Hi i just brought a new computer along with the Il 2 sturmovik 1946,

My old computer had XP and the sturmovik forgotten battles worked fine,

but in my new computer trying to install the game just does not work, just wont install it

Any tips on drivers or stuff like that !!!??

On the CD try a.exe instead of the setup.exe program. I believe that works.

Welcome to the forum SundayKisi.

Please try inserting the disc in the correct drive, then click computer. Then select the drive where the disc is..(on mine it names what is in the drive) On your left side bar, click on the drive and then you should see some game icons or a menu list try to select the one that says something like "set up" "exe", open that up to get the set up wizard, install to program files and you should be good to go. I wish I could be more helpful but I am not sure how your display is set up.
However I do have some good info for vista for you.
