Still Having Problems...



Ok, lately. I've been having problems with CnCNet ever since I reformatted my computer. And the thing is, when I boot-up my computer. My screen looks like this.



Compared to this.



Does that mean I do not have Windows XP Professional?

to see if your windows xp version is Home Edition, the "Blue bar" of Windows XP Professional is be green when booting. Or in "My Computer>Propieties" show it too.


you forgotten the Starter edition of Windows XP (do you mean, Windows 98 with XP skin?), probally, this shit have the same issue.

They removed the Home Edition/Professional Edition distinction on the boot screen in one of the service packs


best way to find out is by right clicking my computer and clicking properties (As pichorra said)

Haha, I didn't think of that.


Because with Windows 7, CnCNet was working fine (I use wireless). But now that I reformatted to Windows XP. It hasn't been working at all! And I also updated the firmware on my Linksys WRT54G router if that has anything to do with it.


I've been dieing to play some C&C95 lately online! :(

what is your wireless card? did it haves a configuration tool? if yes, disable the "Zero Wireless Setup" service and start using the tool. that thing works with Conter-Strike, probally it should works too with CnCNet.




What a hell PAE is doing enable in your computer sice it does not have more-than-4gb installed in your computer?? and also, this thing is sucks in Windows XP, it only really works in Windows Server 2003.

in "Device Manager" in Propieties of my computer. also, for removing PAE, just remove "/PAE" in boot.ini section with MSCONFIG, or editing boot.ini with EDIT or NOTEPAD.




i connected with cheese trough TeamViewer. wraid. there's not /PAE extenion in boot.ini, and there's none wireless confuguration tool from manufacturer, it seems to use the bad Windows XP Wireless Zero Configuration. i really do not know what happens...
