need help with Red Alert 2

Question

Hello, I bought the Command & Conquer Ultimate Collection on Origin but like some of you may have already heard, when I try to play Red Alert 2 it doesn't even launch. I'm on Windows 10, I have already installed the CnCNet application and tried some options I found online but nothing seems to work. I would really appreciate if anyone could help me with it.
 
Thanks!

After you install cncnet into the Origin game directory it will patch the original game. When it doesn't work (as in your case), you should open cncnet and in the Options->Display menu, set the renderer to cnc-ddraw.

      Hello there, i can't update game client, it said an dll can't be downloaded and to verify if firewall is blocking the client or to get help from forum, so here i am.
      I checked firewall and even created new rules so i'm 200% firewall will not block it. I know firewall have 2 panel, one where you just have to check some box to say ALLOW and another where you have to create firewall rule. It doesn't work, i have another pc where i get the update(Client update, archive, upload to drive then to my original pc).

      New forum member here, so please forgive me if I don't provide all the information needed on the first go-around here.
      I recently purchased Command and Conquer the Ultimate Collection from EA, installed Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge (and turned off the Origin overlay). I then downloaded and installed the CNCNet installer for YR, all of which went fine. When I open the CNCNet YR launcher, the menu screen comes up fine, and it says version 7.7 is available, so I tell it to go ahead and patch. It downloads a bunch of files, but when it gets to "Maps\Yuri's Revenge\xmp20mw.map", it fails with the message in the attached screenshot.
      I've tried the following things so far, to no avail:
      Going to Options -> Updater -> Force Update Renaming the .map file it's trying to download (it already exists in my YR maps directory) to something else so it hopefully wouldn't conflict when computing checksums. Uninstalling and re-installing the CNCNet YR program. I've also attached my logs, in case those help. I'm really at a loss here as to what to try next, honestly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi,
      I'm having issues with my client. It was working fine, but for some reason it isn't allowing me now to continue with the games because it keeps crashing. Also, it isn't adding any 'underscores' next to my name, but is only bringing me back to the lobby.
      Any advise on this, please?
      Thanks.
