Running eOSDeviceScan.exe on any computer opens the ThemeChanger.exe window. Creating a new account, deleting ThemeChanger, and renaming eOSDeviceScan do nothing. This has been happening since the v4.034 update.

I'm not sure what the issue is but a few ideas you could try:

  1. Delete the eosDeviceScan.exe and re-acquire it from the entropy asset server: in the /bin folder
  2. See what happens in the hacknet command prompt that opens when you launch the game when you attempt to launch eosDeviceScan.exe:

  3. Start a new game - The developers acknolwedged this bug and created a patch for it. Older game saves will still have the bug but I'm not sure when you started the game/when the save was created:
