Hi Michael,

as this is related to the MWE launcher I added the emft newsgroup.

the workspace refresh is hard coded so you cannot deactivate it in the
launch configuration. What you could do is to start the workflow using a
plain Java Application launch configuration.

All you need to do is start 'org.eclipse.emf.mwe.core.WorkflowRunner'
and pass the workflow file as the first parameter.

Note, that usually a refresh is only resources consuming if many files
are out of sync, i.e. have changed externally. You could try to minimize
this by avoid overwriting existing files if nothing has changed.
