Hi ttus here is my fix

1. Create "RappaTools3Closing.ms" in 3ds max startup folder (C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\{3dsmax version}\ENU\scripts\startup)
2. put this line in the ms file 
    try DestroyDialog ::RappaTools3UI Catch()
3. Save

In next launch, you will not see the UI.
