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!

      Hello everyone, I was very happy that I had found a command, to enable Trigger triggers, [IsCoopMode = Yes], and when I go out to edit the map, and Skirmish game, boom, goodbye game. Suddenly everything was crashed and this error came out, what could it be?
       

       
      I miss the game when there are 2 AI created manually, no matter what I do crashes, some solution to this or this has no solution ?.

      Any decent guides on modding RA1?  Also i'm after a decent Map Maker.  I used to use final alert back in the day and you could generate a map from a .bmp image.  Are there any map editors for RA1 that do the same?  I have seen the sticky thread on links but the Red alert 1 link is dead.
      Thanks in advance.

      This is a solution to become a CnCNet host server in linux servers that have systemd for service control (Debian, Ubuntu,...):
      Do it as a root or add 'sudo' before every command:
       
      apt-get install libmono-system-core4.0-cil mono-runtime useradd -m cncnet wget -O /home/cncnet/cncnet-server.exe http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet-server.exe chown cncnet:cncnet /home/cncnet/cncnet-server.exe wget -O /etc/systemd/system/cncnet.service https://files.catbox.moe/z7y3nd.service # Change 'my new name server' to your own server name sed -i 's/My cool server/my new name server/g' /etc/systemd/system/cncnet.service systemctl daemon-reload systemctl enable cncnet.service systemctl start cncnet.service Make a service is better than crontab for auto start solution!

      Checking for updates screen appears and does nothing.
      Then I get a dialog box that says:
      "Update failed... Please check your connection, Anti-Virus and Firewall settings!
      The operation has timed out"
      I have turned off the virus and firewall and the same thing happens.
      Funkyfresh helped me a few weeks ago with the last update.
      If memory serves, he gave me a direct link but I can't remember exactly.
      I have already tried http://downloads.cncnet.org/updates/cncnet5/CnCNet5Version.txt and http://downloads.cncnet.org/updates/cncnet5/ and https://downloads.cncnet.org/updates/cncnet5/ with no love (403 Forbidden).
      Also while joining a game with a map that I don't have, it fails to download the new map so I can't play on any new maps either.

      Please help.
