SteamVR Performance Test


SteamVR Performance Test is a software program developed by Valve. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. 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 setup package generally installs about 81 files and is usually about 4.61 MB (4,837,764 bytes). The program uses the GLib GNOME library. 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 67% of users of SteamVR Performance Test come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Germany.
