Command and Conquer generals...

Hmm, am having doubt that command and conquer generals really works on window 7, ive tried to install it, and a error message saying u encounter a serious error, it may do off overheating etc.. it also says please mae sure that your system meets the minimum requirment, ive contacted ea but they didnt help me, they say they would send me an email but i know its a lie cuz they never do, i think command and conquer is only compatible with professional and ultimate, but not home premium.. and i got window 7 family pack home premium, and suggestion? people told me that window 7 can change to 32 bit but i dont think its true

well through being stupid and having bad discs, i cant actually get the game to run without whining about the CD not being there. Cant even find a working crack (legally, as i own the game) to get it working to test.

The executable is the .exe to run the program.

right-click on the shortcut for the application you want to open, right-click on the shortcut and choose open file location.

There you'll find the .exe. Right-click on that,choose Compatibility Mode and run it as Vista or XP. You might also want to make some other changes under Settings

First off, why is my girlfriend your desktop background?? :P (joke)

Nah seriously, have you patched the game to the latest version? 1.7 or 1.8 is the latest i think? And is all your graphics drivers upto date also?

Have you installed directx 9c too? i know that windows 7 comes with DX11 but some elements of DX9c were not included i think (please correct me if im wrong).

Just check all that and post back please.
