Click start/run then type in regedit, then do this simple task

rename this reg key...hkey_local_machine\software\ubi soft\game service games\il2fb_DFIGHT rename it into hkey_local_machine\software\ubi soft\game service games\il2fb_DOGFIGHT and see if it works

When you go online on Ubi.com it keeps saying that you do not have IL2 FB dogfight installed. This solves the problem and has worked for me.

Excellent suggestion. It worked perfectly for me. Basically go into Regedit, and look for the specific registry listing. Change it from DFIGHT to DOGFIGHT as suggested. It will fix the problem.

Is this also necessary for Hyper Lobby?

Hi,
What you wrote i did but it doesn`t work.

I changed the name into dogfight. I close the
registry and want to start an online game.
When i choose a room the game starts. Then you come in
the mainscreen of il2. That was it.

Then i look later again in the registry key.
And the old ....dfight is there again. The ...dogfight key
is also there.

So i can`t go online..

I was able to play on a patched HL server without doing this regedit.

Try playing without closing the regedit window. After you play once it should keep the settings.

Usually when you make a registry change. You have to reboot to get it to work.

It worked again for me. I didn't reboot or anything. I also still have DGFIGHT as well as DOGFIGHT. Try following the steps again and taking BuzzU's suggestion of rebooting. For me it took only a few minutes to change- I have the new patch and managed to play without any difficulty. Hopefully Ubi and 1C Maddox will look into this.
