Command & Conquer 3

What is Command & Conquer 3?

Command & Conquer 3 is a real-time strategy video game franchise, first developed by Westwood Studios. The Command & Conquer games belong to the real-time strategy genre, with the exception of the first person shooter Command & Conquer: Renegade. A staple of the series is the parallel campaigns of various different factions to one central storyline. Games in the series also offered multiplayer game options, via LAN and modem connection. All games in the series have also offered online play.


The most common release is 1.00.0000, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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 CNC3.exe. The setup package generally installs about 37 files and is usually about 11.71 MB (12,283,571 bytes).
