CNC Zero Hour

Second minimizing crashes zh with "serious error"

I found out that minimizing crash only happens on FHD (1920x1080).
I have tried 4 lower resolutions, which let me minimize several times without crashing:

ReleaseCrashInfo file from the documents folder of zh:

3 Sidenotes:
Game on Origin Windows 10.
The last resolution choice (in first img) is not in order.
And the first minimizing (alt-tabbing) with the "buggy" FHD always highlights zh in taskbar (that does not happen with the resolutions which let me alt-tab endlessly):

You should try running the game in windowed-fullscreen, it's the best of both worlds, lets you alt tab instantly and it's still fullscreen.

I tried, but Origin forces the direct .exe start, so you can't have a shortcut with commands.
And putting -win in Origins advanced launch options has no effect.

I have seen third party programs making that possible, but I prefer waiting for a Gentool update.
Because as I wrote it only happens with FHD, although the few lower settings are from Gentool too,
so I guess it is just a small bug.

I don't own Windows 10. I also don't have a second monitor to debug fullscreen. Don't wait for a GenTool change for this.

I am not sure what Bibbers installer does, but here are the proper executables for copy & paste:

xezon, is the file in your link safe to use?
Scanning Generals.exe from zip (zh104) for viruses gives the following result:
