After a long time of not playing I finally gave in and re-installed C&C generals. The problem is: it installs fine, the auto run starts up fine but after I hit 'play' it doesn't start. It shows the process of 'generals' in the task bar but then it disappears and the game does not start up nor gives a dialog box on what happened.
Windows XP Proffesional version 2002

If you need any more information please tell me where to get it. Also note that make computer has two main drives: The 'C:'drive and the 'D:' drive. The 'C:' drive is part of one hard-drive, the 'D:' is another. I know it doesn't make much sense, I hardly understand it myself and regret having it done.
Also one more thing: I have the PC/CD Deluxe edition which includes both generals and Zero Hour
