WEBfactory 2010 Applications Load Slowly

Abstract

Check out this article and learn how to find a solution when the WEBfactory 2010 applications are loaded too slow.

Description

Some of the WEBfactory 2010 applications need a longer time to start on machines with poor internet connection or restrictive policies. As the WEBfactory 2010 applications are signed with a valid certificate, the .NET Framework checks the validity of that signature when the applications start, which can cause delays when the internet connectivity is low.

Solution

The solution is to bypass the signature check by editing the configuration file of the WEBfactory 2010 applications that load slowly. Follow the next steps to edit the configuration file for the WEBfactory 2010 applications that start slowly and for which you want to disable the signature validation.

  1. Open the [ApplicationName].exe.config file from the application installation folder (by default C:\Program Files (x86)\WEBfactory 2010\[ApplicationName].

    [ApplicationName] is the name of the application for which you want to disable the signature verification.

  2. Inside the configuration file, search for the <generatePublisherEvidence> tag.

  3. If the tag exists, make sure to set its enabled attribute to false. For example:

    <configuration>
    	<configSections>
    		...
    	</configSections>
    	...
    	<runtime> 
            <generatePublisherEvidence enabled="false"/>
    	</runtime> 
    	...
    </configuration>
  4. If the tag does not exist, add it inside the configuration file.

    This tag must be always placed inside the <runtime> tag and after the <configSections> tag!

  5. Save the configuration file and restart the application.
