View Full Version : Red Alert Install Problems

06-09-2008, 10:57 AM
Have gone thru all the steps set out in installation guide after downloading RA1!

Changed compatability and so on, how ever when i start the install it informs me that it is unable to load setup.mix from the cd-rom.

Please help, have scoured all the forums to no avail this seems to be my last hope.

Am running XP sp2.

Hi Lister,
That's an odd one, as you mention no one else seem to have had that problem. It could be an issue with a corrupt download. Try downloading the other disk perhaps?

Any ideas

if the game is burnt to a disk try using RaManager0.98 (A.K.A. TBRA) (http://ra57.cnc-comm.com/download.php?view.38)to install it for you it has the 3.03 patch and the 1.08 patch easy to go back and forth from versions it also has a nocd crack for the 3.03 version of ra ;)

I have the same problem. I'm running mine on a virtual CD, and I've ran on compatibility with everything called "Setup." Help me!
