CONNECT Advisor opens each time when MicroStation is started even though the automatic start is turned off in the settings.
CONNECT Advisor is initiated by the statement
_USTN_FIRSTDGNFILE > ConnectAdvisor

C:\Program Files\Bentley\MicroStation CONNECT Edition\MicroStation\config\system\applicationload.cfg
This variable also initiates several other modules. While it is possible to comment out the statement in that file, a) we strongly recommend that system configurations are not edited, b) the edit would need to be made to the same file on every machine and c) the file will be overwritten by subsequent updates or reinstallations.
We recommend that the change should be made in the WorkSpaceSetup.cfg contained in a Custom Configuration as follows:
Notes: we suggest commenting out the line rather than deleting it as this makes the purpose of these statements evident.
