It just doesn't work, I've downloaded it countless times and it pops up as an artimes Trojan horse by my antivirus. Please help

Your antivirus is paranoid. Disable it while patching (preferrably, remove it completely and get a proper one). There is nothing unsafe within the patch, the only problem is that Symantec gives a false flag on the TD Funpark missions' special executable, which have since been integrated into the game's expansion mission list.

Please follow this guide on how to properly patch TFD, as the 1.03 patch contents are admittedly largely outdated.

"cannot install this program, a required file is missing."

"You will have to run this utility again to completely install the first decade 1.03 Revision4.

I got Red alert, and yuris revenge to work. I'm really only interested in generals, zero hour, and RA2. How do I get those to work?

The same guide applies, you just skip the parts telling you how to install/patch TS etc. So that leaves installing RA2/YR/Gen/ZH, installing GenTool for Gen/ZH, and reading the "Handling Red Alert 2 and Yuri’s Revenge on Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10" section for RA2/YR.

No, you need to directly run Generals.exe in both the Generals and Zero Hour directories as admin. The First Decade launcher doesn't affect that (and BTW, you don't need that launcher at all now that you've patched it to 1.03, as no game within TFD requires the DVD after that).

Even if that fails, you can manually create the Options.ini file that early SAGE games sometimes have trouble creating on newer Windows systems: http://forums.cncnz.com/topic/12319-how-to-play-generals-zero-hour-in-windows-7-x64/

I tried finding that setup.exe but couldn't find it.

What setup.exe are you even trying to find, and why?

That's an installation step, not to be used when you already have the game on your PC. The setup.exe is on the disc.
