I've had this problem in the past with other versions of RDi / RBD. What I've been able to do in the past is change the directory of my workspace when RDi / RBD first opens and it seemed to remember it from that point forward. My problem now is RDi / RBD 9.1 won't show me the prompt to select a workspace and it opens up the one in the roaming folder which is the one I don't want. However I can change to the workspace once I'm into RDi / RBD, but it's kind of a pain to do that every day when I launch RDi / RBD. There's got to be something that is causing it to do this.

What do you use to start RDi/RBD? Is it a shortcut on your desktop or start menu? Make sure there are no command-line arguments specifying the workspace in those shortcuts.

Otherwise I would expect RDi/RBD to prompt for a workspace if you are absolutely certain that option is in your preferences.

Adding a data point. Windows 7, 32 bit. I normally click a shortcut on my desktop and RDi opens my workspace without a prompt.

So the behaviour is as I expect.

When I close RDi and re-start it from Start > Programs, RDi opens my typical workspace without a prompt. Which is also as I expect.
