Do you get that error when you're installing or did it install successfully and then you get the error when you try to start the game?

If the error is happening when you try to start the game, are you sure you have the right CD in the drive? If I remember right, it's CD #2 that has to be in the drive.

i have the same problem. it occurs after the game has been installed, when you try to run it the first time. it occurs w/ CD #2, and cd #2 is the cd which is required to play. any help here would be appreciated, i can't run the game either (very frustrating)

If you guys have got Pacific Fighters or the IL-2 Gold-Pack, then you can replace the original rts.dll in your game folder with the one from UBI, which is freely available on their web-site, exactly for that problem of yours (yes mods, thats true!). Unfortunately i dont have the download-link at hand, but the rts.dll at ************* is the exact same one as the one from UBI. So if you know the site (and you should do) then you will have no problem finding it.
Hope that helped.

Argh! I said G AM e cop y world . c o m

Oh, and i forgot: If you didnt get it, with that new dll you dont need your cd in the drive anymore. IIRC a lot of customers had problems like you and couldnt play the game and so the new dll was (officially) issued.

Found it! No need to go to that bad site that apparently is so bad that it has to be censored. Click this (ftp://ftp.ubi.com/de/support/Spiele/PacificFighters/rts.zip) link, download the file and replace the rts.dll in your game folder.
Hope it works.
