Visual Build Pro 7 making random connections?

Since I'm using Visual Build Pro 7, I noticed it sometimes tries to connect to "crl.comodoca.com" when starting a build. I've never seen this with version 6.

I dunno why it's doing this, or whatever it's trying to download, but since my builds typically only require local stuff, I'd rather disable it. Is that possible?

Or, actually I'm wondering, what does VBP7 need from crl.comodoca.com exactly?

VBP itself doesn't connect to anything external. VBP does verify its digital signature at times (for security reasons). I suspect what's happening is that calling the Windows API to verify a signature (WinVerifyTrust) causes Windows to retrieve a certificate revocation list (CRL) to determine if the certificate has been revoked. setreg.exe can be used to prevent the external lookup:

There also appears to be a flag available to prevent the revocation list lookup when verifying a signature, which we'll use in the next release.
