When running Liquid XML Studio it takes a long time to startup (in the order of 20 seconds)
The problem is espesially noticable when no internet connection is availble on the computer.
The Liquid XML Studio executables are signed, which means you can be confident that they have come from Liquid Technologies and that they have not been tampered with. The Windows operating system will check the signature then the application starts up.
In order to perform this check it must check the root certificate authority and check all the certificate revocation lists. This is normally pretty fast if the computer is connected to the internet, but can take up to a minute to timeout when no internet connection is availble.

Authenticode verification adds to
the startup time. Authenticode-signed assemblies have to be verified
with the certification authority (CA). This verification can be time
consuming, because it can require connecting to the network several
times to download current certificate revocation lists. It also makes
sure that there is a full chain of valid certificates on the path to a
trusted root. This can translate to several seconds of delay while the
assembly is being loaded.
installing the CA certificate on the client computer, or avoid using
Authenticode when it is possible. If you know that your application does
not need the publisher evidence, you do not have to pay the cost of

The checking of the revocation list can be disabled in internet explorer.
