Keyman Support | Keyman starts very slowly (especially on Windows Server 2003)
### **NOTE**: This archived documentation has not been updated recently and may contain information that is no longer relevant
To ensure that Keyman and Keyman Developer have not become corrupted, an integrity check is executed
each time either application is started. Part of this check involves verifying a digital signature,
or certificate, using the standard Internet certificate validation process. Certain certificate checking
options require an on-line test of certificate validity with a certificate authority, which requires
an open internet connection and makes starting take a long time. This option is enabled by default
on Windows Server 2003, and may be enabled in some situations with other versions of Windows.
Recommended solution: Upgrade to version 18.104.22.168 or later.
Note: This behaviour has changed since 22.214.171.124. Keyman and Keyman Developer no longer verify
certificate revocation, so this behaviour no longer occurs.
Alternative solution: Go to Control Panel->Internet Properties->Advanced and disable "Check for
publisher's certificate revocation" and "Check for server certificate revocation" by clearing the two
check boxes indicated in the following image.
