Hello,
I had AEP/FB Gold Pacj running very good for several days now.
Today I tried to do a meged install of Pacific Fighters.
I tried to launch game with PF disk 2 and I get the above subject line error window with the following message.
"Tha application failed to initiaize properly
(0xc0000142)
I tried a unistall of everything, deleted all left over folders from FB/AEP/PF.
Reinstalled .
Tried resarting again and again.
Started in safe mode many times and ran cleanmgr.
I patched to 3.04m.
Updated nvida drivers.
Everything in device manager is ok.
What other steps can I do to try to fix this.
I searched this forum but could not find this topic mentioned.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Is that a CD-RW that you are using? Pacific Fighters has a copy protection that does not allow it to run and sometimes won't even install on a CD-RW. I got around it by uninstalling my CD-RW software, installing the merged IL2-AEP-PF, putting in the replacement rts.dll, then re-installing my CD-RW software.

Thanks for the extremly fast responce.
You are correct!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
I started this install of PF over 3 hours ago.
I should have searched forum sooner.
This a great forum.
You have a ideal that is unique, I did not think about uninstalling software .
I just replaced the rts.dll file that was on cd with the smaller 104kb file from the download at Ubisoft.
But I am not sure uninstalling the cd application software would help.
The cd drive or dvd drive is reconized by OS before you install the cd writer software.
I may be wrong on this, if I am please someone correct me.
I don't know nearly enough to understand why I can explore the cd with my cd/dvd/writer drive and install all the files.
But that rts.dll file will not let game run.
I thought that maybe the fix file should y be put in the directory before you do a install of game?
But the file would just get written over by install anyway so. I guess not. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
I just started PF and I am very happy and impressed.
The soundtrack was the first thing I think I noticed . Much higher qualilty it seems.

Each version of series just gets better and better.
My hat is off to our Russion friends.
Thank You
