Windows 7: Problems with red alert 2 / ra2: yuri's revenge

Problems with red alert 2 / ra2: yuri's revenge

Hey there guys!

I'm new here and glad to join this forum. So, as topic says, im having problems with red alert 2. everything works fine, but when i create any map and start building buildings or spawn any tanks game starts to lag, especially when i move my units. Surfed the web for about 4 hours and found some answers that it may be because of directdraw and Direct3d acceleration and some people recommend to deactivate it. But then i saw that with nvidia graphic card it's impossible to do that. By the way, had same problems with Cossacks: Back To War, but then i've found ddraw.dll file and puted in folder and everything seems to work fine . Found also one for red alert 2, but when i launch game everything i see is blackscreen ( for some it may work, for some no ). So question is, is there any other solution to make that game run smoothly?

My pc specs:

Hp Pavilion dv5-1040en

NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT 512mb
Intel® Core™2 Duo P7350 2GHz (3MB, 1033MHz);
320GB HD
Directx 11
Windows 7

Waiting for you answers.

Regards, Soundwave3
