We have an Excel VSTO addin that uses EO for the browser. We are using EOWP.exe

EO Total 2020
Product version 20.2.63.0

When our worker process starts, we do the following:
directory = Path.Combine(directory, "EOWP", typeof(EO.WebBrowser.Runtime).Assembly.GetAssemblyVersionString());
Directory.CreateDirectory(directory);
var path = Path.Combine(directory, "eowp.exe");
LoggingHelper.LogInfoMessage($"Configure use of EOWP at {path}");
EO.Base.Runtime.InitWorkerProcessExecutable(path);

We have one client that is reporting that they are seeing the Excel process downloading EOWP from a public IP. I'm still working on getting details from the client to confirm that, but we don't see any process being downloaded. The documentation also states the exe is created not downloaded. Has anyone else experienced this?

thanks

Hi,

This does not make sense. We do not host eowp.exe publicly anywhere at all and there is no code in our library that would download the exe file from anywhere. So you may want to doublecheck with the customer on exactly what he/she saw.

Thanks!

Thank you for the confirmation. We haven't been able to detect any of this from our end either. Contacting the customer now.
