Thread: How can I install IL-2 with Windows 7 ? | Forums

  1. #11
    I always turn off UAC,
    On my new rig I just copied install over via a USB drive to "C:\HSFX\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946" and everything works, plus 30Gb skins folder and all HOTAS profiles.

    Video modes can be edited in Conf.ini

    Problem solved! (or at least bypassed)

    Here is one solution for this problem: IL-2 1946 does not have StarForce protection. There are different version of 1946 available (mine has IL-2, IL-2 Forgotten Battles, Pacific Fighters and 1946), another version comes with the Aces expansion pack, yet another comes with a separete Silent Hunter sim.

    Thank to this forum's Tully_ I installed 1946 only, it didn't cost much,and now I can play IL-2.

    The installation process is a simple one, there are no comlicated tricks you need to know: install from the disk's "a.exe" file (do not let automatic installation to install it) & install it outside any "Program Files" folders (for example I have it in F:\Ubisoft\IL-2). That's it. (But just in case of any trouble see this thread: http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php...of-IL-2-series and read Tully_'s instructions).

    And Tully_: thanks again, You made my day:

    It has been a LONG time, I am attempting to install on a brand spanking new W7 64 and have tried most of the tricks here and the best so far is it got to 21% installed. and well stalled. The SecuROM was a bust and would not update.
