We are running EO Web Browser in a WPF .Net application that is part of a larger automation process.

We are facing the intermittent scenario that when the application exits (Environment.Exit), the process is still remaining in task manager and does not get killed off. This then prevents the outer process from continuing.

Has anybody else found that there are scenarios where EO WebEngine/Webview prevents the application it is running in from exiting properly?

Please check whether you are running the latest version. In the latest version child process created by EO controls will automatically exit after 5 seconds automatically if the process is orphaned for any reason (for example, the host application was killed, during a normal application shutdown the host application would notify the child process to exit cleanly immediately). Our up coming 2019 release has also improved this further by subscribing to Windows shutdown/log off events and exit right away without the 5 seconds delay. So if you prefer, you can also wait until the 2019 release is out and give that a try and see if it resolves the issue for you.
