trouble running CC Zero Hour on Win 7 Pro RRS feed

  • Question

  • Originally, after Zero Hour installing (legally) using Win 7 it would crash.  No Errors.  

    I found the fix on this forum and did the following:

    1 Created an Options.ini in my user folder

    2.  Ensured that I was running as admin and in Compatibility mode I used XP SP 2

    I could then  load Zero hour but when  starting in Challenge or Skirmish mode my base is destroyed within 15 sec and I am defeated.  I can fight one battle in Campaign mode but cannot go onto the second battle.  Instead of having a  Continue button, I have a Play Again button

    The fixes worked for Generals
