Can someone explain what “squirreltemp\update.exe” is?



Hi @Zyre,

I can say it’s safe. Squirrel is used for manage both installation and updating Brave on Windows.

Here’s a quick snippet from the brave/Squirrel.Windows GitHub Repo:

Squirrel is both a set of tools and a library, to completely manage both installation and updating your Desktop Windows application, written in either C# or any other language (i.e., Squirrel can manage native C++ applications).

Squirrel uses NuGet packages to create installation and update packages, which means that you probably already know most of what you need to create an installer.
