No suitable graphics card found


Recommended Posts


on my very old computer I installed the CnCNet Client for RA2YR, but when I start, I get the message: "No suitable graphics card found." Is it possible to fix it?

CPU: P4 2.8GHz
RAM: 1.5GB
OS: Windows XP PRO SP3
Microsoft.NET Framework v4.0.30319

sorry for my English (google translator :-) )

Wasn't the new client no longer XP compatible? iirc you needed at least DirectX10 which vista SP2 uses.

On page https://cncnet.org/yuris-revenge is support for Windows XP. I tried run cncnet client on another old PC with GPU Intel 82945G (Windows XP) and no error. All works fine.

Your graphics card only supports directx 8.1, maybe that's why it doesn't work

You're probably right. On this computer I tried a cncnet client about two years ago and I did not have a problem. Maybe this is due to the new version of the Framework 4.0. Red Alert 2 does not need DirectX9, but the CNCnet client probably does. It's a little paradox.


Is there any possibility to use an older client? I find in my backup files cncnet client v2.65, but game list don't show.

I am also having this issue is there any way around it or can someone give me an old client? Because the main reason that I wanted to change to CnCNet is so that I could have an updated LAN game play for the computers that we have been using since the game was brand new. It would really awesome if I didn't have to change most of the computers out just to fix a really really bad designed LAN and to support a nicer picture.

It actually strange that the addon for an old game can't be run on an old hardware

I assure you that it can be run on old hardware. At least for now. :D

I remember getting this error message when I did a clean install of the OS. Something was missing; a driver or something. I don't remember.

I'm not sure what solved it for me, but It says something about the XNA Framework, so perhaps you need to install this:

In case that doesn't solve it, try this one:

Hope that helps. Good luck!
