RA2 installation won't start

Question

Hi

I have an original red alert CD set (allied disk, soviet and yuri's revenge) and have a windows 7 64-bit on a PC.

When I click install from the auto-run or directly click on the setup.exe nothing happens, not even an error message.
I have tried running as administrator and with xp sp3 and 98 compatibility . No matter what I do nothing happens each time.

I read a few posts and even tried to delete and reinstall MS-KB3086255
And still nothing happens....


Can anyone help me please?

Thanks!

I know you're talking about the physical copy, and my fix it's buy a digital copy the Origin's collection, I've hold games that don't have support or work barely on Windows Vista > getting the new oficial can be the easiest solution, Sadly you only can buy the Command & Conquer™ The Ultimate Collection or you could try to talk on Origin Support and supply your CD-Key and see if they can help you, I had my case where i supply my First Decade and got the Ultimate Collection. This one way i can help you with.

      Hello All,
      I am brand new to this site but I hope someone can assist me.  I have just downloaded the Command and Conquer Ultimate Collection so I can start playing my favorite games again.  However I am coming a crossed an issue with the compatibility mode and what settings I need them to have.  I am getting all the audio, but none of the visual for the game.  The screen is shrinking to the size of the screen from the game from my memory, the audio like I said is there, even the large mouse courser mark is there, but the visual is not.  I'm pretty sure Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge, the games I'm currently working on installing first, run on XP and Vista so I believe I have the operating system down, but not the visual settings needed.  I currently have an HP Windows 10 computer with Intel CORE i5 7th gen processor.  I don't know if that is really needed info but wanted to have it out there just in case.  Please help me so I can start playing the games I love from my younger days.  Thank you.

      I was stupid and I thought I needed a specific version for the installation for mental omega to function and installed an manual update and now I cant join any CnCnet lobbies without being flagged a cheater, it forces CnCnet to update to patch 4.27. I have tried reinstalling, new folder, turning off cloud save and uninstalling and reinstalling and Im just stuck, Any Suggestions?
      I also have a backup of red alert 2 on my USB harddrive and tried to use that even that didnt work. 
      I still got an fresh red alert 2 folder just in case.
      edit: The Version I tried to patch to was version 1.001
