Config.pro option to NOT display the "Resource center" when launching Creo3

Config.pro option to NOT display the "Resource center" when launching Creo3

Please add a config.pro option to be able to hide the "Resource center" when launching Creo3.

Even if you have a check box to "not show window again", the resource center will reaper when cleaning WS cache.

We would like to choose to not show this information in our company without having to copy creo_parametric_customization.ui in cache at each Creo3 launch.

Solution suggested by PTC :

  • Actions disabling questions in popup windows and stored in "creo_parametric_customization.ui" are not considered if file is stored as "creo_parametric_admin_customization.ui"
  • For instance, below are 2 popup windows appearing as default:
  • "New to Creo Parametric" dialog box at Creo Parametric 2.0 startup

Possibility is offered to check box "Don't ask me again".

  • When applying a new config.pro option and pressing "Ok" twice, systems opens a popup window saying:

The configuration settings that you have made will be applied to the current session only.

Do you want to save settings to a configuration file?
Possibility is offered to check box "In the future, do not show this message"

  • When box above are checked, information is stored in file "creo_parametric_customization.ui" located either in working directory or in the local cache (refer to article 37185 for further information)
  • At this point, question won't be re-asked again for future sessions as expected
  • However, if "creo_parametric_customization.ui" is:
    1. cut
    2. pasted in <Creo Parametric 2.0 load point>\Common Files\<datecode>\text
    3. renamed as "creo_parametric_admin_customization.ui"
  • System will unexpectedly re-ask again those questions when restarting new sessions.

Changes related to "Welcome to Creo 3.0" dialog through “show me the resource center in the Creo browser when launching” check box are not considered when saved to creo_parametric_admin_customization.ui in Creo Param

Hi NicolasBourgeois,

Refer to https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS187038

  • To disable Resource Center tab, set config.pro option enable_resource_browser_tab to no (starting at Creo Parametric 3.0 M010)

Hi,

I have tried this option but it doesn't work.

I have a case open with PTC R&D. There is no way to disable it which I call B.S.

You created it, you should be able to turn it off without customization.

Yes you can select do not show this window again and then it will be displayed in the embedded browser. Then you have to set a config setting for enable_resource_browser_tab to no

Then you also have to save the creo_parametric_admin_customization.ui and push the change along with your customization ribbons to your users.

I do not accept there answer and am going to bombard them at the Ask the Experts sessions at PTC LIVE unless they give me a suitable answer that works.

PTC currently has no plans to control the Resource Center via a config option at this time.  There is an option to not show again that users can select.  The setting will be saved to the users "creo_parametric_customization.ui" but if it is renamed or deleted, the resource center will be displayed again on next startup.  The Resource Center is available for users to be aware of webcasts, tutorials etc that will help them improve their productivity with Creo.  We feel this will benefit users and keep them aware of the latest information.

 

PTC continues to monitor this area and can consider such an enhancement in the future.

Dear PTC,

please, please, please finally give us a regular config.pro option to once and for all switch off the Resource Center. This feature has now annoyed dozens of designers in our company for years...

@PeterTrump Have you checked the box at the bottom? I haven't seen it in years. Make sure you don't delete or move the creo_parametric_customization.ui

 

Other config.pro options to disable the browser tabs that open:

 

  1. To disable 3DModelSpace tab:
  • set config.pro option enable_3dmodelspace_browser_tab to no
  1. To disable PARTCommunity tab:
  • set config.pro option enable_partcommunity_tab to no (starting at Creo Parametric 3.0 M010)
  1. To disable Home page tab pointing to PTC web site:
    • set config.pro option web_browser_homepage to about:blank (or another web site)
  2. To disable Resource Browser or PTC - Creo Parametric - Start tab:
  • set (hidden) config.pro option enable_resource_browser_tab to no
  • this tab is displayed when turning off the Resource Center dialog box, by ticking the Do not show window again. Display the Resource Center in the Creo Browser when launching checkbox

@StephenWilliamsThanks a lot for your suggestions!

 

We've already disabled everything that's possible through config.pro options.

 

Unfortunately creo_parametric_customization.ui as part of the Windows user profile is being deleted regularly due to certain regulations beyond my control. We've invented all kinds of workarounds by copying creo_parametric_customization.ui back to where it belongs, but this wouldn't be necessary if PTC would give us a config.pro option to switch off the Resource Center.

 

Seriously, this can't be that complicated... Again, thanks for your suggestions!

I'm sure I had that problem too. I moved my  creo_parametric_customization.ui using the config.pro option load_ui_customization_run_dir YES so it was in my start-in folder so it wouldn't get deleted upon cache cleanup.

 

Of course if your company is also copying over the  creo_parametric_customization.ui with every startup, you're stuck...but maybe, just maybe, you could convince the admin to add the disable option for the resource center to the file that is copied?!??!?!
