Options.ini goes in Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Data
Not C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Command & Conquer Generals

This might have been said already but...

If you are running Vista Home Basic, DO NOT CLICK when Zero Hour is loading, that will make it glitch and cause an error. Just don't click anywhere on the screen while its loading.

ALSO, TO FIX THE HANG ON 2ND SPLASH SCREEN PROBLEM ON VISTA:

Go to your /documents/generals zero hour blah blah blah/ directory

Delete everything. Create a new file called options.ini

Open it and paste the following:

AntiAliasing =
DrawScrollAnchor =
GameSpyIPAddress = 0.0.0.0
Gamma = 50
IPAddress = 0.0.0.0
IdealStaticGameLOD = High
LanguageFilter = false
MoveScrollAnchor =

Retaliation = yes
SFX3DVolume = 79
SFXVolume = 71
ScrollFactor = 50
SendDelay = no
StaticGameLOD = Low
UseAlternateMouse = no
UseDoubleClickAttackMove = no
VoiceVolume = 70

Save and exit,
Then send me a check for $500 and play the game.

($500 is optional of course)

OMG dude THANK YOU, I've been trying to get this to work on my PC after my vista update for a year now... Now I'm running this with Windows 7, it works just fine. Only the opening graphics in the main menu does not play, but what ever the game actually works now.

Hats off to ya

I appreciate everyones wisdom and knowledge so far on this topic; however, I cannot get my game to run. I disabled UAC through msconfig.exe, I set up my options.ini, I put it the comptability in xp service pack 2, I clicked run as admin... I get two splash screens then the "technical difficulties" that hides behind the splash screen. I am running vista 64 ( pain in the boooty, Dell is shipping me 7... praying C&C works on there.)

Anyone have any ideas on what else I could try?
I have also tried patching from the autorun screen, and after I patch and it attempts to install my patch, I get the "Could not rename/delete file English.big, then the stupid git attempts to reinstall the patch in an endless loop.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Gracias. Thank you. Danka. Rar

I finally got my game to work using a little creativity. I play generals on my old laptop and it has worked great on their depsite the fact that the thing is a POS.Anyways, i attempted to get a good patch on my vista 64, the auto patch didnt work, neither did the patch from this site, installed myself. So i went to my old copy on my xp laptop, copied the english.big and replaced the one in my vista 64, and voila, it worked, and im online and everything is dandy. Thanks for everyones ideas and help.

if anyone wants me to send them a copy of the english.big file for them to replace themselves, feel free to pm me with ur email address and ill send it along for u

I have Vista, and I have First Decade with CNCGZH installed on it, and the latest Shockwave mod.
I start the normal Zero Hour, and it runs fine, but when I go to skirmish, the AI just sit there. It's just their command centers and single dozer sitting there. They are all white (as in neutral white)

I've tried reinstalling, and AI works fine with Shockwave. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to run CNCGZH Deluxe Edition on windows 8.1. Generals works, the options.ini trick worked for that one. But when Zero Hour completes installation, it says "error 1628: Failed to complete installation" then tells me the game has been successfully installed. When I try to run it, (after using options.ini fix, setting it to use XP service pack 3 compatibility, and running as administrator) it goes through the first splash, then the second splash crashes and gives me the serious error. Does anyone have a fix for this?

[EDIT] I followed someone's advice for the installation bug but I'm still getting the same crash issue.

Everyone I know has told me 8 and 8.1 work fine. Just do a clean install, no compatibility and no options tricks.

It could be your hardware.

I've installed it on others' 8.1 computers too but if anyone's having the issue I'm getting I'd really appreciate knowing what they did to amend it, or if anyone has any suggestions.

Also when I try to patch to 1.04 it says "Old file not found".
