    It sounds like it's trying to burn to a CD which would be normal for an ISO.

    Try mounting the ISO - ISO Images - Mount or Unmount

    Cheers,
    Jamie

    Have you tried burning it to a CD, i would give that a go and if it still doesn't work maybe the download hasn't gone great or there is a corrupt file etc..

    If your download is / was legal, you bought the software from the company's website, you can always contact them to get your issue resolved.

    If your download is an unofficial pirated copy, according to the forum rules we are not allowed to assist you in working around the game's copyright protection (original CD/DVD required in a drive is common form of copyright protection).

    Hi Jim,

    As Kari has stated, we can not support piracy here as that appears to be the case in your issue, and thus the error you are receiving. As a gamer myself, I looked around the net for a free legitimate copy but found none, so if it is legit, as stated, you'll need to contact them to find out what's going on.

    As to the error, yeah it's more than likely due to the fact that it's missing some files being it appears to be an illegal copy.

    Sorry

    Red Alert 3 : Uprising is 9-99 on steam and I think it was on offer recently for 3-99 or even bundled with more for a donation of 5-00 to humble bundle a little while back..

    A good point.

    A very personal, subjective opinion: I have never understood the paradox, geeks spending hundreds sometimes even thousands to their overclocked monster computers, then pirating the games or other software to be used on those monsters to save a few bucks.

    Only to turn around and get a devastating virus or Trojan killing said system

    Anyway it appears this issue is solved so I'm out.

    Peace
