Darkest Dungeon

Overview

Darkest Dungeon is a program developed by Red Hook Studios. 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 20771-jws_tex-Darkest Dungeon Trainer.exe. The software installer includes 50 files and is usually about 1.16 MB (1,218,214 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 10 as well as Windows 7 (SP1). While about 66% of users of Darkest Dungeon come from the United States, it is also popular in France and United Kingdom.
