    What exactly do you mean by "cuts out"?

    If your base and all your units explode, I'd suspect its due to being a
    non-legit copy.

    If the whole machine crashes with a stop error, or if the application
    crashes try updating your drivers, video in particular.

    I bought it brand new from EB games in Arlington VA. In fact reserved it
    around a month ago. I play it using the CD of course.
    I have a 2-3 month old Toshiba laptop. has
    1. 1.7 GHZ Duo
    2. 1 G ram
    3. Intel video card ( I suspect this )

    when I start a game. In this case a skirmish, it stops around 30 sec later
    and the Vista screen pops up.

    I am facing difficulty while trying to install C&C 3 on my vista 32 machine.

    The install file seems to be incompatible with vista, because it can install
    on my XP sp2 machine.
    The file that gives the error is cnc3std.msi

    Please supply some help here, it is driving me crazy.

    Just bought it myself today and it installed fine without any
    incompatibility problems here on Vista 32-bit.

  10. I'm also running C&C 3 on Vista 64-bit. When I first installed it, it
    wouldn't load. I fixed it by installing the first patch.

    Well, vista x64 isn't actually supported by Command and Conquer 3, however
    there are workarounds such as making sure you have patched your game to
    1.02. Visit these forums
    http://forums.ea.com/mboards/category.jspa?sls=2&categoryID=34 for help with
    x64, there is a board for vista 64 problems in the 'technical help' area.
    I have had no problems with the single player side of the game on vista
    64, however there are still problems being worked out for many people on the
    multiplayer.

    Yeah, officially it isn't supported (64-bit) though the patches are starting
    to improve its performance on that system.

    you cant use the no-cd cracks with any ea game, you have to put the cd in,
    they some how time bomb it. damned annoying but thats ea for you, from what
    i see of the demo is c&c3 worth buying? looked like generals with a lick of
    paint to me, after company of heroes i think a lot of rts companies need to
    kick their selves up the backside,

    That's a Westwood feature that was around back in the other C&C games. I
    don't use CD cracks that much, but I don't think all EA games have that
    issue. Now I have to find a EA game to go test it on.
