- tiny popup window?

Hello pyRevit friends,

In the last weeks i get this tiny popup window on revit startup

Is this pyRevit related?

I have a startup script for connecting a network drive, here is the code if it is relevant.
It worked for a few weeks without this popup, I din#t change anything but now I get this little window.

You know I’ve seen this window pop up too from time to time. I’m pretty sure it’s pyrevit related. Though what the exact cause is I don’t know. But it appears harmless to me.
My guess is that it’s either an ironpython engine spinning up or pyrevit waiting for a file to load before further initialisation is possible

I can understand it is a bit of an eyesore, though… don’t know what can be done about it.
