Visual Site Designer


Visual Site Designer is a software program developed by CoffeeCup Software. The most common release is 7.0.82, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. 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. 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 Coffee.exe. The setup package generally installs about 154 files and is usually about 21.23 MB (22,258,688 bytes). 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 76% of users of Visual Site Designer come from the United States, it is also popular in Australia and United Kingdom.
