VSO Downloader 4


VSO Downloader 4 is a software program developed by VSO Software. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background.

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 VsoDownloader.exe.
