DisableTracing - Prevents .trace file generation when Log Monitor is running

Thinstall's Log Monitor utility can be used to produce a .trace file for applications run by Thinstall. This option can be used to disable the ability to produce trace files for specific applications.


This prevents an application from creating a .trace file even if Log Monitor is running 

This allows Log Monitor to create a .trace file (default)  

It may be desirable to turn off .trace file generation capabilities for several reasons:

· For security purposes, it may be preferable to hide execution history from prying eyes  
· During testing, it may be useful to turn off tracing for specific Thinstalled applications that are known to work, since producing extra .trace files represents a waste of disk space and CPU time
