I think who can't click in accept, accept and accept and finish just, can't play this game. This is the """"the most easiest (more than easiest)"""" thing to do!

Ja I know, this is the basically the Dummy's guide to installation, but it does address some key points that apparently a lot of people miss.

A grand majority of people out there won't need it, but some people can't be bothered to read the installation instructions, so here's a vid for those people.

Uh i think so, if you install zero hour on a different drive as if you install rise of the reds and shockwave at the same time, it wont work

I install the mod following the directions, and redirect the installation to the C&C The First Decade/Zero hour (Its slightly different, but you get the idea), yet when I start Zero Hour as I normally do, there is no ROTR content.

When I try to start it using the ROTR Beta 1.5 in my programs folder, the DOS prompt flahes up for about a milisecond, and nothing happens.

I've got the same problem. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit with The First Decade installed. The command prompt flashes for less than a second.

Same problem here, command prompt pops up and closes in less than 1 second and nothing happens.
First i thought it was because i have TFD but the install should work with TFD so i'm lost here cause i followed the video second time i installed it. Seems like theres something wrong with the launcher.

There needs to be a guide to installing with the first decade. Where to put the files this is helpful but everytime I install and send it to zero Hour in the first decade I get nothing.

im having problems trying to start the game. whenever i start ROTR public Beta, i get a CMD box that opens then close. It said "cannot find target file". I have the First Decade Zero Hour but i'm not sure to which file directory i should put the ROTR files into. first i tried putting them straight into "Command & Conquer(tm) First Decade\Command& Conquer Zero Hour" but that didnt work still, so i uninstalled first decade and reinstalled it to refresh everything. HELP? if it changes anything, i have windows vista >_<

mine worked. the problem is.... there are only three factions. I thought there will be 5 factions with 3 generals each. Do I have to download any other file or something?

I had to uninstall it and return to shock wave.

I wonder if anyone could help try and get the word out to the SWR team for ROTR to like have a look at some of my comments that i have made in the GLA 1.7 BETA mod ROTR just want to ask if they could have a look and think about some of the changes that they could make if they want to because some of the shockwave content is pritty awsome as well thanks again SWR TEAM FOR AWSOME MODS :)
