Hi, I’ve been trying to get RA3 to work with C&C online, but it refuses to open while running the program. The splash screen appears on the screen as normal for about a minute, before closing, and the game not opening.
I’m using the basic steam version of RA3 and have had no problems running the game without C&C online. I have tried all the solutions I've found on the forum including running the launcher in Windows XP compatibility mode, and as an administrator.
I have tried hooking the game, but received no confirmation message despite excluding C&C online from my antivirus, and trying to hook without my antivirus running, however now the desktop shortcut doesn’t work at all, not even bringing up the splash screen anymore, just the 'steam is launching Red alert 3' window for a couple of seconds before closing.
- Windows 7 and RA3 updated to most recent versions
