The setup package generally installs about 12 files and is usually about 65.37 MB (68,545,216 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 7 (SP1) and Windows 10.
