The most common release is, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. 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). When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named TrueSuiteFMA.exe. The setup package generally installs about 96 files and is usually about 9.64 MB (10,109,765 bytes). The installed file TrueSuite.AutoSoftwareUpdate.dll 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.
