WS_WSAETIMEDOUT error when trying to enter multiplayer matches

Post by Super Stirfry »

HI Guys.
My two preteen sons both play Empire Earth which they got from their Grandfather.
They lost the CD, and now have new (used) PC for Christmas.
I downloaded and installed EE on each PC.
I do not play EE so I am not so well versed in all of this.
Whenever we create a multiplayer game in LAN or Direct Connect, the Host computer is happpy.
Whenever the guest computer tries to join the game, after a seconds we get a WS_WSAETIMEDOUT
error and the game stops working.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
And... any explanations or tasks should be explained to me as if I do not know anything about what you are talking about. :o)
