Hey, guys, hoping you could help me out with something. I recently tried installing Red Alert 2 on Vista, and ran into some problems. The first problem is what I think is causing all the other problems. So I put the cd in, and the installer comes up and starts installing the software. Everything seems to work fine. It goes to 100% progress and exits. But when the installer exits, there is no shortcut on the desktop. Fine, I think, I'll check EA tech support. They say that with Vista, the installer can't put shortcuts on the desktop, but a shortcut goes into the Games folder off the start menu. So I check, and there's the shortcut. So then, I figured I'd go ahead and install Yuri's Revenge. I put the cd in, the installer comes up, and then it tells me that I need to install Red Alert 2 first. I think to myself, I already installed it. This leaves me wondering if the RA2 installer even fully installed the game. I check the registry and nothing is there. I go on EA tech support, and find nothing about the game not registering with the computer, and here I am now, asking for help. Also, I am able to run RA2, but when I start the Allied Campaign, for the first mission when you take control of Tanya, she immediatley just up and dies, and you fail the mission. If you try to restart, she dies even quicker. I'm open to any solutions, because I really just wanted a diversion.
