DIRECT! CP is a software program developed by Courion. The most common release is 8.00.005, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named CourClientSvr.exe. The setup package generally installs about 7 files and is usually about 512.12 KB (524,412 bytes).
