GCM MetaTrader


GCM MetaTrader is a software program developed by MetaQuotes Software. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. 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 setup package generally installs about 8 files and is usually about 15.01 MB (15,737,439 bytes). The installed file liveupdate.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. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 83% of users of GCM MetaTrader come from Turkey, it is also popular in the United States and AZ.
