Nokia Software Updater

What is Nokia Software Updater?

Nokia Software Updater is a program designed to manage all installed Nokia programs on the user's PC and check for and update any new versions of the software if available. This service will run in the background when Windows starts and periodically check for updates.

Overview

The most used version is 3.0.655, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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 nsu_ui_client.exe. The software installer includes 200 files and is usually about 177.41 MB (186,025,381 bytes). DeviceUpdaterProcess.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
