I'm surprised that you are the first to ask this, I had the same problem.

You need to copy the files in the patch into the game directory. I copied all except "il2setup.exe", it's the hardware configuration setup and it does not work as well as the original file, I had to reinstall the game because all my settings got messed up and I could not set them back.

Anyway, I must say that a 40meg patch that does not have an installer is pretty lame. Sure, most of us here can figure it out, but what about the majority of computer users out there who do not know as much as us?

Doesn't have an installer? I winged it by clicking the program "il2patch 11b" then clicking the zip file "il2patch11b" which unzipped right into il2fb directory. Readme's for people who can't get the game to work or have free time. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

When I double-clicked on the downloaded file, it unzipped directly into FB directory, updating the game but retaining all my old settings. Where did you download from?
