Launching MetaDefender Client

When installed, the Client will run as a persistent service.
Access to the Client is available via the system tray.
Left-clicking the system tray icon will bring up the Client UI.

Right-clicking the system tray icon provides multiple options:

Restarting the "MDClient" service or exiting the Client will allow for the switch to take effect.
If a desired language is not supported, please contact OPSWAT to request support.
