EPSON AcuLaser CX17 is a software program developed by EPSON. The most common release is 1.026.00, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

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 setup package generally installs about 23 files and is usually about 38.76 MB (40,640,741 bytes).
