    DirectX 8.1 error FIXED!!

    Here is how you can run Generals, ZH, Shockwave etc on modern computers:

    Make a desktop shortcut of Generals.exe

    Right click on it. Select Properties.

    Click the "Shortcut" tab.

    Add -win to the target line
    (eg. "C:Program Files (x86)EA GamesCommand and Conquer Generalsgenerals.exe" -win)

    Now right click on your desktop. Select "Screen Resolution"
    found in the Display option

    Change to "Portrait" (The screen will turn on its side. This is temporary and required for the fix. It will be changed back soon)

    Start the game.

    Go to options and change screen size from 800 etc to the bigger size.

    Exit and restore screen orientation back to landscape.

    That was necessary to fit the window on the screen.

    Play!!
