Nero Express

What is Nero Express?

Nero Express is a simplified edition of Nero Burning ROM targeted at entry level users, is available with the Nero software suite. Although Nero Express is not as powerful as the full-featured Nero Burning ROM, it features a streamlined user interface, and offers a range of features than those offered by Windows. Nero Express is also integrated into Nero software suite, typically into OEM editions of this software which lack Nero Burning ROM.


The most common release is 9.6.16000, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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). When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named NeroExpress.exe. The setup package generally installs about 133 files and is usually about 205.41 MB (215,383,595 bytes).
