Win 10 64bit



Hi all, 
Old player from xwis.
*Same ign till now.
**i am able to play on my laptop (win 7), and also go in the "current" server for online games...maybe some had seen me in game..

So, recently bought a new desktop.
No way to even install RA2 on it, not to mention YR.

Scenario 1 
After putting that disc in, it have that pop up saying "Warning....."
 After i click install, nothing happens.
I am using the original disc purchased some 20 years back.
Had tried compatibility mode.(To win xp sp3)

i hv googled, tried few ways but all failed.

Method 1
Saw some mentioned...go xwis and download from a link posted by Olaf year back.
It installed, but keep getting black screen, game hang..
*I tried to install YR using disc, it says that they cannot detect the RA2 in my C drive, westwood folder.

*So i tried shifting that whole file and created a Westwood folder..it still does not allow me to install...

Method 2
Saw another link>>
The "run, regedit, to >> Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Secdrv"
Did manage to reach that file but was afraid computer spoil. Do not dare to do anything.
*Am not good in computer.

So, like i mentioned, i am able to play on my laptop (giving up on me soon), it is just "this desktop" i am at my wits end.

Any step by step guide?

Thanks In Advance.

Use method 1 and install both RA2 and Yuri from xwis + Install CnCNet client.

Run the client - go options and pick renderer suitable for your PC. For that you need to try to run the skirmish game from client.  Minimize-maximize it and quit after that. Find which renderer does not give you black screens and errors on the game finish. Save settings. Close the client.

After that RA2 and YR should work fine.

You can copy mission and video files from your disks into game folder to play campaigns.

      As the title says, whenever I try to launch the CnCNet launcher for Yuri's Revenge, it opens up the Mental Omega launcher.

      I'm doing some video stuff with Yuri's Revenge and every time I try to open the XCC Sound Editor that comes inside the XCC Mixer, the program just closes itself and won't let me do anything. I only need to extract some audios from langmd.mix\audiomd.mix\audio.bag as wave files to put them into a video.
      I'm using XCC Utilities 1.47 and surprisingly with older versions like 1.12 or 1.40 the issue won't happen, but I can't read Yuris Revenge, only Red Alert 2.
      Any idea of what could be causing this and any solution?
      Thanks in advance.
