How to run C&C: Red Alert 2 on Win10 v1909?

Since this game is using obsolete DirectDraw technology, it lags hard on systems newer than Win7. I tried using a Aqrit's wrapper but if I try to play game in resolution bigger than 640x480, the game is rendered in upper left corner, which bugs me :/

Game runs smooth, but is still rendering in upper left corner and if I try to change resolution in ddraw.ini file the game won't render playfield at all :(

edit: Thankfully, GPU drivers update fixed that
