Hi, welcome to TSF

Do you already have the full version Of C&C Generals installed? Expansion packs need the original game installed.

Expansion packs are addons for the original full game. Usually things like new maps, storylines, characters, etc.

I made the same mistake a while ago and the shop exchanged it for the original game, but wouldn't give a cash refund.

You mean illegally download a pirate copy of the game that could be infected and damage your system? I wouldn't advise it. See if the shop wll do an exchange.

Because they usually need a crack, and these can contain viruses and trojans. If the game is not from the retailer, you've no way of knowing what malicious code has been inserted into the files. It's safer to buy an original.

Sorry, we can't give any advice on p2p file sharing or illegal activities like cracks and pirate software, but to answer your question, malicious code is where the person cracking the software inserts lines of code that can spy on your activities, steal your personal details, destroy your data, turn your computer into a zombie for other file sharers, etc. It's not worth taking the risk for the price of a game, even if you scan the files.

Buy the original C&C Generals and install it, then install the expansion pack, and you'll be fine.

£2.40 from Amazon
