  1. Ah, thanks for the tip for the uninstaller/installer. That worked. Uninstalling that update didn't help the "DVD-ROM" error or the "Manual" error Anything else I'm missing? Thanks so much for responding.
  2. Hi everyone, Sorry for the necrobump. I've been trying the wonderful suggestions in this thread in all sorts of combinations to get C&C Generals and ZH working, and I fear I may have screwed things up even worse. Background: Running Windows 7, 64 bit, legitimate physical copy of C&C: The First Decade. Tried compatibility, fresh install, disable visual themes, disable UAC, run as admin, .ini file, official patch, etc. Right now when I try to run either one, I get the error about inserting the correct DVD-ROM. I tried to install this patch: http://www.cncnz.com/hosted-projects/command-patch/the-first-decade-unofficial-patch/ But it quickly stops, saying it has not been totally installed because "Command & Conquer Red Alert\Manual.pdf: This file contains invalid data (error 21FC)." I looked in that directory and that file wasn't even there, so I downloaded what I assume is the referenced Red Alert manual, renamed it, and put it in the folder. I still get the exact same error. Now when I try to uninstall any of the C&C games, there's an error that wasn't happening a few hours ago: Error Code: -5006 : 0x800700b7 Error Information: >SetupDLL\SetupDLL.cpp (1194) PAPP:Command & Conquer The First Decade PVENDOR:Electronic Arts (http://www.EAGames.com/) PGUID:66D6F3BD-CA23-41A4-9FA3-96B26B32528C $ @Windows XP Service Pack 1 (7601) BT_OTHER 0.0 Please help! I am at my wit's end, and medical school restarts in 6 days when I won't have time Thank you so much. KD
