Error: Unable to set the video mode

Just downloaded this product. I thought it was set up to be compatible with Windows 7 or I would have never purchased it in the first place. I downloaded the Red Alert 2 product and tried to play and got Error: Unable to set the video mode. I have gone into the compatibility settings and changed them to a variety of different operating systems including 95, 98, and XP. Should not sell a product that is indicated as Windows 7 compatible when its not. Need some help. Thanks.

Re: Error: Unable to set the video mode

My PC is powweful and I bought the Command and Conquer collection...all the games dosn't work! have different error messages such as unable to set the video mode! for some reason I always have problems with EA games..this company has a lot of issues even the new games such as BF4. EA seriously need to prove better service, I rate you 3/10.

Re: Error: Unable to set the video mode

Look, you can complain all you want about how they packaged it... it's bad, okay? We know it, they probably know it too by now, complaining won't change a thing.

 

However, the link mrtnptrs gave WILL help you, so instead of complaining, just read it through, okay? It's usually just a matter of finding the game settings .ini file and adjusting it manually.
