Linux version: Ubuntu 19.10

Version de POL: 4.3.3, 4.3.4

Wine version used in testing: 5.7

Background search:

Searching the Internet, I found a similarity in the bug description here.

The solution was: "it seems to be a bug on PlayOnLinux, version 4.2.10 doesn't have the bug", on Nov 22, 2017.

It seems that this bug may be back in POL version 4.3.3 and version 4.3.4.

Version 4.3.2 launches the same program immediately without Internet connection, all things the same.


If an Internet connection is present, POL 4.3.3 and 4.3.4 launches the program immediately and a window is displayed in a couple of seconds.

If there is NO INTERNET, POL 4.3.3 and 4.3.4 doesn't launch the program until after 5-8 minutes, if ever.

Problem isolation:

POL 4.3.2 does not have this issue.

POL < 4.2.10 had a similar issue. Problem was solved in POL 4.2.10.

POL 4.3.3 and POL 4.3.4 have this issue again.

It doesn't seem to depend on the program itself being launched, which is why I suspect the issue is primarily in POL 4.3.3 and POL 4.3.4, as it was prior to POL 4.2.10.

Possible reason:

It could be that a program is searching for an Internet connection on program start, causing a delay in opening the program and displaying the program window of about 5-8 minutes.
