Is there any hope that the component downloading every time one opens the config tools can be disabled, or at least limited?
On MCUXpresso 11.3, every time I pop into the Config Tools to tweak something or generally fidget, program execution pauses while components are re-downloaded. A nice idea, if one has a blazing corporate level internet, but on a modest home internet it's downright annoying. Besides I doubt very much if anything has substantially changed since a few minutes ago when I last checked.
How about the components are re-downloaded upon cranking up MCUXpresso? Or perhaps on demand?
These superfluous downloads seems just an unnecessary annoyance
in this case, could you, as I mentioned below:
and report here the observation/result?
could you please post screenshot where you can see the Config Tools are downloading the components (every time)?
What the Config Tools should do is to create check whether there's a new processor/board or component data on server. If nothing updated, nothing should be downloaded.
As a workaround you can disable automatic download of new data in "Window | Preferences". Either completely work offline, or disable updates for already downloaded data:
