Running on MacOS, version 3.4 seems to require access to the internet before it will start. Is there a way to disable this?
What is it saying exactly? You'll need an ilok auth to run the software, but this does not require internet access once you have the auth on your ilok or machine
My initial diagnose was a bit premature, it does load, just takes about 10-15 seconds, rather than instant when allowed to go outbound to the internet. I can't see anything helpful in Console either.
That does seem very strange. Many facilities are not allowed to connect their Renderer machines to the internet for security reasons and so we design the software with this in mind. I shall investigate load time further.
