Command & Conquer Generals Direct X 8.1 Error When Launching Game?

1 posts New member

I've got Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium installed on my Desktop. I recently installed Command & Conquer Generals and when i try and boot the game up i get the following error message.

"Please make sure you have Direct X 8.1 or higher installed. Also verify that your video card meets the minimum requirement"

I've been playing this game for ages now and i am only now just getting this error message since yesterday.

Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this please as it's driving me mad:-(

    There are not a lot of members here who play Generals so you will need to be patient or look in other forums.

    This is related to resolution setting with the type of monitor you have.
    There is a config file or ini file in My documents/games/Cnc Generals.....
    Width and Height I believe is the resolution
