Hello, following the instructions on a previous thread which states to make my own post:

 

CA public key patching routine failed.

 

I have ra3 through steam and I have a Windows 10 computer. This error showed up when I tried to run Red Alert 3 on the C&C:Online launcher. It would try to run Ra3 and then give this error.

In the FAQ its says to run it in windows xp compatibility mode.  How do you put it in compatibility mode?

What are you refering to for running windows xp compatibility mode? CnC online or Red Alert 3?

 

Which FAQ are you refering to?

 

To run compatibility mode for a program:

 

find the program's ".exe" file and right click -> click on properties -> look for the compatibility tab in the properties window -> check "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" -> select "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)" from the drop down menu.

So I guess I'm not getting any help on this then? No PMs or anything.

 

 

Edit 1: I tried to run it in compatibility mode from the desktop shortcut (Don't know where C&C Online installs to). Neither Windows XP service pack 2 or 3 worked following these instructions:

 

- When I launch my game using the C&C:Online launcher, I get the following error: "CA public key patching routine failed"
Solution: Try setting the launcher to Windows XP compatibility mode.

 

 

Edit 2: I finally added C&C Online to my bypass for the Windows 10 Firewall. Still having the same issue.

 

I also created a shortcut from steam and Hooked the game. Kane's wrath works fine but RA3 does not.

 

Will try to get an error log but have to figure out how to do that.
