    Make sure you updated your game and did you try running it in compatability mode? That has worked for old games in my experience.

        Personally You shouldnt be too sad, Generals is when EA started taking a major role in CnC world and they killed the series. If you havent played CnC 3 be happy I bought it and they ruined the whole game play. Also they said they made vast improvements and many additions to the game. In total there were about 10 new units not much of a story and terrible game play at best. But back to your problem. I can't think of a reason Generals would think you are running NT I would call their tech support if it exists anymore...

          LOL the Ultimate series is probably NT based it is supposed to be more stable(?).... Remember Windows 2000 Professional? It was NT based and when the Microsoft Campus beta version ended up on my gaming rig, about three months prior to the release, I had a heck of a time getting drivers and games to work.......

          Don't know what to say.....

            I love zero hour, and i love windows xp (or rather I hate vista). Superweapons General all the way!

            Does anyone know when Microsoft will stop allowing XP to be sold on new machines?

            Also, I think EA will ruin Red Alert's good name with RA3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KaCjkAA3L1I . The sound clips used in the trailer are the same ones from RA2 (like the GI getting shot up, or the russian lady saying "Unit Lost").

            Personally, I'm tired of playing Cold Warrior games against the reds. *Boots up Company of Heroes* (Now there's a fun game)

              yeah i bought c&c 3, and also kanes wrath. now i just play kanes wrath cause its the same game as tiberium wars except has xtra maps, new units, weapons and stuff. i love it personally. play it daily usually. lol as for vista ultimate, maybe it is considered NT. i dunno. i just remember playing zero hour on vista home. oh well. and not sure if they have support for it either being such an old game. thanx for all the info guys.
