Changed resolution in generals and now I cant get back into game

I’m running the game on the virtual drive. I set the resolution to the max and now when I click play it says I dont have new enough directx or video card. I cant turn the reso down without getting past play. thanks. I’ve tryed playing from the CD and I still get the same message. I’ve tryed uninstall and reinstall on the C drive and still same message. I am going to try delete from the image folder and then remake the image.

In folder “My Documents” there is folder “Command and Conquer Generals Data” open it and there is “Options.ini” there under resolution is your resolution.
