CnCNet 5 does not connect for me



I downloaded "Red Alert 1 Installer" and installed it.  When I launch Red Alert, the Game Lobby comes up, but it says "Connecting..." and nothing else happens after that.  I have opened up the ports in the Window Firewall as instructed in another Forum post, but that did not help.

I am running Windows 8.  I installed Red Alert 1 on my two other PCs running Windows Vista and everything works fine, so my router must be okay.


We were previously running the old game lobby on all 3 PCs in my house without any problems.  Anyone have any ideas.

That would be a possibly except that I have the same security programs on the other two PCs that work fine.

Except of course for the Windows 8 Firewall.  I would think once turned off, that it would be really off, but I'll trying disabling and rebooting.

Oh well.  Uninstalling all my security programs and disabling the firewall did not help.

Something in the new CnCNet 5 doesn't like my Win8 configuration.  Never had problems with the old version on Win8...

Maybe someone will uncover something in the future. 


Thanks to all for the suggestions.
