Dualpix HD


Dualpix HD is a program developed by HerculesHercules. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The software installer includes 54 files and is usually about 33.61 MB (35,246,349 bytes). libupdate.dll is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.

While about 68% of users of Dualpix HD come from France, it is also popular in Germany and the United States.
