The trace rule 'frmTaskbar_Load; Waiting for taskbar' is shown in a tracelog after upgrading to Ivanti Workspace Control 10.2.0.0 or higher

Version 1

    Problem

    Consider the following scenario:

     

    • An upgrade to Ivanti Workspace Control 10.2.0.0 or later is done.
    • A trace log is made of the logon of a user session.

     

    In this scenario, the following trace rule is displayed 400 times.

     

    frmTaskbar_Load; Waiting for taskbar; lngCount = 1
    (...)
    frmTaskbar_Load; Waiting for taskbar; lngCount = 400
    

     

    These trace rules were not available in older versions.

     

     

    Cause

    Ivanti Workspace Control is waiting for explorer.exe to make the taskbar available.

    In Ivanti Workspace Control 10.2.0.0 this extra trace rule was added to get more insight into the delay.

     

     

    Solution

    This is by design of Ivanti Workspace Control.

     

    Note

    The delay itself can have multiple causes, which are dependent on configuration. One example is the redirection of AppData.
