Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Notification Services


Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Notification Services is a software program developed by Microsoft. The most common release is 9.2.4035.00, 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. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 128 files and is usually about 83.47 MB (87,521,923 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 68% of users of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Notification Services come from the United States, it is also popular in France and Germany.
