Preventing MapBasic Tools from Auto-loading in MapInfo Pro

Products affected: MapInfo Pro™

When troubleshooting Tools (.mbx) that may be causing MapInfo Professional to crash when they autoload via Tools>Tool Manager, this is a method to prevent the possibly offending tool from loading: 

Use regedit to get to the registry and navigate here (example is for MapInfo Pro 12.5 - adjust accordingly for different versions of Pro):

Select the Tools folder and go to Edit>find and search for the offending Tool by name.
When found, look for the "autoload" key and change the value from 1 to 0 and exit the registry.

Now when Pro is launched, that tool will not Autoload.
