TortoiseHg 2.6.2 x64


TortoiseHg 2.6.2 x64 is a software program developed by Steve Borho and others. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named thg.exe. The setup package generally installs about 34 files and is usually about 83.03 MB (87,061,534 bytes). The program is built using the Nokia Qt cross-platforms native C++ framework. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 59% of users of TortoiseHg x64 come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and Finland.
