Dead by Daylight


Dead by Daylight is a software program developed by Behaviour Digital. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 primary executable is named DeadByDaylight.exe. The setup package generally installs about 78 files and is usually about 7.56 MB (7,928,043 bytes). The software utilizes the Nokia Qt cross-platforms C++ framework. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 69% of users of Dead by Daylight come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
