Overview

Race The Sun is a program developed by Flippfly. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. 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 software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is RaceTheSun.exe. The software installer includes 69 files and is usually about 103.12 MB (108,130,085 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 10 as well as Windows 7 (SP1). While about 55% of users of Race The Sun come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Canada.
