  1. I have recently brought C&C Generals + Zero Hour. I have installed both games without problem but when i try to run Zero hour i am getting an error message advisng:

    "Command & Conquer (TM) Generals Zero Hour: game.dat - Entry Point Not Found.

    the procedure entry point _MSSDisablehreadLibraryCalls@4 could not be located in the dynamic link library mss32.dll."

    I have tried using the regcure application to clean my registry but the error keeps coming up. I have also tried re-installing th game and this makes no diffeerence.

    Can anyone help me?

    thank you.

    Entry Point Not Found; almost always this is a versioning error between the EXE and the DLL.

    If BOTH came with the install package, then the developer messed up.
    If they came separately (eg the dll was already on your system), then you need to
    update the EXE or the DLL to the latest version

    report your problem to the company where you bought it :)
    if they can't fix it, stop payment

    try the developers website. If there is an update/upgrade, take it, if there is a forum, join it and ask there, if there is a contact us, try that too.
