Re: "Minimizing updates to the database" FAQ

Yes -- testing on Win7 x64, I disabled multi-user mode and access date updates, restarted UR, opened a database, and waited 30 minutes. The Date modified timestamp on the .urd file did not change.
I downloaded, closed UR, ran (merged) DisableMultiUserMode.reg and confirmed existance of the key/value using Regedit. Next, I started UR, looked for Tools | Options | Miscellaneous, Delay, but there is no Delay option (at least not in URp 4.2). Finally, I set "Tools | Options | Editor | Auto-save changes every x minutes" to 15.
This option was moved to the Trees (More) tab in 4.2 -- I've updated the FAQ for this. But changing the option value in the GUI was not actually updating this setting -- this is fixed in the latest download (
Despite these actions and even closing/starting UR a second time, the database is still being updated every 60 seconds when open and not in use.

Maybe try restarting Windows to make sure UR is fully restarted.
