    despite I add the line

    ddserv showWhat'sNew string "5.1"

    in my .cdsenv, i am still getting the what's new window, when starting icfb.

    I tried also

    ddserv showWhatsNew string "5.1"

    ddserv showWhatsNew string "no"
    ddserv showWhatsNew string nil

    It is not working.

    Can anybody help me.

    Thanks and best regard

    I got rid of mine with using the following in .cdsenv of my home

    ddserv showWhatsNew string "no"
    layout showWhatsNew string "no"
    asimenv showWhatsNew string "no"

    You have to check which .cdsenv file is being used, since there is
    priority between using .cdsenv of the current directory, home
    directory and cadence installation default directory.
    In my .....dfII/etc/tools/layout/.cdsenv file, the default command

    layout showWhatsNew string "yes" nil

    While the ddserve/.cdsenv file uses the line:
    ddserv showWhatsNew string "yes" nil

    When the pop up opens, in one of its pull down menus there is a "OFF
    AT STARTUP" option. Click it and its gone.

    Yeh, and this is saved e.g. in $HOME/.cdsenv which is NOT loaded by default
    next time you start icfb/virtuoso. So there you are again ...

    That depends one your settings for .cdsenv loading. If you are setup to load
    using CSF, then the setup.loc file will control which .cdsenv files are loaded
    and in which order.

    If not setup for CSF, then the environment variable CDS_LOAD_ENV controls
    which .cdsenv files are loaded. The default with no CSF and CDS_LOAD_ENV
    not set is to load from the $HOME.

    And here is the real problem: I don't like to save anything in my $HOME
    directory (there are plenty of reasons for this), so

    - CDS_LOAD_ENV is set to CWD
    - but all "Off at Startup"s settings are written to $HOME/.cdsenv

    A CDS_SAVE_ENV should be nice. If not set, then use CDS_LOAD_ENV and so on ...

    Actually, the saving through the env interface saves to the appropriate
    place. The problem is that the adding of the showWhatsNew envvar setting
    was not done through the env interface and was ignoring where the file was
    actually loaded from when updating it.

    I believe this is fixed in IC 6.1.4.
