How to open a master file without attached references? This example could be helpful to check if a file doesn't open because of corrupt reference files.
Right click on the icon and select "properties".
Under the shortcut tab, highlight the target field and add -o to the end of the script after the parenthesis.
For example in OpenRoads CONNECT Edition: "C:\Program Files\Bentley\OpenRoads Designer CE 10.10\OpenRoadsDesigner\OpenRoadsDesigner.exe" -o
After the change has been made, select "Apply" then "Ok"
After this the master file should open without the attached references.
