While Opening a .slddrw the views and BOM update themselves. How do I stop this from happening and keep the previous last saved "appearance" on all the views and BOM?

I received a folder from a vendor. He did a pack and go and sent me all the files. I want to convert all the .slddrws into .pdfs in that same folder however, when I open the .slddrws they automatically update all the views and BOM.


I am not sure if its a compatibility or a configuration issue..


How can I stop the load process from happening when they open and keep their last saved configuration ?

Or how can I convert the .slddrws without opening solidworks and letting them update ??


I guess the ideal situation would be to have him save all of them as detached drawings but there are more than a 1000 drawings..


Thanks in advance.
