The lcd.exe process is the primary background process for the TotalChrom Chromatography Data Systems (CDS) software. TotalChrom CDS is one of the best expandable data systems software that has the ability to streamline a series of operations such as processing, acquiring, approving, reviewing, and reporting data. With its scalable architecture, it is designed to quickly and securely manage your chromatography data in a regulated as well as non-regulated environment.
The term LCD is an acronym for Local Configuration Daemon. It runs as a system service when installed on Windows NT/2000/XP platforms. The lcd.exe file has three main responsibilities:
Runs and manages all TotalChrom processes that are running on the workstation such as LMS, Acquire, AQM, CAM, and MCS.
Maintains the connection with the License Manager; and
Retrieves the location of all configuration file directories allowing it to make those directory locations available to all other running processes in the workstations.
The EXE lcd.exe is represented by a tray icon in the system taskbar and is used to automatically install, start, stop, remove, or reinstall the LCD service. However, if the icon is used to stop LCD, the service must be restarted manually before any interactive processes are run.
The lcd.exe process is provided with two startup modes, which depend on which operating system it, will be used on your workstation.
The LCD service is created interactively when Windows 98 starts and remain running until the system is stopped.
The LCD service is started by a Windows XP/2000/NT service when the machine is booted and is run under the Windows operating system account, which should not own user data files. This is the reason why the LCD service needs to run the other processes with a separate Windows user account.
In order to run the lcd.exe process as another user, it must be able to log on as that user, thus the TotalChrom Process Account name and password are required when the software is installed. When the lcd.exe application runs, it retrieves the encrypted account/password combination from the registry, decrypts it, and uses the data to start each of the processes. In this manner, LCD runs as a system service while all other processes are run under the TotalChrom Process Account.
