If there is a file missing, you should consider reinstalling.

1. No need to type in fancy fonts and colors, we know frustrated people when we see them.
2. Is both your copies of Generals and Zero Hour genuine ones or pirated ones? If pirated, forget it, you probably won't get past the serial number check anyway, not to mention we don't support piracy here.
3. If you have a crack, remove it.
4. Have you tried downloading and installing the patch independently without doing it through the game? If not, give it a try.
5. If all else fails, try a fresh re-installation of the game. Uninstall the game and delete the game's directory in the C: drive (The folders found in My Documents such as saves and downloaded maps can be left alone, no need to delete those), re-install the game and then try patching it again.

Okay, just to get things straightened out a little more, answer the following questions:
1. Is your copy of the game legit?
2. Is the game part of The First Decade pack or stand-alone?
3. Have you tried patching the game without the crack applied?

Okay, that would do.

You can't apply the patch with the crack installed. Remove the crack then patch it. Also note that the crack will not allow online play, so you're gonna need to keep the game pure.

Games in The First Decade pack uses special TFD patches. Under Generals and ZH case, it's unnecessary since the game already came as the latest version.

The point is not to play with pirated copy. Buy a legit copy.

And I heard that if you try to play a pirated copy, you can start up a game just fine but after 1 minute all of your units blow up and you lose. Kind of cool if you ask me.


Also, this topic is 4 years old...

I lol'd. "Why can't you support my stolen property!?!"
If you need help, post in the forum. You'll get help a lot faster than if you send me a PM.

I reject all buddy requests. I don't think 'buddy' needs to be made official. It's not like you're marrying me.
