Hercules DJ USB Audio Drivers


Hercules DJ USB Audio Drivers is a software program developed by Hercules. 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 primary executable is named HDJSeries2CPL.exe. The setup package generally installs about 13 files and is usually about 11.38 MB (11,936,725 bytes). The installed file HDJSeries2Updater.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1).
