Installing downloaded maps for Red Alert 3 is very easy, just pick your operating system, Windows 7/Vista or XP and follow the instructions below.....

How to install Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 maps - Windows 7/Vista Users:


To install the maps if your using Windows Vista, simply extract the contents of the downloaded .zip file to your C:\Users\[USER LOGIN NAME]\AppData\Roaming\Red Alert 3\Maps\MAPNAME folder on your hard drive. The MAPNAME will of course be the name of the map. EG if a map was called "MoscowWars" you would extract contents of the .zip file to the C:\Users\[USER LOGIN NAME]\AppData\Roaming\Red Alert 3\Maps\MoscowWars\ folder. Some zip files might be set up so the folder is created for you when you unzip it.


How to install Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 maps - Windows XP Users:


To install the maps if your using Windows XP, simply extract the contents of the downloaded .zip file to your C:\Documents and Settings\[USER LOGIN NAME]\Application Data\Red Alert 3\Maps\MAPNAME folder on your hard drive. The MAPNAME will of course be the name of the map. EG if a map was called "MoscowWars" you would extract contents of the .zip file to the C:\Documents and Settings\[USER LOGIN NAME]\Application Data\Red Alert 3\Maps\MoscowWars\ folder.

You can also try this to locate your RA3 maps folder

From the desktop, click on Computer, in the location bar at the top of the window, right click and select edit address. Copy and paste the following into the location bar....

%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Red Alert 3\Maps

As you can see from the screen shot sample below it should be there. Its the only location. Because your "Roaming" folder stores information for many other games and programs installed on your computer.

If your still having problems, you might want to try the Command & Conquer Map Folder Opener available at http://www.cncmaps.c...?showtopic=4229

There some possible solutions you could try in this thread on the EA forums http://forum.ea.com/...st/9029551.page, it involves creating some folders and missing registry keys. The missing registry keys problems seems to be an on going issue with the Ultimate Collection pack. I don't have the Ultimate Collection versions of any C&C games installed, just the original release version so I can't test any of this.
