CnCnet kaboom error on windows 7 virtual machine

Question

I installed CnCnet for command and conquer red alert 2 and yuri's revenge on a 32-bit windows 7 virtual machine executed through virtualbox. I already installed microsoft .net framework 4.0 and the experimental 3D accelerator of the guest installer. This is the error I get when trying to play CnC net.

Because I want to play CnCnet yuri's Revenge on linux and knowing that getting the game running in newer OSs is a hell, I can't imagine how would be for linux, let alone if it's even possible. If I want to play, it has to be on a virtual machine. For now I can play every other linux available CnC with its respective CnCnet installation.  Red Alert 2 on the other hand, is elusive.
EDIT:
It finally worked, it looks like I didn't install the 3D accelerator(?) correctly. For other people that may have this problem in the future, make sure, when you install the guest additions, to install the experimental 3D Accelerator, not the one the installer recommends you. To do this, run the installer on secure mode and check no when the recommendation prompt appears. Thanks to the CnC team for bringing back to life such an awesome game.

There are no problems with newer OSes anymore.

And you could try installing the snap package by  `snap install cncra2yr `

(The snap is not officially supported by us and it doesn't work for me)

      I have Windows 8.1 and uninstalled the KB to allow me to install RA2 and YR. I should have all the EXEs set to Run as Administrator and Windows XP SP3 compatibility. I went into RA2.ini and RA2MD.ini and, following internet instructions, changed the Video settings in both files to this (1920x1080 is the resolution my monitor is set to):
      [Video]
      ScreenWidth=1920
      ScreenHeight=1080
      StretchMovies=no
      VideoBackBuffer=no
      When I go into Red Alert 2, the game opens in full screen but the actual game contents are only in about half the screen (centered). To click any of the menu options I have to click off to the side. In other words, the click points aren't on the same resolution as the display.
      When I go into Yuri's Revenge, the game opens in full screen and actually shows all the game contents in full screen. The menu buttons all click in the right places. When I start a game, everything there is in full screen too. However, I'm not able to scroll all the way to the right nor all the way to the bottom. The cursor simply wont go past a certain point, thus preventing me from clicking on a bunch important game components, like creating units.
      Is there a maximum resolution RA2 and YR can handle? Or is there some other issue here?
