Will Red Alert 2 work on Windows 10?

Question

Hello, if I were to buy the collection for 5.99 on origin, will it work on Windows 10? I want to get it so that I can download Yuri's revenge since there is no free Red Alert 2 download.

 

Thanks,

 

Naiked

Hello,

 

Yuri's Revenge for the large majority will work on Windows 10. That said, CnCNet can never guarantee it, but to the best of our knowledge the CnCNet YR client fixes most incompatibility issues, and we're always here to help if there's a problem.

 

If you never get it to work, I believe EA Origin offer a fair refund policy (You'll need to confirm this with EA).

 

Thanks

Thanks for the reply, so we do not have a confirmation that Red Alert 2 from the ultimate collection pack works on Windows 10 yet?

It works for me personally and a lot of others (using the CnCNet software).

So I buy this and download it from Origin, then come on to Cnc and download Yuri's revenge and it works just fine? Doesn't Yuri's come with the Ultimate Collection on Origin?

YR works for me on W10. The only issue I have is that I can't open the menu while in-game. You can change it so that works, but then you can't alt tab.

 

I just use an old machine to play this game instead.

CnCNet extends your Origin installation to install compatibility fixes and Skirmish/Online play.

So you got the Ultimate Collection and downloaded Yuris on CnC and it works for you on Windows 10?

Ahhh okay, well I think I am going to go for it. And pray that it works. I will be in touch with you Grant if I have any issues for help. I appreciate your time. By the way if we can get this to work I stream on twitch so it would be great advertising for the game.

A lot of users online are running 7, 8 or Windows 10,  even a small margin on XP. Any problems you can ask us.

 

Even if that fails, I believe EA Origin offer refunds if you can't get the game to work.

You're out of luck there. Windows 10 permanently gutted the DRM system used by these games, so I'm not sure there's any way to do it.

It's nothing to do with DRM. I re-enabled SafeDisc on my Windows 10 laptop, and I can run TS and YR installers, but not RA2.

 

The only way to install RA2/YR from the discs, without downgrading to an earlier OS or purchasing TFD/TUC, is here: http://forums.cncnz.com/topic/19497-original-ra2yr-cds-vs-windows-10/?p=225594

That's already far from trivial though  :huh:

I know, but that still doesn't help run the RA2 installer. That was my point :P
