I have done exactly what you say I have to do to get the game to work, it was also an epic fail I still get the same error messages.I know for a fact it cannot be my Ati card as I had no problems when I was running Xp.

This is getting depressing, I think I am reaching the point where I am about to give up and down grade back to Xp

Sorry to hear that mate. I know how you feel, I 'was' close to at the very least, setting up a dual boot with XP because of this as I love the Command & Conquer series of games. (apart from CNC4).
I hope you manage to get it sorted mate before you drop Windows 7. Consider doing a dual boot if anything so you don't lose this quality Windows 7?

this is not your ATi problem cause i tried running C&C Zero Hour on computer without video card or lets say it has chipset but the worst one its " Integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2" <-- lol but yeah it worked so therefore its not about graphic card ,

and secondly i also tried ZeroHour to my other computer with Windows 7 32bit its also running on Integrated or chipset graphic card with "GMA G31" its better than " Integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2" but i haven't encounter any problems with it not a single of it

Just wanted to chime in here:

C&C Generals / Zero Hour has problems with Vista, too.
I tried very hard to make it work 2 years ago and gave up.

I got this game working. It does not install properly on Windows 7 but can be fixed manually quite easily.

See the following link for details.

all you need to do is go to tools folder options view tab and uncheck "hide extensions for known file types" then zero hour to the latest version then make the options.ini file in the C:\Users\youraccountname\Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data as the link says above. after that right click zero hour shortcut then run to compatibility select xp service pack 3 then below check run as admin. you should be good to go. if what i said does not work reinstall both gen and zero hour. once you do this make sure the generals and zero hour folders are gone from the EA folder. then do what i said above. also before you run the game make sure you have the latest gfx drivers and directx.

Generals Zero Hour online issue
I'm a Generals Zero Hour online player. Since yesterday I'm experiencing a strange issue: the game search for updates for 1-2 minutes and then it says "unable to connect to Generals Zero Hours servers, please check your internet connection". Are servers down? Did it happened to anyone?
