Mari takes a long time to start in my studio

Internet connection is required for most license types. Please refer to this help topic for more information

Mari Extension Pack will try to verify your license using a web based license server.

If your workstation does not have an active internet connection, Extension Pack will still try to connect to the License Server before timing out

after a while.

The Mari Startup will take as long  as it takes to either verify the license or have the connection timeout limit reached.

By using the Environment Variable


you are able to set the number of seconds it takes for the connection to timeout, therefore speeding up the Mari Startup.

A minimum of 1 second timeout is required. You won't be able to set the Timeout to 0.
