  • Solution 1 : 
    Go into the game root directory. (The folder that has your generals.exe) and delete the dbghelp.dll
  • Solution 2 : 
    Edit the options.ini file.
    I installed my game through Steam on Windows 11.
    Now it’s important to note that on the newer versions of windows.
    Some documents get uploaded automatically to a OneDrive folder.
    This caused a lot of confusion for me because my documents folder with the ini file was empty.
    • There are 2 directories you can check for the Options.ini folder.
      • 1 : C:\Users\User\OneDrive\Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data
      • 2 : C:\Users\User\Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data
        • Inside one of those directories. You should find an Options.ini file. 
          Inside the file update your resolution to 800 600
          You can adjust it once the game starts. But just to get the game started update it to 800 600

          AntiAliasing = 18
          CampaignDifficulty = 2
          GameSpyIPAddress =
          Gamma = 50
          IPAddress =
          IdealStaticGameLOD = High
          LanguageFilter = false
          MusicVolume = 55
          Resolution = 800 600
          Retaliation = yes
          SFX3DVolume = 79
          SFXVolume = 71
          ScrollFactor = 50
          SendDelay = no
          StaticGameLOD = High
          UseAlternateMouse = no
          UseDoubleClickAttackMove = no
          VoiceVolume = 70
  • Solution 3, Also I believe this was my fix for the screen size limitation : 
    Install the C&C GenTool_v8.8.exe
    I can’t remember exactly which site I installed this from. I found a link on Reddit.
    I do not take any credit for this tool. I found it online.
    I did not make it. But it did solve my issue.
