When I am away from the internet (often) and web hints are still switched on, opening a RM database causes the program to keep re-trying to connect to the internet (cannot connect to Ancestry message) and does not give the option of switching off web hints or not connecting to internet.
Even if I immediately go Tools, File Options and turn off web hints, it carries on trying to connect (probably once per person in my database) and locks up doing that so I can't just ignore it.
The only way out is to terminate RM using Windows Task Manager.
Once I've managed to turn off the web hints and killed the RM task, I can restart it and work OK as it has then read that web hints are not required.
If I remember to un-tick the web hints box in the File Options before I go off internet, I don't have a problem. I don't have to sign out of Ancestry, just un-tick the one box.
Please fix RM to stop trying to connect to internet unless we tell it to carry on trying and please include a "Don't re-try" option in that error box.
