S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat


S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat is a software program developed by GSC Game World.

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 Stalker-COP.exe. The setup package generally installs about 55 files and is usually about 5.1 MB (5,348,989 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10.
