Well, my new Dell computer came 2 days ago and I am very impressed with the package.

However with all the games coming out on vista i though i might aswell jump on the band waggon and let microsoft rule the world...

anyways after installing most of my games i moved onto CnC the first decade and it installed but when launched it gave me the ble generals zero hour start up screen... and this stayed the same for about a minute then closed itself down and returned me to the command and conquer menu of the choice of the 11 or 12 games...

Any help or advise would be much appreciated.

(btw i didnt know what section to post it in so decided this was the most fitting.)

Get the games working on Windows Vista:

Firstly take ownership of the TFD main folder too. To do this right click on "Command & Conquer The First Decade" folder > Properties > Security > Advanced > Owner > Edit > Select your username > Tick Replace Owner box > Apply.
C&C1 (or TD/C&C95/C&C Gold): See VK's patch above, and Scorpio's DLL file for LAN play

For TS/FS, RA2/Yuri's, Renegade & Generals/Zero Hour:
Navigate to the folder where TFD is installed and find the specific games folder.
Do the following for all .exe's (applications) in the folder:
Goto Compatibility Tab, uncheck "run this program in compatibility mode for"
and also check the box that says run as admin.

If you have no compatibility tab, run this command instead (without the quotes):
"% systemroot%\System32\mshta.exe res://acprgwiz. dll/compatmode.hta"


More here.

Well there are 2 things that I'd try. Now this is me talking here, so it's up to you what to do.

1) Windows XP compatability mode (right click on the exe, properties, there's a compatability tab somewhere, select windows xp service pack 2)

2) Reformat your computer, install XP.
