I really like the floatrow package, but when its code is not required I expect that everything works as normal, however the correct code fails to compile once floatrow is loaded.

What I am talking about are simple parallel figures placed in minipages:

\documentclass[paper=a4, fontsize=11pt]{scrartcl}

    \caption{A figure}\label{fig:figures:2}
    \caption{Another figure}\label{fig:figures:3}

Comment out floatrow and it compiles correctly.

Any possible solution to get it working with floatrow loaded but without any floatrow commands?

You could resort to using floatrow for parallel figures. After all consistency is a good practice (if you place figures with floatrow at some place in a document it would be consistent to make any other placement with floatrow). – N.N. Nov 2 '11 at 10:35

I found out that one needs to restore the normal LaTeX behaviour, which is introduced by adding \RawFloats at the beginning of the figure environment.

...and if you use it as \csname RawFloats\endcsname the code will even compile without floatrow package. – Axel Sommerfeldt Nov 2 '11 at 11:09
