In Topic: Game closes when try to log in online

Sorry I can't help much there; the DLL you need differs from setup to setup, last I heard.

Happy testing:






I'm not sure if there are more, but one thing you could do is install CnCNet somewhere; its installation comes with a bunch of DLLs hidden in a folder and you just need to rename to ddraw.dll or dxwnd.dll. I'm not sure when to use which, but who knows, maybe your explosive cocktail of ddraw and dxwnd, whose names should've been swapped, works and doesn't nuke your Lose10.

Good idea, but a better idea would be to get a DDraw DLL that doesn't make the game murder itself when you accidentally hit the Lose key.
I hear fixing that problem also solves Alt+Tab problems too.

You will need to say when exactly it crashed/froze so we can help.


It makes a difference if you were playing single-player skirmish when the game froze/crashed or single-player campaign, tho in the case it happens in both the issue(s) are the exact same.

See if the game also crashes when trying to play an ordinary skirmish, offline match. If it does, then something's wrong with your installation.


If the crash happens when logging in, you credentials or the game's memory of them might be faulty. Or your game is being blocked by your firewall/anti-virus.

In Topic: xwis.dll missing

To anyone interested: some anti-virus programs see XWIS.DLL as a threat. I believe it was a "trojan", but I'm not sure.


Case-in-point: it's your anti-virus being a tad too sensitive. xwis.dll is a "false positive" the same way Syringe.exe and Ares.dll are also false positives.

You can fix it by excluding your XWIS/games folder(s) from its scans/protections.


If your anti-virus doesn't support that option, then uninstall it and go for Comodo instead. Or Avira. Or something...


Once your XWIS installation is excluded from anti-virus scans, reinstall XWIS. Or ask the admins here to put it on a thread and pin that thread. Maybe this one too so people don't end up asking the same question over and over.
