Nero InCD-Reader

What is Nero InCD-Reader?

The main goal of Nero InCD Reader is to be able to read CDs created with InCD. This reading is basic and should not be foreign to lots of users. You just have to load the disc in question and select Nero InCD Reader 5 for the reading. The other option would be to load the disc from the software's interface.


During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up. 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 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 ncc.exe. The setup package generally installs about 7 files and is usually about 9.87 MB (10,347,911 bytes).
