Mirror's Edge

What is Mirror's Edge?  (from DICE)

Mirror’s Edge is a brave new IP set in a not too distant future where all information is heavily monitored. The removal of freedom of speech calls for agile couriers called Runners, who transport sensitive data away from prying eyes. In this dystopian setting, you play the Runner Faith – one of the most iconic charact...  Read more


Mirror's Edge is a software program developed by DICE. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 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 GDFBinary.dll. The setup package generally installs about 66 files and is usually about 7.75 MB (8,126,464 bytes). 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 54% of users of Mirror's Edge come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Canada.
