I have big problems installing C&C Generals. Let me first explain. I played this game on my previous computer which was an xp2200+ with Via kt333 motherbard and 2*256MB pc2700, it worked good. Now i have upgraded my motherboard to an Nforce2, my cpu is now xp2500+ running @2GHz and i got 512MB DDR 400 ram. Now my problem is that whenever i try to install the game i see the install screen where it checks my windows version and so on, but after a few seconds ,nothing it exits and i cant install the damn thing:thumbsdown: I have since my previous computer of course formatted, i have checked the registry deleted all my old files but still this fucking game wont install, why the fuck not ? I have all drivers for all my stuff up to date, no virus nothing plz help me man :clap: :clap:

I hope you still are visiting this forum: 1: Disable any anti-virus you are running . 2: If you have screen saver running , stop it. 3: If you have Taskmanager running , stop it. 4: If you install Windows XP and have website catcher running, stop it 5: If you have Windows XP and have service running with www,ftp,smtp server, IIS MANAGER, please stop IIS MANAGER it will stop www,ftp and smtp servers automatically or stop them one by one. 6: If you have Norton System work 2003 or 2004 full installed and running , stop it, the damn application always try to record, monitor, software installation and it might conflict with the game installation . Norton will try to monitor your installation at the sametime. 7: Go to Display Properties : make sure "Turn off hard drive" NEVER is selected; "Stand By" NEVER is selected; "Turn OFF Monitor" NEVER is selected... THEN go to POWER : Hibernation options none of the options are selected. You might have checked all these options and i'm assuming you understand them, but just in case. All those options running or selected otherwise will couse problems during installation and/or play time with a lot of games, worst with CnC Generals. I have said all these because according to your PC configuration, hardware wise , it's perfect to play CnC generals, that's why i'm thinking maybe it's because all or some of those services and applications running in the bkground. I hope this help a little... :)
