mirina
programma "invisibile"
Explanation:
Qui "soft" sta per "software". Questo programma software, di tipo "invisibile", funziona in background, senza messaggi all'utente, e non ha bisogno di interventi da parte dell'operatore.
Vedi questa spiegazione:
Most install or setup programs display some sort of message or window on the screen and then require the user to click buttons and answer questions before the program will continue.
An unattended program will run with no user action required. Once the program has been started it may display messages on the screen but it will run to completion and then exit. The program must be able to handle any errors without user intervention. An unattended program will never stop and wait for user input.
A silent program is similar to an unattended program but it will not have any messages or windows that display on the screen. The user may not even know that the program has been running in the background. NT services are usually silent. If they have any messages to display they are usually sent to a log file.
