The following should fix the functionality of Red Alert 2 on Windows 8 and Windows 10. Please follow the instructions in this thread.

Note that this fix should work with the Origin version of Red Alert 2 as well. Although the ALT+TAB functionality does not work.

That is not limited to the Origin version. Alt-tab is broken by the "8And16BitPriSync" flag used in the compatibility database. Disabling this flag might degrade performance, but alt-tab might work again......
