StartupProject – Sets a project to automatically load when Runtime is launched. To have a deployed project automatically load, enter the name (including path) of the deployment package. The files from the package are extracted to the DeploymentExtractDirectory (if the DeploymentSavetoDisk setting is True).
AllowRunWithNoPackage – Setting this key to True allows Runtime to run without a package. When set to True, Runtime will start with no notification, which means you will not see the message that tells you no packages are assigned.
I believe you have configured Runtime to connect to the Management Console (presumably not on purpose). During the installation you would have selected that option. You can disable connectivity to the server by editing the CommonConfig.xml file located in %ProgramData%\OpenSpan. The "Server" nodes have an attribute called "enabled". Make sure these are all set to false.
