SopCast 4.0.0


SopCast 4.0.0 is a software program developed by www.sopcast.com. 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 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 sopcast.exe. The setup package generally installs about 9 files and is usually about 19.56 MB (20,514,096 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 26% of users of SopCast come from Italy, it is also popular in the United States and Spain.
