TrackMania² Canyon


TrackMania² Canyon is a program developed by Nadeo. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. 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 main program executable is ManiaPlanet.exe. The software installer includes 64 files and is usually about 1.17 GB (1,256,483,376 bytes). Updater.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released. In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 10. While about 32% of users of TrackMania² Canyon come from the United States, it is also popular in France and Germany.
