MySQL Server 5.6 is a software program developed by Oracle. The most common release is 5.6.10, 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 program adds a toolbar to Microsoft Internet Explorer. The primary executable is named ewpexdl.exe. The setup package generally installs about 63 files and is usually about 604.31 KB (618,818 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 31% of users of MySQL Server come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
