Tropico 4

Overview

Tropico 4 is a software program developed by Haemimont Games. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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 primary executable is named Tropico4.exe. The setup package generally installs about 44 files and is usually about 25.33 MB (26,555,374 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 53% of users of Tropico 4 come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Germany.
