In 11.7 the ability for a WebClient to start even if it cannot connect to the Apache Server was added. Thank you PSC development.
I am asking to enhance that to remove any delay if possible.
Today, this works great if the host machine where the Apache server resides is online and Apache is not running. The WebClient app will run with the copy of the <application name>.prowcapc it already has nearly immediately.
However, if the host machine where the Apache server resides cannot be reached you can see delays up to 20-25 seconds before the WebClient app start.
In a retail environment you must run offline which we now can but a delay like this will cause mass confusion. In our environment 75% of the time when the Apache Server is not available will be due to the actual host machine will be offline.
