Windows 2012 R2 & Sharepoint 2013 not displaying Web app

I've created a site and sometimes when I browse to one of my links the page does not display.  This can happen with Chrome, IE 11, and Firefox.  Is there something I need to change in order to make it appear consistently?

Did you use any variables?  If there is a variable that is not initialized properly it can cause intermittent errors, depending on the state of the variable when you enter the link.

Had you considered submitting your project to EE's Bugfinder?

SharePoint 2013 is not supported on Windows 2012 R2. This may be one reason why. SharePoint 2013 SP1 should be supported on R2.

Sorry for the confusion.  I am using Sharepoint 2013 SP1.  And there aren't any variables that are unable to resolve.

I'll take another stab at this since we're still waiting.  This fellow had similar problems and I think if his solution doesn't fix your problem, it will still facilitate further discussion here.  Using Powershell he found his zone set to internal and when set to external his stuff appeared.  Please also check out the Microsoft TechNet link for their discussion of Configuring Web Apps for SharePoint 2013.  Toward the bottom under "See Also" are links for binding and zone that are worth checking out.

Low memory conditions can cause failures as described in this TechNet article, under "Before you configure SharePoint 2013..." and there is a link there for system requirements.

And it also lead to other questions like is it only one user account, only one server, etc, and is your link that is intermittent intended to launch a web app using a data file, or just launch the web app without a file?  Don't even know if you can do this since I cannot run SharePoint.  There is a security issue that limits file size to 10 MB, and I wondered if launching web app with less than 10 works and more than 10 fails.

This was the resolution.

Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
Expand Services and Applications, and then click Services.
In the right pane, double-click WebClient.
Click the General tab.
Do one of the following:
To configure the WebClient service to start automatically when the computer starts, click Automatic.
To configure the WebClient service so that you start the service manually, click Manual, click Apply, and then click Start.

Note When you configure a service to use a manual startup type, the service does not start automatically when the computer starts.
Click OK.
