Thanks for the reply.
Reading through the link I am more confused than before.
It does not talk about '46, just all the others as FB AEP and BE?

Could someone explain how to go from stand alone PF to 1946?

IL-2 '46 isn't available as a patch, as far as I know (anybody correct me if I'm wrong....).

If you've got a '46 disk, that will install the sim in a new folder (C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 by default). I'm not sure how much of PF you could safely copy across, but since you can keep the old PF install as well, there should't be much need, apart from any skins or missions you've added yourself. (if you have any mods, this forum is not the place to discuss them...).

If you are running Vista or the Windows 7 beta, there can be problems, see other topics in this forum for help, though it shouldn't be too hard.

Edit ----

After you have installed '46, you will want to patch it to 4.08 (available from Ubi). There is a 4.09 beta patch about, but the final 4.09 patch is due 'soon' so I'd wait for that...

But seriously, you can save yourself a lot of grief if you just pick up the iL2 -1946 DVD. You will be able to find it for less than $20 on the Internet. I am not even sure you can patch from Pacific Fighters up to 4.07m and if you could, you would need to buy additional game versions. The DVD will get you to 4.07m and then you need one patch to bring you up to 4.08m

I don't think you can easily do what you are asking. Is it because you are looking to save your identity and settings, i.e Controls and so on. Also Skins, missions etc? You can transfer these things into a new iteration of the game quite easily - but it would be best to use a copy (i.e. the DVD) of IL2 Sturmovik '46 to create that new version.

Note that your current install of Pacific Fighters is in a folder called Ubi Soft, whereas the DVD will default to a folder called Ubisoft. Because of the different naming, both versions will remain separate in Program Files and settings must be transferred manually by drag n' drop or Copy/ Paste. That's not as difficult as it sounds...
