this one starts but on exit it freezes at a blank ra2 screen, which is different to the freeze on desktop
(for me anyway)

I get the same as Dylhole.
Cool that you're putting effort in resolving this!

I've updated the code, please retry.

If it freezes at a blank main menu screen then it's the same for me and I'm still using the first, pre update version.

RA2 can exit normally when playing on QQ or GameRanger, but not when using the internet or skirmish options. Maybe exploring the way those programs launch RA2 can lead to a more proper fix. Hope this can help a bit, by the way I also mailed you the ra2.txt generated by your launcher.

Is Skirmish affected as well? I always though it was only WOL.

On some occasions it hangs on exit after playing skirmishes. Also the e-mail that I tried to send you with the ra2.txt didn't get delivered to that address for some unknown reason.

Hmm, weird.
Anyway, I don't think the log is useful in this case. Will post an update tomorrow.

Another try: http://xwis.net/temp/Red_Alert-2-0.0.2.exe

This one also has a new screenshot feature. Screenshots get saved to Documents\Red Alert 2 in PNG format.

Still freezes at a blank RA2 main menu same as Dylan.
Also the SS feature is kaput.. No folder was created and screen shots are still saved in the RA2 folder as .pcx.

Looks like you didn't get the updated version.
DylHole: No, it's Ctrl-C in RA2.

Yes I did. I downloaded your installer picked the path as my ra2 folder and expected it would overwrite the previously copied files...
I used ctrl+c to take ss's but no go.

The screenshot feature works fine, but it still hangs at the main menu screen.

Another try. This one will also tell you your NAT type in QM. And it won't tell you your opponent. :p
It'll also open xwis.net instead of any other page when the game opens a webpage.

I still wonder what causes this issue. Maybe it's the WOLAPI version?

Then how did you fix it if you don't know what causes it? What makes you think it's related to WOLAPI?
