Solidworks Background Downloader is trying to install 2018 SP5, which I don't want, and don't have. I have disabled the Downloader, but Solidworks still tries to install SP5 at startup. When I cancel the install, it stops everything, and I can't open Solidworks. My only way to get the program open now is to start up in openGL mode.

How can I stop the auto install process?
