Issue Details

Offline Client and POS Printer Server Application do not run from the Start Menu on Java versions later than Java 8u162

Later versions of Java 8 introduced a bug which will fail to launch applications from the Start Menu of your workstation.

Note: Java 9 and higher are not yet supported.

Identified: May 2018

Workaround: Install Java SE Runtime Environment 8u162 or earlier to run the Offline Client and POS printer application from your workstation's Start Menu. If you must run a later version of Java 8, you can still run the applications by executing the JNLP files directly (i.e. wms-offline-circulation.jnlp and wms-posprinter-server.jnlp).
