disabling the PTC LearningConnector in the 6.0 m090 Help Center?

Has anyone figured out how to do this?

If you haven't seen it yet, in m090 (not sure when it started, I'm
upgrading from m010 to m090), there is some dynamic content provided at the
top of the view frame (below the toolbar) ... *every* view frame ... that
theoretically allows you access the eLearning and Knowledge Base content on
the PTC website.

What this means is that the content you are looking for, seeking help for,
is pushed lower in the frame, perhaps off the page forcing a scroll.

Further, it indicates that "your administrator" installed it. Which would
be me. Hey, waitaminute!? I did? I don't remember choosing to do so. Maybe
I did. Can I take it back?

Somewhat contradicting the statement that your administrator is
responsible, Arbortext Documentation Changes states that it is "Brought to
you by PTC University." Sigh.

Hi Paul,

Check out this topic in the Windchill Help Center on ptc.com. (

Awesome, Dan. Thanks a ton!

For the records, this is the slightly modified procedure outlined in Dan's
link above:

Find this file. Make a backup copy of the original in-place. Make a copy on
your desktop. Edit that copy (notes on how will follow). Copy it over the
original. (Edit on Desktop, copy into original location strategy gets
around Win7 security that wouldn't let me edit in-place.)

editorinstallpath\hc\project\_templates\frame\javascript\toolbar.js

In the file, find the following line fairly near the top (line 18 or 19 if
I recall):
// LearningConnector

And comment out (prepend each line with "// ") the following six or so
lines:
// var ptc_plms_precheck=(function(){var f="
g=";var h={},pause=true,plms_server_alive=true,tid=0;function
pause_load(){pause=true}function resume_load(){pause=false}function

getFrameTagByName(a,b){var
c=a.getElementsByTagName("frame");if(c.length==0){return null}for(var
i=0;i<c.length;i++){if(typeof(c[i].id)!=&quot;unknown&quot;){if(c[i].id==b){return<br/>c[i]}}}var d=null;for(var
i=0;i<c.length;i++){d=getframetagbyname(getiframedocument(c[i]),b);if(d!=null){break}}return<br/>d}var
