The noble Atreides, the insidious Ordos and the evil Harkonnen. Only one house will prevail.... This forum is for the discussion of Intelligent Games' C&C inspired recreation of Westwood Studios' Dune 2.
Our installer is neither Red Alert 2 or Yuri's Revenge specifically. It is simply wrapper to fix compatibility issues and also allow you to play multiplayer online. The error you're seeing implies that you do not actually own the game first. You must first purchase and install Red Alert 2 from a reputable source (like Origin).
If you do decide to play online, you can limit the gameplay to Red Alert 2 using an option in the game lobby (skirmish or online play). The checkbox is labeled "Red Alert 2". That will limit countries and units to those in Red Alert 2 only.
When downloading Red Alert 2 it keeps downloading the Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge version and it cant be found because I need to install Red Alert 2 first. How do I just install Red Alert 2 then install Red Alert Yuri's Revenge??
Looks like you installed the game to your "Program Files" directory. You either need to A) run the game as admin or B) install to a directory that is NOT write protected.
IE, install the game to "C:\ra2" or something.
