I finally got C&C Red Alert to work in win xp by adding the latest C&C RA Patch and activating compatibility, BUT it seems that C&C RA needs IPX to support networking, without IPX it wont even show the choice of networking, and I want to play C&C RA against my friends. Any ideas?

Basically, once you installed the patch, you effectively removed network support. You can try the tips from this page, but I wouldn't get my hopes up...

Well then I guess that's good news, although I was kind of uncomfortable with the method the way it was described.

why to use a Microsoft made emulator on a Microsoft system: its like using a MS DOS-Emulator on MS DOS !!!! 🤣 🤣 - forgett the virtual pc, its only good for testing and not for working or playing on it

I've been able to install the game, it even runs fine without using the windows 95 compatibility. You can start any mission but after you have been playing for a few minutes the game freezes. Anyone else have this problem? What could it be? 🙁
