Windows 7: Command & Conquer Generals Launch Problem Solved

26 Aug 2016   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1

My problem is, that the installation, what goes down seemingly all right, does not create anything in the /My Documents, like the other games. Most people talk about what to do to fix the "running the game" problem once you located the files in /My Documents. But I don't have anything there related to C&C Generals! Do you have any idea why is that happening?
Having admin privileges is not my priority issue right now. That will come later, I'm sure.

Looks like I found a solution to my problem:

Under the "Known issues in this security update"

Give it a try, worked for me!

Just got mine working.

When naming the file "options.ini". Don't forget to enable extensions for known file types (folder and search options - view - untick hide extensions for known file types).

Otherwise the file will actually be "options.ini.txt". took me a while to work out where I was going wrong
