YR is volatile on Windows XP. You will need to run the setup under windows 98 compatibility before running it. Even then there's no guarantee that it will work.

Like I said, there's no gaurantee for anything to work and EA Lames didn't bother with a patch.

The main problem is the GAMEMD.EXE file. If you install both RA2 and YR's setup files under Windows 98. it should work. I did this and I got it to work, but the loading times were bad. (about double of what it should be)

I got it to work perfectly but i played Red Alet 2 then installed Yuries Revenge upon beatng the allided disc in Red Alert 2. And yea it takes long time to load when starting up the game. Remindes me of the playstation games in the playstation 2. You would think that sence thir older they would load fast on newer equipment, but nope.

no, in XP you can change the way XP installs the game. Right click on the Setup.exe or/and autorun.exe and click properties. Click on Compatbility, check the box and set the drop down box to Windows 98 / ME

I don't know much about the online play for RA2 or more to the point, the Westwood Services. What you do mean by ' about my username/password , i use same as my RA2' Are you talking about loading Yuri's Revenge and then using RA2s username / password for the online play?

for Red Alert 2 to play online you make an account, after you register, you can also use this account with yuri

Yuri starts perfect and plays perfect too! but when i try to play online as i said before; i press Internet -> asks for my online account ( the one you are askin about) then instead of takin me to the rooms, it takes me back ! it does not log in,
