Windows 7: I need IPX/SPX for RA2!!! Help

I need IPX/SPX for RA2!!! Help

How can I get IPX/SPX installed for RA2?

I tried this way:

Code:
 
Step 1.
Ctrate a new folder c:\temp

Step 2.
Copy the following files to the directory c:\temp *and* to the corrsponding vista directories:
Note: You might need to open up an "elevated" command prompt, "run as administrator", (to get write access to directories).

Windows\System32\drivers\nwlnkipx.sys 
Windows\System32\drivers\nwlnkflt.sys 
Windows\System32\drivers\nwlnkfwd.sys 
Windows\System32\drivers\nwlnknb.sys 
Windows\System32\drivers\nwlnkspx.sys 

Windows\System32\rtipxmib.dll 
Windows\System32\wshisn.dll 
Windows\System32\nwprovau.dll 

Windows\inf\netnwlnk.inf  (*)
Windows\inf\netnwlnk.pnf  (*)

(*) The directory "inf" is hidden

Step 3.
Go to "manage network connection" (in control panel-> network). Right click your LAN adapter connection, click "install", "protocol", "Add", Do not select the IPX that is already in the list, be sure to select "have disk". Navigate to "c:\temp" and select file "netnwlnk.inf", now select "WLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS". You will get a warning it's not verifyable, install anyway (or not..). 

If you get an error message about a missing module, you forgot to copy the above files to the windows 7 directories.

Step 4.
Reboot computer.
But I could not find these files

Code:
Windows\System32\drivers\nwlnkipx.sys 
Windows\System32\drivers\nwlnkflt.sys 
Windows\System32\drivers\nwlnkfwd.sys 
Windows\System32\drivers\nwlnknb.sys 
Windows\System32\drivers\nwlnkspx.sys 

Windows\System32\rtipxmib.dll 
Windows\System32\wshisn.dll 
Windows\System32\nwprovau.dll 

Windows\inf\netnwlnk.inf  (*)
Windows\inf\netnwlnk.pnf  (*)
I just looked up the first one and it wasn't there so I figured looking up the rest would be a waste of time.

Any ideas?

You dont need it if your playing red alert 2 just use the tcp/ip patch.
Play Red Alert 2 on LAN - Windows Vista - Yes We Can

Even though it says vista it also works on 7, only used it in x64 i doubt it makes a difference sense it changes game files.
