hi
i became nostalgic and wanted to play this old game Yuri's Revenge (expansion of Red Alert 2)..
so i install Red Alert 2, but it doesn't show up in my programs list; and to patch it, i have to manually browse to the folder where it's installed. im assuming this is caused by not installing something into the Windows Registry..
then i tried to install Yuri's Revenge, and it gave me an error "Red Alert 2 not detected" .

can anyone help me?
thanks in advance.

no it doesn't show up in the add/remove programs..doesn't show up anywhere, except C:\Westwood.
basically during the isntallation all it does is copy the files from the cd and nothing else.

i deleted all files, deleted any registry entries, unplugged ethernet cable, turned off a/v, then reinstalled RA2.
still no success.
doesnt appear in programs list, doesn't appear in add/remove programs.
can't launch game by browsing to the exe file.
:sigh:

yes, it is a legit copy
it was given to me by a friend 5 or 6 years ago, not a burned copy, but the original copy.
but i don't see how that affects the installation
