KNIME 3.2 Startup crash after installing KREST component

Dear All,

after installing the KREST I have issue to startup KNIME. Please find attached the Log file produced during the startup. The only way to make it starting is to add in the knime.ini the following line:

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath=<knime path>

Is it this the way to fix it or there is another way to fix the issue? 

Thank you in advance for your time and support!

Regards, Frank

Dear Frank,

I just forwarded this to our developers, who will take a look into the log file.

However, the KREST nodes are not going to be maintained further. We have built our own REST nodes, which are going to replace the KREST nodes.

Kind regards, Iris

The log file shows that startup takes more than 30 seconds and runs into a timeout. This is usually caused by bad virus scanners that massively slow down disk operations. You can increase this timeout even further by setting the value of -Dequinox.statechange.timeout in the knime.ini to a higher value. Alternatively you can disable your virus scanner or add an exception for the KNIME Analytics Platform.
