Red Alert won`t work in 2K/XP, it says that it wasn`t made to run under NT 5.0. So i set all the compatiblity modes on.

IT STILL WONT RUN!!!

INSTALL
Upon execution of setup you will receive this error message:"Windows 5.0 is currently running. This version of Red Alert is a Windows 95 only product."

To fix:Create a shortcut to setup.exe on the CD, go to properties on the shortcut, then the compatibility tab. Check the box and choose Windows 95. Now install the game!

GAME
Upon execution of the game you will receive this error message:"The procedure entry point SMapLS_IP_EBP_12 could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll"
To fix: Install the 1.08 patch.
IF YOU PLAN ON INSTALLING ANY EXPANSION PACK FOR RED ALERT THEN INSTALL THEM BEFORE INSTALLING THE PATCH!

Now go to the Red Alert directory, create a shortcut for RA95.exe, go to properties, then the compatibility tab, Check the box and choose Windows 95.

Now play the game!
