or if you are lazy you may try at /cdrom that is a symlink to /media/cdrom

now that i have gotten the installer to start its saying this
an older verson of comcrl32.dll exists on your computer. tiberian sun needs this file updated to run. please update it now
then when i press update it says your system does not need this update
how can i fix it?

if you press cancel, another similar message will pop up, press cancel again, and the installer will run ok...

ok, finished the download, was suprised that there was not install needed, just unpack the file, click on the game.exe and game started then crashed before was able to take control.
i then clicked on the sun.exe and the game runs great. brings back good memories. Thx again for the link. i can see a few sleepless nights in my future, btw i will be referring my wife to you at that time. im sure she wont be happy. ( hehe )

For the curious, here is the official download page (which directs to the link posted above). You can also get C&C and C&C:Red Alert for free from here.

Hi,

edit: I wasn't aware i have to start the program out the terminal. It works fine now!

I tried to run the downloaded version. After clicking sun.exe, the Wine Windows Program Loader is working and after 20 sec it disappears. Nothing happens. Its the same for every executable file in the SUN directory.
I moved everything I unzipped the the Wine "Program Files" dir and tried again. Same results.
In the end, I tried running it as Windows 98, no success either.

Any ideas to solve my problems?
