Just asking, I used to fly a lot of sims a while back. Now, I want to come back and enjoy this nice sim again. Does it run on Vista? I have the old IL-2 and Forgotten Battles and they do not run.

Would that work with the old game? Before I buy the 1946 one, just to check if I can get it to work first. I tried it with the FB one and didnt work out, simply turned my screen to 640 res and stayed there, on the desktop. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I'm running it on Vista just fine. I downloaded 1946 via Steam (a client which you can download for free.) I believe it was only $10 or something. Well worth it.

I'm not really sure if the old version of the game work with Vista; maybe you should ask in Community help section, guys there can pretty musch answer you anything related with Il-2 problems.

Though, I recommend you buying il-2 46' http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

1946 works 100% on Vista. There are a few glitches which are easily overcome.

The program is about the same except for minor bug fixes, FM, DM tweaks and added maps and aircraft. If '46 can run on Vista then FB/AEP/PF would be able to also.

FB+AEP+PF working fine. Il2 1946 409b working fine. I'll test the Il2 Sturmovik if I can find the disk.

As for general Vista compatibility - every game and program I ever wanted to run works fine. Only StarForce crap refuses to run due to driver incompatibility - which is fine since Starforce is, yes, uwanted crap as far as my computer is concerned. Good luck!
