How to force Web AppBuilder to use HTTP (not HTTPS)?

I have an out-of-the-box instance of ArcGIS Web AppBuilder developer edition - the startup.bat file is unmodified and includes the lines:


REM open the url in browser
START http://%FQDN%:%port%/%wabVirtualPath%

However, when I start a new session on my PC, it runs as https://localhost:3344/webappbuilder - even if I forcibly change the URL to http:// it immediately reverts to https://


This is causing a problem when I try to access ArcGIS Server REST endpoints which are not served via https.

For example, when trying to add a sample layer via the Local Layer Widget I get an error message about insecure content:


https problem

I'm working in a corporate environment and don't have the option of serving my local layers via HTTPS, so I'd like to know whether it's possible to force Web AppBuilder to run on HTTP.
