I purchased Command and Conquer 3 and made a working backup of it using Alcohol 120% (following Philambers guide). The back up works fine on my laptop running Vista and using the registered copy of Alcohol. But when I try to run the back up on my desktop running XP and the trial version of Alcohol I get the error “Emulation detected”. In Explorer it says something like “Need RMPS 2.0”. The original works fine on the desktop.
Both computers have basically the same software installed, and the game was installed using the original DVD. The settings in Alcohol are the same on both computers. The only exception is the desktop has the trial version. I can’t find any other software on my desktop that might be blacklisted. I do have Nero on my desktop (not on my laptop) but I’ve never had a problem with it before.
Any ideas what would cause it not to work on the desktop? Could it be the old DVD player on my desktop isn’t compatible? Are there limitations on the trial version of Alcohol which prevent RMPS (emulation)?
