    INFO: Why is there a delay in the availability of the Start Menu in Microsoft Windows 10 version 1703 build 15063 and higher?

     

     

    Answer

     

    Symptoms

    Consider the following scenario:

     

    • A Microsoft Windows 10 version 1703 build 15063 or higher Operating System is used.
    • Ivanti Workspace Control 10.2.500.1 or higher is installed.

     

    In this scenario, a user could notice a delay of 7 seconds before the Microsoft Windows Start Menu becomes available to the user.

    This issue is not noticed on Microsoft Windows 10 version 1607 build 14393 machines.

     

    Cause

    Since Microsoft Windows version 1703 build 15063, Microsoft has made several enhancements to the Microsoft Windows Start Menu.

    These enhancements require Ivanti Workspace Control to wait for 7 seconds before it can interact with the Microsoft Windows Start Menu causing this delay.

     

    This is the intended behavior of Ivanti Workspace Control.
