CefSharp.BrowserSubprocess.exe 2 instance working (????)



Do you mean Power BI Desktop not launch?


Please try to stop Power BI Enterprise Gateway Windows service and run the Power BI Desktop as administrator.



yes, Power BI Desktop not launch after installation


I can't find  'Power BI Enterprise Gateway Windows service', I find similar 'ALG' 'Service Gateway al level application', but in state 'Interrupted'

and another similar 'PST service'(????????)

and now I see 3 instances of 'CefSharp.BrowserSubprocess.exe' working ......


(for today my patience is ended)

Frequent Visitor

there are many reports on issues with CefSharp.BrowserSubprocess. It seems to be linked to the use of any custom visuals. Memory leaks happening each time you switch pages that have custom visuals, until it consumes 50% of your memory and becomes unresponsive.

Would be great this issue gets fixed very soon
