simple enough,im tryna play red alert 3 with ma mate (coop campaign/FFA) and we were just trying this site,now when i try to launch red alert 3 from the special launcher it displays that error message and heres the error log

 
----- C&C:Online Launcher Start -----
Game: Red Alert 3
Red Alert 3 Install Path: C:\Users\IT\Desktop\red alert 3\Red Alert 3\
ERROR: CreateProcess() failed to start C:\Users\IT\Desktop\red alert 3\Red Alert 3\RA3.exe. Error: The system cannot find the path specified.
 
 
ERROR: Unable to launch Red Alert 3
i know the problem is that it knows the path for the desktop shortcut instead of the path for the original .EXE,but i dont see any way of manually changing the paths,read multiple forums all had adminstration problems/un replied forums, help is appreciated since we were planning a tournament that should start not too far from now,thanks in advance

Have you hooked the game? If you haven't the launcher should be getting the executable path from the system registry and not a short cut. Does the shortcut work?

I tell you what, if the shortcut works to launch the game (without C&C:Online) and you are able to provide the "target" or "start in" directory (right click the shortcut and go to "properties"), I might have a better way of helping you.     Please be sure to unhook the game (from the hook menu on the launcher) first.

The solution is experimental, so we don't provide it unless it is appropriate and only on a closed basis.
