Nero 2014 Content Pack

Overview

Nero 2014 Content Pack is a software program developed by Nero AG. The most common release is 15.0.00200, 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 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 Nero 2014 Platinum Activator v1.0.exe. The setup package generally installs about 181 files and is usually about 999.57 KB (1,023,561 bytes). The installed file KwikMediaUpdater.exe 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 8. While about 28% of users of Nero 2014 Content Pack come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
