Overview

Destinations is a software program developed by Valve. 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 setup package generally installs about 75 files and is usually about 3.73 MB (3,907,265 bytes). The program uses the GLib GNOME library. 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 77% of users of Destinations come from the United States, it is also popular in Spain and Germany.
