  • Bug Foxit Proxy Server causing max CPU workload.

    Troubleshooting a very sluggish workstation, I found that the program FoxitProxyServer_Socket_RD.exe was utilizing all the CPU (97% CPU usage). I performed an uninstallation and reinstallation of Foxit Reader and this seems to have cleared up the issue.
    I just wanted to make you aware of this issue.

        I have also come across this issue since installing last week. But this is on a terminal server so there were multiple copies of the process, 1 for each user, which maxed out the CPU.

        Windows Server 2008 R2.
        PhantomPDF version

          I just installed Foxit Reader on a terminal server last night and this is happening to me now too. FoxitProxyServer_Socket_RD.exe using about 50% CPU. This is on Server 2016. There is one of these processes running under each user account. As soon as I end one, the process from another user picks up.

          What is this process and what are the side effects of ending it?
