I was in Fry's the other day looking at games and came across Red Alert 2. I decided to buy it again since I hadn't played it in a long time, and a friend of mine lost my original copy.

So I get home, try to install it, and right when running the setup.exe, it gives me a system error and a "send error report to Microsoft." So I try changing the compatibility mode on the setup.exe, but all of them just give me a "Please insert the correct CD-Rom." error when I obviously have the CD in there.

Anyone encounter this problem before, or know of anything I can try to fix it?
