Were you trying to install the game using a disc? If so, you might want to double check whether it's not badly scratched thus damaging some sectors in the disc itself by making an ISO of it. If the software used to making the ISO failed to do so, the disc I think is the problem. .

It could be the driver (CD/DVD/BD), you can use a software like powerISO to make a copy of the install file to your PC and emulate it to install, I think PowerISO has a trial, not sure tho, a similar software might so you might wanna check those out, the thing is sometimes Windows can't read files that those software can, it's weird, it took me 3 tries to install Windows 7 in my current PC, I blame sony (their Driver), but that is my 2 cents

On a Side note: I have this game somewhere, from the time DVD still existed hahaha Digital download is the best thing since... DVD

C&C Generals Zero Hour
I hope there is someone out there can help with this problem. I've got Generals working fine with Win 7 64,:D but when I play Zero Hour I am getting strange effects. The game loads fine you can start the campaigns but when you have been "Victorious" all I get are the options to "Play again"...
