I am not computer friendly at all I tried understanding your description on how to make command and conquer work on windows 7 but I can't figure it out, I have a HP Pavilion dv7-4280us Entertainment PC and I just wanna figure out how I can play the game I tried EA support but they pretty much told me I was SOL. HELP PLEASE! I bought the game command and Conquer the first decade if it makes any difference.
My issue was when I changed the options.ini I couldn't update the program. (remember to install direct x) 1. I needed to do a clean Reinstall of command and conquer generals. 2. Updated the Command and Conquer game with it's patches (and dont play the game yet). 3. got rid of the read only and Changed the compatibility to Windows XP service pack 3 and always run as administrator (make sure all users can make changes). 4. opened the options.ini, then pressed the Save as button to All Files. Then typed in options.ini 2b1af7f3a8
