Red Alert 1 Will Not Start

Question

I just installed Red Alert 1 from cncnet and the game wont start.

If I double click ra95.exe nothing happens. If I use RA95Launcher the launcher screen opens, but if I click "play offline" it closes and the game does not open. If I choose skirmish, then Launch Game the window minimizes for a few seconds then returns to normal without the game starting. In none of these cases is there any a Red Alert in my Task Manager.

I have Windows 8.1

No error messages or anything? Have you tried rebooting?

No error messages or anything, but I should know better than to report any error without first rebooting and trying again - that fixed it.

Yesterday it didn't work
Today it does
Windows is still that way

It is a really weird problem that has recently started happening. Game refuses to launch on install, but a reboot fixes it.

It's almost like modern Windows wants to pretend it is Win95/Win98 :P

Glad the reboot fixed it!

      Had cncnet open. Then it closed. Tried relaunching and it says cannot open because of virus or unwanted file. Have the installer, so tried that, and it said after going through the process, getting all the updates and extracting that it was missing a file couldnt complete the action. 
       
      Cant download new installer because it says virus detected/unwanted file.
      Any help would be appreciated

      HI there,
      I am absolutely new here and I have an issue I hope some experts here can help me with.
      I am trying to play some matches Red Alert with CnCNet.
      After the game starts from the CnCNet client , I see the game but it is stopped and a countdown starts.
      It says: Waiting for connections......
      Time Allowed: 20 seconds
      Press ESC to cancel

      Screenshot
      After 20 seconds the game ends and I get back to the CnCNet client..
      I tried to whitlist cncnet and ra95 to the firewall, I tried to disable the firewall, both things didnt help.
      Why? How? 

      -Thanks
