I've been working with IBM on a related problem. They had me open up RBD with -clean and that seemed to fix the problem of not prompting for the workspace.

There is. Add -showlocation to the end of the command line. A Window will pop up showing the workspace location. You can browse for another.

There is probably a command-line argument - Paul mentioned the
possibility, I just looked into the help text for running Eclipse
(this was under a section on the workbench). I think you might have
the -data command-line argument, in which you name a workspace and
won't get the prompt - see if that's the case if you are using a
shortcut or something pinned to your task bar or ???

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. File >

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.
