barebonesone, are you trying to run the "The Ultimate Collection" tile? This doesn't do much. To play each game, make sure your origin is set to show all games, and download whichever C&C game you wish to play, and launch from there.

 


Greiner, is this only happening for RA2? try ensuring that you have things running in Compatibility Mode, and that you have everything on your computer up-to-date.

Yes so far I have only experienced this with RA2. 

 

I figured out my issue after installing on my win7 machine. A required reboot is supressed in win8. After rebooting my win8 machine I now have RA2 working. 

 

Also quick question how do I exit the movies? I have not found a way to exit out of the movies.

That's good to hear. It's been an age since I played, and I love those cheesy movies so never skipped them anyway but I thought you could skip with Esc. If it's just the opening movie, this is unskippable the first time, but will be skippable when you go back to it later.
