FreeStyle Libre


FreeStyle Libre is a software program developed by Abbott Labs. 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 26 files and is usually about 56.16 MB (58,888,214 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 35% of users of FreeStyle Libre come from Germany, it is also popular in the United States and Italy.
