Red Alert crashing issues





Command & Conquer: The First Decade



Okay... 4 processor machine.

Windows 7

I have patch 3.03 RA

I have 1.03 Tfd patch

I have used the Set Affinity trick

I have also used the, with advice from web admin, have downloaded the separate Red Alert program.


It keeps on crashing. It will happen during gameplay on the seperate

On the original it would do that...do that..do that..do that..l.. :LOOP in sound crash. It would also just crash sometimes.

Here's what worked for me. 


1.  Find the game install folder.  For First Decade, it should be something like:

        C:\Program Files\EA Games\Command & Conquer The First Decade\Command & Conquer Red Alert

2.  Search for string *.exe

3.  For every .exe file found in the folder, individually -

          a.  Right click and select properties

          b.  On the Compatibility tab -

                    i.  Set for Windows 98 / ME

                    ii.  Select Run as administrator


After I did this for every .exe file in the folder, the game seems substantially more stable
