Command & Conquer Generals

What is Command & Conquer Generals?

Command & Conquer: Generals is a real-time strategy (RTS) video game and the seventh installment in the Command & Conquer series. In the game, the player can choose from three different factions: the United States, China and the Global Liberation Army (GLA). Command and Conquer Generals operates like most other real-time strategy games, in that the player must construct a base, acquire resources, build various combat and support units, and defeat opponents. Various unit types can be constructed, ranging from infantry to vehicles and air units. The player may control the United States of America, the People's Republic of China, or the Global Liberation Army, and each side has its unique characteristics and abilities.


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 SandboxieInstall64.exe. The software installer includes 14 files and is usually about 1.55 MB (1,626,589 bytes). fpupdate.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
