Try the last one first - Try running the ?Program Compatibility Wizard? in WinXP as this game is Pre-XP

As I've said in another post, both the original Red Alert (pre Tiberian Sun) and Red Alert 2 (which came after) are XP compatible. I haven't played Tiberian Sun, but this situation does seem a bit strange.

thanks for your posting yes I think it is strange but I dont know whats causing the problem. I thought it was to do with drivers but I have the latest drivers. I have to use control alt and delete to close the game down.

Install the game, then run the compatibility wizard.
