Hi DSWALLS,

Have you even tried to check out the support forums for the game? - Support Home Page

18Visit the game’s forums – While we have a wealth of knowledge here, sometimes we need a specialist. I’d expect Bethesda to know more about Fallout 3 then most of us here… just as I’d expect Windows 7 forum to know more about the OS than a game’s website.
From my Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues

Also, according to this, the game should work under Windows 7 - https://www.sevenforums.com/gaming/25...atibility.html

With that said, is this a copy or retail disk?

My friend also has that problem. i don't have that problem, but i had it with generals. so i think here's the deal: in the legal versions the setup/launch of the game can't create options.ini (in win7). so try to install the game on a pc with xp or something, then put the options.ini (most likely in my documents/Tiberium wars data folder)on a usb stick and paste it into your documents folder in win7 (again Tiberium Wars data). then i think it should work.

Hey sygnus, thanks for chiming in. I keep getting this error no matter what I try "The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows your running. Check your computers information to see if you need an 32 bit (x86) or x64 (64bit) version of the program. Then contact the software publisher." According to EA I have the pre-release disc which is 16 bit due to it having the original C&C on it. Yet I have gone through other forums where folks get the same thing and then "magically" it works! (by magically, they never post what they did to get it to install) Now I have done everything in your tutorial, danced around in a grass skirt while shaking chicken bones at it. Still nothing. Oh yeah, the name of the disc while in the drive is "GDI95" or "NOD95". So either Im missing a disc or it just wont go.

don't know if you tried this yet but I see the game is available on Steam and it has this notice:

Notice: WINDOWS 7 USERS: To ensure proper functionality, you must disable User Account Control ("UAC") via the Windows Control Panel before launching the game.

it can't hurt to try if nothing else has worked

As I've said... have you tried the game's forums???

It doesn't hurt to see what they have to say. I'm quite sure some of those guys are running the game on 7. See what they did to get it running.

My two cents.

BTW I'm not familiar with a "pre-release disc" so...

That "could" be the issue since 16-bit apps/games do have a problem installing under Windows 7.

That game came out in Mar 28, 2007 so there's no way it should be using a 16-bit installer, so... either the game is pirated... or the "pre-release disc" was not intended for public distribution.

Also, according to the system requirements, the game will run on XP as well as Vista (32-bit) only - Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So...

BTW - 64-bit versions of Windows do not support 16-bit components, 16-bit processes, or 16-bit applications

Thats what I was thinking. I bought it off Amazon, so theres no telling what I got here. I took your suggestion, and started looking deeper into the C&C forums. I have no key for the game, and all I have with the TW logo is the "bonus disc" with wall papers, and scenes from C&C KW. I think I got duped, and just have the original C&C discs for the price of TW............ Is TW available on EADM?

I'm sorry I'm a little slow with the acronyms? TW? EADM?

Anyways I'm sure you can look that up yourself.

Sorry, and good luck.
