Loadout

Overview

Loadout is a program developed by Edge of Reality. 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 main program executable is Loadout.exe. The software installer includes 44 files and is usually about 4.56 MB (4,777,146 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 50% of users of Loadout come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and France.
