Command & Conquer 1 Gold - 1.06 patch
Conceived during the development of Dune II, this instant classic was highly anticipated. With reason! Everything you liked in Dune II is in this game, and lots, lots more! You fight for world domination with either the 'good' Global Defense Initiative or the 'bad' Brotherhood of NOD. Your only source of income is Tiberium. Well, you know the game. Released as freeware in 2010, the community has patched the game to play on 64 bits Windows systems.
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Updated: Recently (12 August 2009) I installed from TFD, Generals Zero hour for some old good fights after i saw in you tube the Generals Trailer 1 at E3 that made me wanna revisit that game.Now i am running Windows 7 x64 and after installation the program didnt run.so here is what you. The Gold Edition (basically, hi-res Windows port) of Command & Conquer 1 was released as freeware by Electronic Arts, to celebrate the 12th anniversary of the Command & Conquer franchise. This installer gives you the full game, with all game music, playable without CDs, and upgraded with the fan-made 1.06c patch. The new features added by this.
- Run the installer file and install the game
- If you want the videos too, download the English videos here. Also available in French and German.
As an alternative, you can also play Command & Conquer with the OpenRA source port.
The patched game has some graphical issues concerning missions that are smaller than the game resolution, typically the first 2 missions. You're still able to play the game though. Also, when playing in any resolution higher than 640x400, you can't place buildings with a placement height of only one cell on the lowest row of cells on the map.
Windows 10 issues
First, make sure you have DirectX 9 and DirectPlay installed. When running on a 64 bits version of Windows 10, the game could generate an error like Instruction at 000003cd referenced memory at 000003cd and refuses to shut down properly. Shortly after, you lose control over the mouse, so you'll have to find a way to the Task Manager with short keys and end the task manually. Here's how to do that:
