Painter 2022 purchased version now asking for login at startup

I have owned Painter 2022 for over a year, not a subscription.  Now, when I start it up in Windows 10 I get this panel wanting me to login.  If I continue without logging in, it puts up another panel insisting that I log in.  If I cancel that, Painter starts up as usual.  It bothers me that Corel can just introduce this kind of unnecessary annoyance whenever it wants.

I have a Corel account but there is no need for me to sign in to run Painter 2022.

How do I stop this now, and keep it from happening in the future?
