After installing the Beta 4.071M patch the game no longer runs. The 46 DVD is not recognized WTF? I can't even reinstall the game after doing an unistall via windows add remove programs. DVD drive is working OK as I reinstalled my IL2 Complete Edition DVD and the Pe2 addon with no problems. Anyone else have this problem?

Everything went smooth for me and the same for hundreds of others on Hyperlobby. Where did you download the patch from? Perhaps you got a corrupted one.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

if you bought the 46 DVD, you don't need to install the PE-2. the PE-2 is included in the DVD<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Use the DVD to uninstall the game.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Just for the record.. I had the same experience.. I installed the patch and when I tried to run it it would do the securom search then not run... so I went into the CD manually to the uninstall program and removed the game..then reinstalled.. to reinstall I had to manually use the english install folder (1033).. not sure why it won't auto run.. strange http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Or you might just read the rear of the box were it says:

"NOTICE:This game contains technology intended to prevent copying that may conflict with some DVD-RW and virtual drives."

I were just about to ask where the heck you found that, but it was in the smallest of prints I've seen http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

No problem here though.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The reason I posted this problem is I?m building a new PC but intended to reuse all my current IDE drives.

A Sony DVD ROM that uses CyberLink PowerDVD 5 software and a MSI CD-RW drive which uses Ahead Nero Burning Rom 5 software.

I?m unable to ?Open? the DVD to view the contents or launch the game as clicking the Drive icon I get a Windows error message saying there is no CD/DVD in drive. Same thing happens when I click the IL2 46 desktop Icon I get the securom ?No disk in drive? error message even though the 46 DVD is in the DVD ROM drive.

Strange as the game ran OK for a week and only stopped running after installing the beta patch.
