Morning Guys,

I have finally after months grown tired of a new product being created every time I first launch CATIA. Anywhere in the settings where I can stop this?

Hi Sandeep,

You need to add the variable:

CatNoStartDocument=1

into your environment file.

Amit, Where is this environment file? and where would I insert that string of text?

Thanks for your response

Morning Sandeep,

The environment file on a Windows7 machine can be found in:

C:\ProgramData\DassaultSystemes\CATEnv

Find the text file applicable to the CATIA version you are looking for. e.g. My V5R20 install environment file is called: CATIA.V5R20.B20.txt

At the top of the text file it shows:

!---------------------------------------------------------- ! DASSAULT SYSTEMES - V5 ENVIRONMENT FILE !---------------------------------------------------------- ! MODE : Global ! TYPE : CATIA ! TMSTMP : xxxxxxxxxx ! ARGS : -cs CATIA -a global -icon yes -menu yes -tools !----------------------------------------------------------

CatNoStartDocument=1

Note I have added "CatNoStartDocument=1" below the top line. There is a lot more text below too.

Just for additional information, you can prevent the splash screen that appears everytime CATIA is launched (before the application loads). Add "CNextSplashScreen=no" below the above text variable.

IF you are happy with this solution, please mark it as "Solved" by selecting the tick to the left of this message.

Learning more and more about CATIA everyday. I guess this is more of an Admin thing than user. Interesting read and works well.
