2. You should al least tell us which game you are trying to play.
2. If you can't read the instructions, nor you can read the pinned threads, then: 1. You need to register an account. 2. You need to download a program. 3. If you are going to play CNC3/KW/RA3, then open that program, click the buttons inside the program you've opened to launch your game. 4. Click that "Online" button inside your game, type your credentials, type your password, click the "Log in" button inside the game.

You could try to reinstall the game (that would fix the registry entries containing game location), or you can edit registry manually:
Press [Win]+R, write regedit in the "Run" prompt and press Enter.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Electronic Arts\Electronic Arts\Red Alert 3
You should see a value called something like "Install path" or "Installation dir", just edit this value.
Extract all files from this zip file CNC.zip1.39MB64 downloads
and run "cnconline.exe" inside it (after having extracted all files, of course)
[It won't help you get online, it will just log information, and please don't use this anymore if you are able to play online, otherwise it may generate a log file of several megabytes after every match]
And use it to start your game.
If it runs correctly, when your game is starting, it should prompt a window displaying the path to a "CNCOnline_InGameLog.txt", which normally should be here: %TEMP%\CNCOnline_InGameLog.txt
Then, try to log into C&C:Online. After your log in attempt, exit game and upload that in-game log, and probably we can find the cause of that problem inside this log file.
If your game crash/doesn't prompt window at start up/or you have other problems with this zip file, please tell me.
Create a another shortcut for C&C:Online (which should point to C:\Program Files (x86) [or just "Program Files" if your OS is 32 bit ]\CNCOnline\cnconline.exe)
Then add parameter " -ui" to the target on that shortcut.
Start C&C:Online Launcher with this shortcut, then start RA3 with your C&C:Online Launcher, and theoretically you'll able to see the RA3 launcher, I don't know if that is its name, anyway it's a window like this:
Click on the replay browser and then click on the "Mod" tag, choose your mod and you'll able to launch your game with mod.
