Microsoft Web Hosting Framework


Microsoft Web Hosting Framework is a software program developed by Microsoft. The most common release is 7.5.10274.0, 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. 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 setup package generally installs about 54 files and is usually about 4.34 MB (4,554,752 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of those who have this installed, most are running it on Windows 8. While about 82% of users of Microsoft Web Hosting Framework come from the United States, it is also popular in Switzerland and United Kingdom.
