Microsoft Enterprise Single Sign-On


Microsoft Enterprise Single Sign-On is a software program developed by Microsoft. The most common release is 6.0.4219.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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. 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 47 files and is usually about 12.93 MB (13,555,292 bytes). The installed file ComponentUpdater.dll 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 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 42% of users of Microsoft Enterprise Single Sign-On come from the United States, it is also popular in India and Germany.
