I just upgraded to 8.0.3 a few days ago. Now I have noticed that if I launch my client from the shortcut I get a Title Bar and Taskbar. Launching from the Vision Client Launcher behaves normally (no title bar and taskbar).
Is this a bug? Something I need to adjust in the shortcut directory?
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).
I appreciate you responding with the current status of this issue. The changing of the IP address likely has something to do with it. The shortcut that is created is essentially creating an alias to the definition stored in the Designer/Client Launchers. While it isn’t clear to me why the client partially loaded, it is something I will attempt to duplicate. It could be something with the cache allowing you to get into a state that shouldn’t be allowed.
This is happening on 100% of the clients I have set up this week. I now understand that the shortcut is launching the app in window mode instead of full screen mode, even though the shortcut configuration displays full screen mode.
To fix the issue I configure the shortcut for window mode, save, then revert the configuration to full screen mode and save again.
I hope this helps. If someone lets me know where the file that saves the shortcut configuration on the client is located I can do a better job of documenting next week.
