Far Cry 3


Far Cry 3 is a software program developed by Ubisoft. 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 FarCry3_mp_dlc (3).exe. The setup package generally installs about 127 files and is usually about 12.52 MB (13,124,472 bytes). The installed file FC3Updater.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 53% of users of Far Cry 3 come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Germany.
