cef sub process

I am curious to know when does the cef sub process (located in the folder C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS\cef) get loaded into Solidworks 2020. The specific exe is called swCefSubProc.exe:



I personally don't see this process loaded into memory when Solidworks 2020 is started, but other users do see this. So, I am wondering if there is a feature or another option that needs to be set that uses this process and causes the swCefSubProc.exe to load.


The reason I'm asking is that we have a plugin app that also uses Cef, this plugin fails to load only if swCefSubProc is also loaded (I'm guessing because of incompatible cef versions). I'd like to troubleshoot/fix this problem, but so far don't have a reproducible workflow because the swCefSubProc.exe does not load when I start Solidworks. So, I'd like to load this process upon start of Solidworks, so if you could please tell me how to do this, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
