I'm using Windows 10 64 Bit. I have RA3 and the expansion installed though Origin, command and conquer 17 titles package.


When I start the C&C Online launcher and start RA3 I get the error:



Missing file required ssleay.dll


I read in the forum that a couple of other people have had the same problem (eg https://forums.revor...+ssleay32dll)so I am posting this here as requested.


Can you please solve this problem for me?

According to the troubleshooter this may be caused by accidentally forgetting to hook the game through the launcher.

The hook function can be found in the Launcher's Menu on top called "Hook".

After that, close the launcher and start the game. It should open CNC Online Launcher instead, then click on Red Alert 3 button. It should work now.

- When I launch my game, I'm getting the following error: Missing Required file "Ssleay32.dll". 
Solution: You will have to use the Hook option to hook the games you want to play. Use the Hook menu to hook your games, then use the game's own shortcut to start the launcher and use C&C:Online. Also make sure to disable your antivirus for the hooking.
