Problem is now fixed, Norton 360 was preventing the hooking from working

I HAVE READ THE HOW-TO THREAD

 

Firstly I am using the Command and Conquer Ultimate Collection on Origin, on Windows 8.1

 

I am able to open CNC online, but when I clicked on any of the games I got the error "missing ssleay32.dll". However I was able to launch the games successfully directly through origin.

 

To try and fix this I installed the fixed launchers. This solved the problem for Red Alert 3, however it has made the problem worse for the other games. If I now try to launch C&C3/Kanes Wrath or Generals/Zero Hour I get the error "the game command and conquer -xxx does not appear to be installed". This happens through Origin and CNC online.

 

I have checked and the games are still fully installed in the usual directory. If i re-install them, it gets rid of the fixed launchers and reverts back to the original issue.

 

This is the error log:

 

----- C&C:Online Launcher Start -----
Game: Kane's Wrath
Kane's Wrath Install Path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Command and Conquer 3 TW and KW\Command Conquer 3 Kanes Wrath\
Started game with: "CNC3EP1.exe "
Caught CREATE_PROCESS_DEBUG_EVENT from Kane's Wrath. Detaching...
ERROR: game.dat process not found.

From the common issues thread, I can advise you to run the C&C:Online program as administrator and use the Hook option you can see in the command bar to the top of the C&C:Online program window.

I have also tried that but it still isn't working, I get the same errors when trying to launch the games.

Thanks, I've added this to to common solutions topic ;)


"To know what question we may reasonably propose is in itself a strong evidence of sagacity or intelligence. For if a question be in itself incongruous and begs for uncalled-for answers, it holds, sometimes, besides embarrassing the proposer, the disadvantage to seduce the unguarded listener into giving absurd answers, and we are presented with the ridiculous spectacle of one (as the ancients said) milking the he-goat, and the other holding a sieve beneath."
