Cannot launch Moodle desktop when offline
 

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a solution to deliver learning material offline on PC (scorm or moodle activities).

I've tested the Moodle Desktop app in Windows 10. I'm not able to launch / start the app when the computer is offline. It simply doesn't start...

Can someone confirm the issue ?

Do you thing it can be fixed ?

I've tested the Moodle mobile app on an Android phone. It launches fine when offline. I wish the Desktop app could behave the same 

What do you think ?


Thanks a lot,

Phil

Hi,

I found out that Moodle Desktop starts, after a few seconds, if the computer is connected to a network, even if there is no internet connection.

When the computer has the wifi turned off or on flight mode, it doesn't start.

Any thoughts ?

Thank you smile

Hi,

this seems to be a bug sad

Have you tried on Linux or Mac?

We'll check if is a problem with the "Windows" container that somehow requires internet connection.

Hi Philippe,

I've been doing some tests and the app is starting fine in my Windows 10. I disconnected the ethernet connection and put the pc in flight mode, and I was still able to start and use the app. 

Can you check if the same happens in other Windows 10 devices (if you have access to any)?

Also, can you please download the "Windows 7 and 8 Installer" from here and check if it works for you in offline? This .exe is meant for Windows 7 and 8, but it should work in Windows 10 too. Please uninstall your installed version before running this one.

Kind regards,

Dani
