I was wondering if there is anyway of fixing the first decade, so all the games work on vista.
System requirements labs say my machine is more then qualified to run command and conquer the first decade.
EA well they were absolutely useless (as expected).
I have the first decade installed on a vista operating system.
Vista home basic and vista business edition both yield the same results.
Command and Conquer - The Game Works.
Red Alert 1 - The Game Works.
Tiberean Sun - One or more DLL files were missing or damaged. Please reinstall.
Renegade - The Game Works.
Red Alert 2 + Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge - Fatal String Error.
Generals - The Game Works.
Generals Zero Hour - The Game Works.
Tiberean Wars - The Game Works.
I have reinstalled numerous times with failure of it working, I have tried running in compatibility mode for:
I have Command and Conwuer The First Decade Patch 1.02 Installed.
The game disc is not damaged and it is not due to the hardware on the computer, as I have a small partition on my hard drive with windows XP Professional Installed, All components of the game run fine.
I have "Sold Out" Red Alert 2 Disc - One is snapped in half but the other is fine, installing that on vista, Red Alert 2 Ran Fine.
So it is a conclusion that EA have made a bad job of thier complication disc, and are doing nothing to support Vista.
I have some of the older discs up in my loft, but I do not have all the missions for Red Alert 2 and have lost my Yuri's Revenge Disc, therefore I cannot play that and that is my favourite game.
I mean it isn't that much of a big issue as I can go on Windows XP partition and play it but was just wondering if anyone knew of a fix.
Thanks in advance.
For Irony there is the results of the system requirements lab from the EA website.
Note the following
Recommended: Windows XP
You Have: Microsoft Windows Vista Professional (Build 6000) PASS
And it puts Vista as above recommended.
