Seven days ago the issue was very repeatable. I just tried creating the shortcut again and for whatever reason this problem just disappeared…maybe all I needed was a reboot. The IP address of the server also changed between working and not working status, thus I needed to manually change it in the vision client launcher. Perhaps this change fixed the issue. Quite puzzling, but I’m happy the issue just went away.
I answered your questions just in case the problems occurs again:
I have only created the shortcut from the Vision Client Launcher. Perhaps I should try a different method if there is a better one?
This occurred immediately after an upgrade from 8.0.2 to 8.0.3. This is also a development project, many changes occur every day.
No issue in the designer launcher log file. The visionclientlauncher log file has a few errors, but they occurred right after the upgrade and I believe they all were related to using the old 8.0.2 shortcut (which did not work).
