Overview

The software installer includes 70 files and is usually about 31.75 MB (33,294,083 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 69% of users of Command Center come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and United Kingdom.
