Command and conquer The First Decade

So I am on my dads computer, i don't know all the specs but i know for a fact its strong enough to play any of the games.

So it seems that NONE of his Westwood/EA Games work (Command and conquer in specific) I tried to get C&C Generals: Zero hour to work. I got an error that looked like this

I looked for the ntdll.dll file and i can't find it in the Generals Zero Hour folder. I am reinstalling the game right now, so i am going to see if that works. apparently he has tried this before, so i am not sure if this is actually going to work. Hopefully i can get this to work. I would love to get his games working for christmas, since i am poor lol

Am I correct Command and Conquer is an older game? It may be the games won't run on Windows 7 64-bit. You can try running them in XP Compatible mode.

I'm willing to bet it won't run on a 64-bit OS.

Huh, never heard of that one, try doing on update. Surely there's a few updates around for that game.

I have tried everything i can think of. Compatibility mode, newest drivers, adding .ini files, admin mode, reinstalling. Nothing works to my knowledge. Could it be because it is windows 7 Professional?

No, it could be because you're running 64-bit. I'm running 32-bit, everything is fine.
