Red Alert Crash

I have an Apple 100mhz Pentium card installed in my Powermac. I am trying to run Red Alert, Win95 edition (DOS works fine) and when I double-click it, the screen goes black, and for a while the hourglass cursor can be moved, and about 5-10 seconds later, that cursor freezes too and the entire computer goes down (no ctrl-alt-delete possible) I am using an ATI Mach64 graphics card and an AppleVision 1705 monitor. All my drivers state that they are "certified" under the DirectX install (3.0 and 2.0-i've tried them both) and I have tried all the settings under the little setup program in Red Alert, but I have the same problem. (my sound card is Creative Labs Soundblaster 16) Help!

I ran Red Alert on a P133 with 32mb and found it took a long time to load approx 30-40 seconds with a blank screen, maybe you just need to leave if for a minute or so, stranger things happen

...unfortunately many games arent compatible with mac-emulators, could be that redalert is one of them....

By any chance, have you got windows power toys installed. If so, then you have to uninstall it first.

My PC card isn't an emulator-it is a true intel chip resting on a PCI card in my computer. But even so, it's not doing so well...

I used to work tech support at VIE (before Red Alert).  However, we had a similar problem with Command and Conquer.

The answer lie in setting up your Windows'95 shortcut correctly.

After setting up the shortcut, right-click on it.  Go to Properties/Program/Advanced and chack the "Prevent MS-DOS Based programs from detecting Windows box"

Next,  click on the Memory tab and change the MS-DOS protected mode DPMI memory setting to 16384.

Save you changes and try it.
