The software installer includes 13 files and is usually about 1.13 MB (1,189,571 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 83% of users of Select-N-Go come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and United Kingdom.
