When restarting your computer the "Ignore other applications that use dynamic data exchange (DDE)" option outside of FSR is enabled. This issue can occur when forcing FSR to shut down. This also forces the Excel process to shutdown thus saving the options set inside them.
When restarting your computer the "Ignore other applications that use dynamic data exchange (DDE)" option outside of FSR is enabled.
This feature relates to designed Office functionality. In order to segregate the Word/Excel process, this option has to be enabled. This is done to prevent the scenario where if users open documents (Word/Excel) outside of FSR, it initialises a new processes rather than using the same processes FSR uses.
If FSR is shutdown gracefully, the application will un-check that option. When a crash or unexpected shut-down of FSR occurs this will option will need to manually be un-checked.
FSR 6.5 up to the latest FSR version.
