Hide Resource Center in the Creo Browser when launching


Hide Resource Center in the Creo Browser when launching



Is there a different way to disable the ridiculous Resource Center window when starting Creo 3? I know I can do the following listed in CS174199. I do not want to have to add this setting in my users creo_parametric_customization.ui file.




Disable: Open the Welcome to Creo dialog via File > Help > Online Resources Button and uncheck the check box Show me the Resource Center in the Creo Browser when launching and close window.


When a creo_parametric_customization.ui with Welcome to Creo Window disabled is renamed as creo_parametric_admin_customization.ui and placed in Creo Load point\text directory, this setting is not recognized by Creo Parametric 3.0 on next launch.


Please help. There has to be another way.

If this is the same window that's been bugging me, it has a "don't show me again" button on the bottom.

Maybe a support case is in order if the functionality is offered but not supported elsewhere.


Thank you for your reply. You are correct, but the issue I have is that it becomes part of the .ui file. It needs to be controlled easier incase we want to turn it on and blast out stuff to the users or just don't want to deal with it.

We have the ability to turn the following tabs and the Intelligent Fastener.

enable_3dmodelspace_browser_tab no

enable_partcommunity_tab no

enable_resource_browser_tab no

intelligent_fastener_enabled no

afx_enabled no

I will be opening a ticket with PTC.


try to place your creo_parametric_customization.ui in Your working directory (not workspace)

and set config option "load_ui_customization_run_dir yes".


I use a script to copy the creo_parametric_Customization.ui and creo_parametric_admin_Customization.ui files to the users computers each time they start Creo. So I would check the box and then restart Creo and the message box would come back. I did not realize it was updating the .ui file. I copied the updated .ui file and am pushing that out now. This allows me to make changes and know users will get them the next time they start Creo. Maybe something like that could be a workaround for now.

I do agree that this setting would be better as a option. 


Hi llie,

I had the same issue this week.

Reading an article on codex was quite eye opening (Codex:Creo -->Creo UI Customization).

It says, that creo_parametric_Customization.ui has to be placed in <User>\Application Data\PTC\ProENGINEER\Wildfire\.wf\.Settings.

I solved it by running this script:

rem check, if User has own creo_parametric_customization.ui in <user-directory>

if exist "<user-directory>\creo_parametric_customization.ui" (

    rem copy user config to appdata

    copy /Y <user-directory>\creo_parametric_customization.ui %appdata%\PTC\ProENGINEER\Wildfire\.wf\.Settings

) else (

    rem copy company config to appdata

    copy /Y <company-directory>\creo_parametric_customization.ui %appdata%\PTC\ProENGINEER\Wildfire\.wf\.Settings


load_ui_customization_run_dir in is set to "yes"

works like a charm.
