Disable warning on Product Structure compare when preferences set to not build.

Disable warning on Product Structure compare when preferences set to not build.

Currently we use the preference "Build Image Association by Default" set to No to allow users to image associate modified models to the parent model.

For example if there is a grounding strap/cable/bulk material, etc. Library components typically. They may model it in the as-installed position/shape. We also desire to have product structure match CAD in most cases and use the CAD to Product Structure compare tool for validation. With this error set it shows a yellow warning triangle that the association wasn't built.

We get about 1-2 emails/calls every week that these items have build association errors with the yellow triangle. Sadly some are from the same people each time, but I digress.

Since we have this association purposely turned off it shouldn't be throwing a warning when it isn't built.

In modelcheck there are similar errors and warnings but you're able to adjust which are errors, warnings, or ignored. Though I know the product structure compare isn't as robust as modelcheck it would be nice to have it somewhat configurable or match the preference settings.
