What is Roxio Express Labeler?

The Roxio Express Labeler provides printing on CD/DVDs and CD/DVD labels.


Roxio Express Labeler is a software program developed by Roxio. The most common release is 2.1.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. 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. 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 primary executable is named stax.exe. The setup package generally installs about 6 files and is usually about 12.24 MB (12,831,232 bytes). The installed file driverupdate.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows Vista (SP2) and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 79% of users of Roxio Express Labeler come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Canada.
