Can't run The First Decade properly on Windows 10

Recommended Posts

Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert, and Red Alert 2 have been patched already and work perfectly. and I have run the compatibility settings for Generals and Zero hour but nothing works. I'll try the .ini files in each but idk if that will work. my desktop should support the resolution. It can even put out in 4k. I'll try the Tiberian Sun patch see if that works.

Back again. After a bad bit of advice from a Microsoft technician on fixing an issue with my desktop I had to reinstall every single game I had. I followed all directions on here to patch The First Decade and got most of the games running fine. The games still giving me trouble are Firestorm, Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge. Firestorm loads and goes to the menu and I am able to start a campaign but it just goes straight to the load screen and says "unable to read scenario!". for RA2 I applied multiple patches and got rid of the black screen issue but as it gets to the main menu it freezes. no options load, cant move the mouse but the music still plays. for YR when i try to start the game I get an error saying the application cant start correctly with the code 0xc0000142. for Firestorm's issue I looked everywhere but no one seems to know how to fix it.

Try installing the CnCNet installer for YR online play. It has a bunch of automatic compatibility fixes.

Ok, after a full uninstall and reinstall of The First Decade I tried something different and didnt apply TFD Unofficial patch. doing so I applied quick fixes to Red Alert to play the Soviet movies using a RA Launcher, got Tiberian Sun and Firestorm to work using an installer and patcher, got Renegade to work by installing a patch, and installed a patch to Red Alert 2 to fix a black screen issue. The unofficial patch may have done more harm than good in my case. The ONLY game that wont work is Yuri's Revenge now. I click on it to load and it looks like it will start but after a few seconds it just goes back to the desktop with no error message. I tried compatibility settings but nothing seems to work. any ideas?

See the "Handling Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge on Windows 8/8.1/10" section in this guide: http://www.cncnz.com/features/technical-support-help-guides/installing-command-conquer-red-alert-2-yuris-revenge/

I actually got it. I applied the patch and some compatibility settings to all YR executibles and it works just fine now. seems the problems are from that patch for the full collection on Windows 10.
