DVBViewer Pro is a program developed by CM&V. The most used version is 5.1, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. 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 main program executable is dvbviewer.exe. The software installer includes 91 files and is usually about 22.59 MB (23,687,800 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 57% of users of DVBViewer Pro come from Germany, it is also popular in Egypt and Finland.
