How do you suppress popup boxes from the command line?

I am calling Image Generator.exe from the command line.
When using Symbology 2 (CODE128), I am getting the popup box "NOTE: The Use Check Digit Setting has no effect for Code 128 because Code 128 requires a MOD 103 check digit that cannot usually be entered manually."

Is there a way to suppress this message from the command prompt? My application will be generating barcodes automatically, and there will not be a user who can press the "OK" button on the popup.

Command line:
"C:IDAImage Generator.exe" Loadvalues+C:IDAlinear_setup.xml+42084056+C:IDAoutput.bmp

Contents of the XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no"?>

<ApplyTilde>False</ApplyTilde>

Code 128 will always produce a MOD103 check digit. Therefore, enabling or disabling the Use Check Digit will have not affect. Setting UseCheckDigit to True will work sometimes. If you do not have any other symbologies to encode, removing the options should also work.

I am getting the pop up box while using both True and False.

I was able to get around the problem by removing the tag <UseCheckDigit> from the xml file.

Based on the Note in the pop up box, will Image Generator.exe always return a 128 barcode without the check digit?

In the XML fiie, set UseCheckDigit to True it should prevent the check digit pop up warning.
