2014 network deployment missing ability to remove 'Password' option

In previous releases, in the network deployment, I could disable the 'Password Protection' feature for DWG files (that appears in Options dialog box). I cannot find where to disable that now. I do not want my users to be able to password protect a drawing. I also do not want to individually modify the 100 PCs that will be receiving AutoCAD.

 

This is AutoCAD MEP 2014 as part of the BDS Premium Suite.

 

Thanks,

Dustin

Hello,

 

You can build a deployment. From the Create Deployment>Configure deployment screen, expand the twisty to configure. Select the option 'custom'.  Remove the check from 'Drawing Encryption'. For more details please refer to the link:

I was interested in the post and you (Brad) beat me to it!!!  I have included some screen captures of the install and deployement process of disabling this feature via the Control Panel.
