    Hi,
    Try using compatibility mode.
    Uninstall the game first. Then using compatibility mode, run the setup.exe or the autorun.exe or whatever it maybe in WinXP SP2 and in administrator mode. After you are done, right click on the C&C game icon and under compatibility tab, check 'WinXP SP2' and 'Run this program as an administrator'.

    Also, if this doesn't help, try using Virtual XP.

  3. Make sure you have downloaded Direct X 9 updates for Win 7. Direct X 9 in Win 7 needs this update as Win 7 does not support all features of Direct X 9 straight out of the box.

  4. I found this ages ago to fix this same issue **FIXED**

    Ok guys, found a fix. If anyone is having the same problems too, this will work for both XP and Vista, x32 and x64 if you're missing an options.ini file in My Documents for XP or User Name\Documents\ for Vista. If you're missing the options.ini file, do this and it will work!

    Open your My Documents folder and add "options.ini" file (plain text file with renamed extension), then add the following and save the file:

    AntiAliasing =
    DrawScrollAnchor =
    GameSpyIPAddress = 0.0.0.0
    Gamma = 50
    IPAddress = 0.0.0.0
    IdealStaticGameLOD = High
    LanguageFilter = false
    MoveScrollAnchor =
    MusicVolume = 55
    Resolution = 800 600
    Retaliation = yes
    SFX3DVolume = 79
    SFXVolume = 71
    ScrollFactor = 50
    SendDelay = no
    StaticGameLOD = Low
    UseAlternateMouse = no
    UseDoubleClickAttackMove = no
    VoiceVolume = 70


    After that, re-enter the game and set options to your liking.


    Hope it helps you
