Command & Conquer Generals will not run on my pc

Recommended Posts

Ok... wtf?

 

I bought C&C Generals + Zero Hour and it works fine on my laptop.

 

However, it will not run on my desktop. My specs exceed the recommendations.

 

When I try to run the games, it freezes @ the splash screen and I have to use the task manager to end both "generals.exe" and "game.dat" (which locks up 50% cpu, btw).

 

I've spent months & months trying with EA's tech support. They ultimately told me it was a problem that required me to wipe & reload. ( I dont think so).

 

After some fumbling, I managed to get Generals (not exp pak) to run through Windows 2000 in VMWare, but I still cannot get Zero Hour to work.

 

AND EVEN when I got my new HDD, i did a totally clean install of XP there, and neither generals nor ZeroHour would run on that either.

 

 

Help me please! (Y)

maybe ur comp is too good for that game

 

I actually asked EA that, maybe things were running too fast or somethign weird like that. Didn't really get an answer.

 

 

EDIT: WTF?!?!?

I try to start it up again, just for fun, having changed NO settings and it F*ing works...Great... WTF??????????????

I think I'll wait for the new 3D thing-a-ma-jigger to come out. Thanks tho!

 

Edit: and BTW - I installed the game last year, involving over 10 uninstall/reinstalls and 200+ reboots! :whistle:
