Which Version do you use? Did you try to run it in compability mode and as an Admin? Do you have a vpn?

First of all, 

Is this a new issue? I mean, were you able to log in sometime before today?

 

Secondly,

(see the above post).

 

Thirdly,

Have you run into this problem after doing software/hardware updates?


Please! Please! try Windscribe free VPN to see if it fixes all of your ZH-Online connection issues!

You shouldn't use the C&C:Online launcher to launch Generals or Zero Hour.   If you are playing only those games, you should unhook and uninstall the C&C:Online launcher and install GenToolWhen you have done that, you just launch the game from its ordinary shortcut.     If you are using the Ultimate Collection, you should install this first; C&C Ultimate Collection Launchers.

Have you ever logged online before?

If not, you need to download Gentool from www.gentool.net, it will connect you to the new online servers (old ones died ages ago), to log in, you need your revora details.

 

If you have logged in before then your problem is probably your IP address being changed by using VPNs or some other servers, to change this, go to your game options and find your IP, choose a different one.
