    I’m testing Xceed.SmartUI . I’ve created a new project in vb.net and added a new empty form.
    In this form I added :

    Imports Xceed.SmartUI
    Imports Xceed.SmartUI.Controls.ExplorerTaskPane
    Imports Xceed.SmartUI.UIStyle

    Public Class Form1
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

    Public Sub New()
    MyBase.New()
    Xceed.SmartUI.Licenser.LicenseKey = “SAMPLE-APPLICATION-KEY”
    ‘This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
    InitializeComponent()
    ‘Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call
    End Sub

    No other code is in the program
    When I started the program it tried to access the network !!!
    It tries to reach site 64.94.110.11:80

    When I’m commenting out the line with the license key, no access to the network occurred.

    Does your software components include spy ware ????
    Where can I find detailed information if and when your components are accessing the network
    to which IPs are they connection ?
    Which data are transmitted ?

    I will never include spy ware software components to software which I sell to my clients!
    Has anybody the same experience ??

    I don’t think it’s spyware. It might be part of the .NET framework.
    You can use your browser to go to that site, and you’ll just see a list of files you can download. The files seem to be certificates or something like that.

    If you do a reverse DNS lookup, you’ll find out that the IP-address is connected to the website http://crl.verisign.com
    Googling for that URL, I found an article ‘<b>Why is my computer trying to contact crl.verisign.net?</b>’: http://www.dslreports.com/faq/7998
