 What OS are you using and does it play the orignal C&C Generals?

 Have you read the "Read Me" file for C&C Gen. to make sure you have your PC setup properly to run the game? It tells you what you should do before playing the game.

right click on executable shortcut, click properties, select compatibility tab, tick "run this program in compatibility mode for:" and select "Windows 2000", "apply" and "OK". re-run game.

Noizer,

do you have any other problems with your system, or with running any other 3D applications, or is it just this particular game that is causing you a problem?

the more background info we have, the better the answers will be

 I just installed the game on my PC to see if any problems and it installed and played OK so it should not be an XP compatability problem. I also had the game on here when I 1'st built this PC with W2K with no probs so you might have other issues wth your PC not related to the game.

install latest game patch too: ftp://ftp.ea.com/pub/eapacific/generals/generalszh/DownloadablePatches/GeneralsZH-104-english.exe
navigate to "my documents" and delete folder "Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data\"
re-run game. at 1st run it take some time to reconfigure. look like hang/lockup at 1st initial screen and nothing responded for around 1-2 minutes. then everythink goes smooth. that happend at 1st run only, every other future running is load around in sec.
