Problem Description: After install CF builder in Eclipse you will receive an Evaluation expired popup, everytime you open eclipse. It always tell you thet the Standard Edition has expired and only Builder Express is available. This information is ok if it is shown only ONCE, but not on every start. Maybe someone like to use Builder Express only because he has no license.

Steps to Reproduce: 

1. Install builder into Eclipse
2. Wait until eval has expired
3. Start eclipse and you see the annoying popup every time.

Actual Result: Popup shown on every start.

Expected Result: Popup should be shown once or at least allow to disable it.

Any Workarounds: Enter a valid license code.

This is as designed to let user know that they are using express edition instead of enterprise/trial edition.

How can this as designed? I understand that is makes sense to show it ONCE, but not every time. How can I disable the notifications? People may be fine with express edition, but they do not like to get notified about not using the full license on every startup.

Hi Alex, As discussed, this is an expected behavior and we will not be fixing this. Regards, Anit Kumar
