    Hello again,

    We don’t have a command line switch for disabling this dialog through Silent Install yet, but we are working on it.

    In the meantime, it is possible to create a registry key to suppress this prompt. Please keep in mind that while this works in 9.4, we cannot guarantee that it will work in all version of BarTender. You should also use extreme caution when manually changing the registry contents as any other changes may have unexpected results.

    The registry key location is:

    [code]HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Seagull Scientific\BarTender\Preferences[/code]

    You will create a new String value called:

    [code]"Warn On First Run <edition> <build>"[/code]

    Where edition is something like "Professional" or "Automation", etc. and <build> is the build number

    The value to set is:


    Here is an example:
