Free License Borrowed Dialog Closer for AutoCAD & Autodesk Advance Steel

From the Autodesk App Store:

Do you use a borrowed network license and want to prevent the "License Borrowed" message from showing up every single time you start Autodesk® AutoCAD®?

[The license on this machine has been borrowed from a license server. You can continue to use this product during the borrow period without a connection to the license server. The borrow period for this license expires on: … To access the product again after the license expires, you must reconnect to a license server.]

With this freeware for AutoCAD and verticals it is possible. It will automatically close this dialog box for you.

Tip: It is possible to get it started together with AutoCAD if you create a BAT, CMD or VBS file and use calls like this:

start "" "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2019\acad.exe" /p MyProfile
