Red Alert 2 error: ***FATAL**** String Manager failed to initialize properly

★★★★ Novice

I just bought Red Alert 2 & the rest(17 game pack), download went well. installed but it comes up with a error, 'Fatal String manager failed to initiate, I have my original disk and they would not work with Win 7 Ultimate either, these say they have been fixed to work with Win 7, not even in compatibility mode, would appreciate a quick response, ty.

 I've had a support question in the forums for 7 days already and not a single response from EA staff, this does not look good guys, either help me get it fixed or refund me my money back and remove them from my account, I already had red alert2 from when it first came out and those would not work either so I bought the one YOU guys say will work with Win7, so lets get this bad puppy up and running, OK?

 

note:I have tried to install the 1.3b patch and it still will not work

I am having the same problem as well. I already have all the C&C games in one form or another and bought this specifically because I was led to believe RA2 and YR would work on my new computer. I would very much like to know what I need to do in order to play these on Win 7

Try right clicking Ra2.exe and clicking 'run as administrator'
