IBM Lotus Symphony

What is IBM Lotus Symphony?

IBM Lotus Symphony was a suite of applications for creating, editing, and sharing text, spreadsheet, presentations and other documents, browsing the world wide web, and is currently distributed as freeware. IBM Lotus Symphony was discontinued in January 2012 with the final release of version 3.0.1. The source code was sponsored to the Apache Software Foundation to get merged to OpenOffice.org.


IBM Lotus Symphony is a software program developed by IBM. The most common release is 3.01.12011, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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 symphony.exe. The setup package generally installs about 153 files and is usually about 873.2 KB (894,156 bytes). The installed file update.dll 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 XP. While about 63% of users of IBM Lotus Symphony come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
