    When I go to install Red Alert 2 it doesn't even get into the installation and it says Debugger Detetected, Unload And Try Again....

    I have never seen this and I've installed it countless times...
    Does anyone know how to unload the debugger?

    try doing a ctrl-alt-delete and killing the mdm.exe process if you see it listed.

    You don't have any type of other debuggers installed do you? like SoftICE or the ones that come with visual studio?

    Same with Black & White

    Recently I bought B&W. After installing and startup is says the same: unload debugger. I've found out it's the safedisc copy protection that checks for a debugger. But there is no debugger active. One suggestion is to upgrade the creative drivers but no effect. And mdm.exe is not listed in Task manager. Is there a way to block the safedisc check so I can play my legal game?

    My RA2 was doing the same thing
    My partition was NTFS when I formatted and went to FAT32 it worked
