I am running on v4.3.0.30. When opening a spreadsheet with the OpenReadOnly() method, the BuiltInDocumentProperties is not being populated. However, when using the Open() method, it seems to work fine. Example code below:

// Using Sample.xls spreadsheet from Syncfusion DocumentProperties example
ExcelEngine engine = new ExcelEngine();
IApplication application = engine.Excel;
IWorkbook workbook = application.Workbooks.OpenReadOnly("Sample.xls");

// ApplicationName not set when using OpenReadOnly()
string application_name = workbook.BuiltInDocumentProperties.ApplicationName;

Help would be appreciated.
