Hi,

 

I am running RA3 on steam, version 1.12 and I cannot connect online.OS is Windows 10 pro.

I installed C&C:Online launcher. Trying to start Red Alert 3 through it, I encountered "CA public key patching routine failed".

Setting the launcher exe to be run in compatabillity mode win7 and to always run as admin fixed this issue.

 

However I cannot launch RA3 through the launcher and there is no error message.

If the game is unhooked, trying to launch RA3 through the launcher, steam seems to indicate that RA3 starts for a second before stopping without any error message.

RA3.exe is run as admin.

 

CNCOnline_Log.txt contains the following:

----- C&C:Online Launcher Start -----
Game: Red Alert 3
Red Alert 3 Install Path: E:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Command and Conquer Red Alert 3\
Started game with: "RA3.exe "
Caught CREATE_PROCESS_DEBUG_EVENT from Red Alert 3. Detaching...
Found game.dat process. PID 2488
*** Starting CA public key patching routine ***
CA public key is expected value.
Successfully patched CA public key.
*** Starting hostname hooking routine ***
Injecting DLL into game.dat process...
Result of injection: Code -1073741582

 

Hooking the game prevents it from being launched at all. It can't be run from either the launcher, shortcut or steam.

CNCOnline_Log.txt contains the same messages.

 

Finally starting the game, then launching it through the launcher sends me back into the game. However, trying to login I get the error message "couldnt connect to backend server".

 

Running the game without admin rights doesnt change the behaviour. Unhooked, the game still can't be started from the launcher and if it's hooked it can't be launched at all.

 

Now the error log contains the following:

----- C&C:Online Launcher Start -----
Game: Red Alert 3
Red Alert 3 Install Path: E:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Command and Conquer Red Alert 3\
Started game with: "RA3.exe "
Caught CREATE_PROCESS_DEBUG_EVENT from Red Alert 3. Detaching...
ERROR: game.dat process not found.

 

Thank you for your time and consideration.
