XAML Spy is a software program developed by First Floor Software. The most common release is 2.0.5, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version.

Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 48 files and is usually about 4.77 MB (4,997,120 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8.
