Generals Deluxe Edition Serial Problem
I Have 4 Serials Of Generals Deluxe Edition Serial Problem Get Error (Serial Number Is Invalid Plz Try Another)
How I Try Another And This Is New I Just Got It From A Shop
Plz Need Help
Call the Customer Support.
its weird that it doesnt work
got the same problem
Anybody Can Help AS pLZ
pLZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Everybody Says Go Ea.com We Go There Nothing Happend And I Send 100 Email And Nobody Answer I Have To Go To The Main Office And Travel To Somebody Help Me Plz Why There Is No Live Chat Its A Big Co For The Gaming
I Get Tierd
I called the EA support in the U.S twice and they couldn't help me, im very upset and cannot believe EA games. To the point an agent threw me to another website called strike-team.net and I contacted them and they have never supported generals zero hour. Just because a game is old does not mean you should stop supporting it especially when retail stores are still selling it!!!!
I think Strike-Team only handles TD-RA2... But this forum cannot help you, you must contact EA customer support and somehow get it into their heads that the problem is their to fix.

Hey guys great news I found a way to fix the "invalid serial number" error! its kind of funny actually after spending days figuring this out.
If you bought the original game then your serial number is actually valid. weird huh? The real problem is that the serial key gets registered without the - (dahs's) and we will need to include them using a windows utility called regedit.
its simple follow these steps
1.On your windows machine click on start and in the (Search for programs and files) box type in regedit and open regedit.exe
2. Next click on the little arrow next to the folder named HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and make your way to ergc directory the full path is
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Wow6432Node -> Electronic Arts -> EA Games -> Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour -> ergc
Note: If you cannot find Wow6432Node then ignore it and procees to Electronic Arts -> EA Games Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour -> ergc. Thanks to Khalilz for pointing this out.
3. Click on the ergc directory and right click on Default (located on the right side under Name) and Modify it.
4. Now simply add the - between the serial numbers.Write it exactly how its written on the game you bought. if you notice It only displays your serial number without the - between the code so you will just need to add them in
for example change it from 123A5678B8CDD3D3P0P0 to 123A-5678-B8CD-D3D3-P0P0 now try playing the same you should be able to play it online
If you try playing and your buildings blow up 30 seconds into the game there is another fix for this.
This is a built in feature EA added to help prevent anti-piracy
[Make sure you read the steps above then continue reading this]
Have the regedit open on ergc directory copy the serial that you have modified (the serial number that you included with the -) and uninstall zero hour keeping the regedit still open on the ergc directory.
Now heres the trick, we will need to reinstall zero hour BUT as it is installing zero hour we quickly replace the registry with the modified serial number that included the dash's. So put the CD in and start up the installation process when it will prompts you for the serial number type the serial number as you normally would and as soon as you put the serial number click next and stop there, dont install zero just yet!
Now go to the opened regedit.exe and click on ergc directory using and modify the default registry key by adding the dashs in the serial key. And then proceed installing zero hour. this will help bypass the built in anti-piracy glitch and it will work!
Let me know if this works and thank me when you get the time enjoy guys looking forward to playing with you

You Are A Pro
But I Have A Comment For Something
I Got My General Regeidt In Folder
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Electronic Arts -> EA Games -> Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour -> ergc
The Folder Wow6432Node Was No General There
Same Way I Fix In Electronic Arts
Becz Not All The Windows Take Regedit General In Wow6432Node May Widows 7 Only
Thx Very Mouch
Should Everybody Use This Way
Have A Nice Day
