The CHILD_WAIT configuration variable lets you determine how long AcuConnect waits for a child runtime to start successfully. This variable is valid for Windows servers only. The default value (in milliseconds) is "50". When you set this variable to "0", AcuConnect does not wait at all. The maximum value is "32767", or approximately 32 seconds.
This variable helps you determine whether you have reached a Windows limit on the number of simultaneous child runtimes. See Connection Refused for more information about this Windows limitation and how to work around it.
