Windows 10 is not supported for YR. Once Windows 10 launches I'm 100% sure the community will find workarounds for YR and other old C&C titles.

It's a problem shared with Windows 8/8.1 (not surprising).

RE: Windows 10 Problem Yuri's Revenge
I came here looking for answers to this, and since then have found out a few things.

First, you'll probably find in the System Event Log these 2 errors -

Service Control Manager - Event ID 7000
Code:
The Secdrv service failed to start due to the following error:
This driver has been blocked from loading

Application Popup - Event ID 1060
Code:
The description for Event ID 1060 from source Application Popup cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

\??\C:\WINDOWS\SysWow64\drivers\SECDRV.SYS

the message resource is present but the message is not found in the string/message table


These errors are due to a lack of SafeDisk drivers for Windows 10. A lot of older CDs had this copy protection, and the driver was included with earlier versions of Windows. I do not know if it can be copied from a Win 8.1 64bit system, but at this point the only work-around I've found was to install a no-cd update/crack, and copy over the .mix files from the original CD.

I hope this helps, and please update if you find any other solutions as this was one of the few helpful searches that popped up when I was looking for answers.

Just a general FYI, the installers at CnCNet have been updated for Windows 10.

Now that's what I call good investigation. You can at least try to copypaste the driver, I'll try to do so from Windows 7.

TS-DDRAW wrappers will fix it. You can google some to find, or use an installer like CnCNet that will patch it for you - http://cncnet.org/yuris-revenge

RE: Windows 10 Problem Yuri's Revenge
hey guys,

Please help, every time I play a skirmish game on Yuri's Revenge under my windows 10 laptop it crashes right in the middle of a match. Please help. I tried playing with the compatibility area and not sure what else I can really do.
