Re: how to disable the auto launch in canon EOS utility on my mac?

Unfortunately, on a Mac, the EOS utility version 2 & 3 will force themselves to be listed once again on the user's auto login/startup list anytime you use the utility.  So go ahead, tell it not to autostart when a camera is connected.  Remove the stupid utility from your list of auto login items, EACH AND EVERY TIME YOU USE it.  

 

What a feature !!!!

On my Mac the "do not launch" check mark is sticky, so connecting a camera won't launch EOSU, even though EOSU is in the top bar (not sure what its called).

SImilar problem on windows.  It always starts up, but can be set to not open the up a window on camera connect.  Rather annoying to have it open at all.  For Windows (assuming you removed it from autostart), when you start it up manually it adds itself to the users STARTUP folder.

Don't know if applies to macs, but definitely doesn't to PC users.  No such option as login items.
