    I bought their deluxe box thing a few years ago which has all of the games up to that point.

    I'm kinda proud to say I bought every one of the series

    Should do with compatibility mode........? If not, a virtual PC should do it.

    IIRC these all ran fine on Linux/Wine as well - I better test that, just to be sure.
    thanks mattx.

    Keep getting an error with I guess Win API call and have set all exe's to Win95 compat mode.

    Any ideas?

    I used to love playing this on WW chat, wasn't very good at ranked though.

    Cheers

    Try using the setup manager for Red Alert 1 (0.9.8)
    Red Alert: Archive - The best place for all your Red Alert needs.

    Used it this afternoon, worked a treat.

    For multiplayer, add IPX protocal to your network connection.

    Right away sir! For king and country!
