Hi,

I've recently bought Red Alert 3 "EA value games" collection.

I've installed successfully the game.
Unfortunately when I try to start it the game displays the following message :

"A required security module can not be activated.
This program can not be executed. (3000)."

Has someone experienced the same issue ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

CD version is protected with SecuROM:

It's supposed to work with Wine, but it seems it failed on you. If you can download the game, say, from Steam using your CD key, it may be the best way to the solution.

Hi,

Thanks for the answer.

Unfortunately the game is no more available on Steam but only on EA's Origin Platform.

I tried to make Origin work with PlayOnLinux but it failed to download the game.

Regards.
