Enter in your "local disk" and go to programm files. Then go to EA Games and then into CNC the First Decade. Then Open the file named:

"Command & Conquer Red Alert (tm) II "

Enter to RA2 Folder and search for a file named:

RA2.exe

When you find it, right click on it and go to it's "Properties".

Switch the tab from "General " to "Compatibility".

Toggle Run as Administrator ON and try running the game. If you still can't, try keeping it on and change the "Run this program in compatibility mode for: " into either:

1)Windows 2000

Or

2)Windows 98/Windows ME.

If the one asks you to insert the disk while it is still inserted switch it ot the other.

The same way you will make RA2: Yuri's Revenge play. Just instead of the properties of the file Ra2.exe

Search the properties of the File Ra2MD.exe and do the same.

Hope this was helpful.
