Command & Conquer Remastered Collection not working is an issue that some players have been experiencing since the game came out. If you have a problem with playing a game Command & Conquer Remastered Collection, there are a few things you can do. Here is how to fix this problem.
An incomplete installation is likely to produce crashes or other issues on Command & Conquer. Make sure that your game files are not corrupt or missing. You can check it as follows:
- Go to the Steam library
- Right-click on Command & Conquer Remastered Collection
- Select Properties.
- Go to the LOCAL FILES tab
- Press the VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME FILES button.
- Go to My Game Library
- Right-click on C&C Remastered Collection
- Select Repair
Please ensure the appropriate Anti-Virus and Firewall exceptions are in place for Command & Conquer. As far as I can see, especially Avast is one of the antivirus software that prevents the game from opening.
You should also check other applications running in the background. Examples include MSI Afterburner, RTSS Rivatuner Statistics Server.
You should make sure that Redistributable Packages are installed on your Windows.
Go to the official Microsoft page and download the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package and Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015.
Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86): https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8328

Download and install both x86 and x64. Reinstall even if they are already installed.
