What is Nero 8 Micro?

Nero 8 Micro is a subset of the full Nero 8 Suite and includes only a few components of the full version such as CD/DVD processing utilities which too are striped down subsets of the full package. The Micro version includes the following components: Nero Burning Rom, Nero Express, and Nero Toolkit which also includes BurnRights, DriveSpeed and DiscSpeed). The differences between Nero 8 Lite and Nero 8 Micro are that Micro does not contain the CoverDesigner and WaveEditor while Nero 8 Lite does.


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 primary executable is named nero.exe. The setup package generally installs about 88 files and is usually about 18.04 MB (18,913,043 bytes).
