Digidesign Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4


Digidesign Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 is a software program developed by Avid Technology. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 67 files and is usually about 111.64 MB (117,060,842 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 7. While about 31% of users of Digidesign Pro Tools M-Powered come from the United States, it is also popular in Argentina and Brazil.
