    Windows Defender Notification on use of new Extract

    James Standen

      We are using the 10.5 extract assemblies to create Hyper extracts, and it appears to cause a  requirement for a new firewall rule.  The user is presented with "Windows Defender Firewall has blocked some features of this app"

       

      Why is this happening?  Is the assembly communicating with Tableau for some reason?  If so why and what information?

       

      We are using the assemblies to generate extracts locally to the machine- we are not using any functionality that would require network access that we are aware of.

       

      In addition, if we do not our our installed application elevated (run as administrator in Windows 10) we get an error "Specified argument was out of the range of valid values. Parameter name: Unrecognized Tab_result:40200

       

      The result 40200 is what is being returned - what level of access is needed by the extract API
