HP Remote Graphics Sender

Overview

HP Remote Graphics Sender is a software program developed by Hewlett-Packard. The most common release is 5.2.6, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. 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 31 files and is usually about 50.13 MB (52,560,539 bytes). The program is built using the Nokia Qt cross-platforms native C++ framework. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows XP and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 50% of users of HP Remote Graphics Sender come from the United States, it is also popular in France and Estonia.
