FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn

What is FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn?

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game and features many of the trappings of the genre. Players create and customize their characters for use in the game, including name, race, gender, facial features, and starting class. Unlike in the original release, players may only choose to be a Disciple of War or Magic as a starting class—Disciples of the Hand and Land are initially unavailable.

Overview

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 primary executable is named ffxiv-arr-bench-character.exe. The setup package generally installs about 129 files and is usually about 5.4 MB (5,667,004 bytes). The installed file ffxivupdater.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
