    Problem running games( command and conquer & SUP COM)


    Hi all, I have copied my games from my Windows 7 pc to my Windows 8 laptop, but allot of my games aren't working, I have noticed that the games I'm trying to run don't have compatibility tab under the properties tab. I own these games through steam, and LAN versions, the steam version runs fine the LAN versions gives me problems running, I have tried running in compatibility mode, administrator and the results are always the same, the mouse cursor shows the computer is busy working, under task manager it shows the process, then after a few seconds the process disappears.

    The games in question is, Supreme commander: forged alliances and Command and conquer tiberium war.

    Can the problem be because I'm running W8 enterprise?
