X3: Terran Conflict


X3: Terran Conflict is a software program developed by Egosoft. It adds registry entry for the current user which will allow the program to automatically start each time it is rebooted. 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 X3TC.exe. The setup package generally installs about 50 files and is usually about 955.75 KB (978,685 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 51% of users of X3: Terran Conflict come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
