'Welcome to Citydesk'
What determines whether or not this dialog gets displayed? Is it a registry setting?
I think it depends on whether or not you have opened a CityDesk file before, and if so, whether it can be opened now. Generally CityDesk returns to the last CTY you were working on, but if that's not available (deleted, moved, on an unreachable network share, etc.) then it re-pops the dialog.
