Doesn't work on Windows 10.

Command and Conquer Generals does NOT work on Windows 10. Windows 7 has been defunct for over ten years. So...we tried EVERYTHING! We struggled for 4 hours. This game does NOT work on Windows 10, therefore it is OBSOLETE.

    Needs a little tweaking to get it to work on Windows 10: a modified Options.ini file in My Documents, & voilà ! I'm not entirely sure of the whole process to get it to work, but I have Generals: Zero Hour & the Generals original working, I've made it work several times in the past as well (when I suffered a dataloss.) Before I had a problem of it crashing when minimizing twice, but now it works nicely (I played many mods like Destructive Forces & Enhanced —maybe that's why.) If you want the easy way to get them to work, just download Gentool (it's a DLL file you place in the folder which fixes everything (Fixed Executable, HD resolution etc.) But I just installed GenTool, then removed it & got the Modified Zoom file. I'm not sure where to find the modified Options.ini & Zoom but you can search on Google & find it easily (remember to make a backup !) ...

  • You can fix all problems with Generals and Zero Hour in like 5 minutes... Get GenPatcher (google it), and click on 'Apply Fixes' and it will apply whichever fix is needed for your game to be stable on Windows 7, Windows 10, and Windows 11. Trust me, this will save you a LOT of time.
  • I am on windows 10. On my monitor is only liket freze....
  • Same problem on windows 11 game will not load despite a disk installation which I got from 2005 at an EB games store
