First and Foremost, I read the common issues and solution thread before writing this and the solution offered for my issue didn't work.
Game Version: Command & Conquer 3 Deluxe Edition (Tiberium Wars) DVD
Operating System: Windows 10 Professional x64 (Upgraded from Windows 7 Professional x64)
Issue: missing required file "ssleay32.dll" with or without the hook inplace.
W/O the Hook from the C&C Online Launcher inplace, I am able to launch Tiberium Wars directly from the desktop.
W/ the Hook from the C&C Online Launcher in place, I am unable to launch Tiberium Wars via the desktop shortcut.
Got the launcher to work with my origin edition of the same game
