I run windows 7 Enterprise, I installed Command and Conquer: The first decade, and attempted to play it without running compatibility mode. Some of the games, like Command and Conquer: Red Alert, work without compatibility mode, however, the one I want to play, Command and Conquer: Generals and Command and Conquer: Generals Zero Hour, do not. I enabled Windows XP SP2 compatibility mode on them, but they still would not play, I made them run as an administrator and they still would not work. I disabled the visual themes, Desktop composition, and scaling on high DPI setting, But it still would not run. Always crashing at the splash-screen and returning to the launcher.
Next, I tried installing and running them in a Virtual environment, Windows Virtual Pc, which runs windows XP, to the same result.http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/
What can I try to make it run? I am willing to try anything, and have enough experience to accomplish just about anything if some one can explain what I need to do.
I am willing to modify system files, and registry values.
I am unable to dual-boot windows XP, due to the lack of a functioning window XP disk.
Yes, I have contacted EA customer support, only to receive the response "It has not be tested for that"
Yes, I know Command and Conquer: The first decade was not made for Windows 7
