Ultima 8


Ultima 8 is a software program developed by Electronic Arts. 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 dosbox.exe. The setup package generally installs about 34 files and is usually about 81.27 MB (85,216,994 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 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 59% of users of Ultima 8 come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
