Problem with older Games
by Achim Königs on Saturday August 5th 2023, 10:33
Odler games, like Red Alert 2 fail to launch. EA App says it needs to be elevated (probably rights elevation) to run them, does something and then shows an error message. There does not seem to be a way to launch the game. At least I did not find a workaround.

Can I investigate this further somehow? Or is this a known problem?
