What is irsetup.exe?

The genuine irsetup.exe file is a software component of Setup Factory by Indigo Rose Software Design Corp..
"Irsetup.exe" is a tool used by Indigo Rose Software Design in their Setup Factory product which software developers use to create single-process "setup.exe" files to install their products on end users' computers. Executing the "setup.exe" causes extraction of "irsetup.exe" to a temporary file, which then runs and implements the developer's setup instructions. It is supposed to remove itself either when installation finishes or at the next system boot-up. If it remains in the temporary file it is no longer being used and can be deleted. Since 2001 some anti-malware programs have identified "irsetup.exe" as adware which Indigo Rose and its customers have protested. Indigo Rose is a privately-held company in Winnipeg, MB, Canada, with no more than ten employees, producing software development tools since 1991. Over 44K organizations use their various tools to develop and deploy software and their Andromo app maker is the one most used to make Android apps.

Best practices for resolving irsetup issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with irsetup. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem.
