Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight

What is Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight?

Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight is a real-time tactics video game and the latest installment of the popular Command & Conquer franchise. Command & Conquer 4 is the first game in the series to implement a form of digital rights management (DRM) that requires constant Internet access; this type of restrictive DRM is fairly new and targets the used games market as well as ensuring that households must buy a copy per person.

Overview

Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is CNC4.exe. The software installer includes 37 files and is usually about 6.04 MB (6,329,350 bytes).
