position. The original can then be deleted and the change to the copied menu entry can be made.In the example below, the copy of the toolbox is called "Animation_1" and according to this the Open command for the new menu item "Animation" needs to be named "dialog toolbox animation_1".

Using this method, you can copy the "Animation" toolbox from "Application Tools" > "MicroStation" to your own DGNLIB.Afterwards, this copy can be renamed "Animation_1" (according to the toolbox Open command "dialog toolbox animation_1" stored in the above menu command example from menu item "Animation"). In this toolbox "Animation_1" you only have to delete the toolbox "Schedule Simulation".

For the original toolbox "Animation" you could disable the toolbox "Schedule Simulation" additionally by right-clicking.More about hiding tools in toolboxes is described in the following wiki:Some of the icons or toolboxes are missing
