I just picked up Forgotten battles ACE expansion pack today. I tried to install ACE but the install keeps coming up with "IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles NOT FOUND". I have FB installed in the default path (C:\program files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles), I am running version 1.22 of FB, I have been flying in the VEF2 and I purchased FB from EB games sometime ago. Does anyone know what is wrong or what is up? Thanks for any help.

Uninstall FB (back up anything you want to save first)

reboot

Delete the FB main directory

Reboot

Re-install FB

Himdog out<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> Hello, I also have ACE EXPANSION PACK also and I also have the same problem. I called the Ubisoft tech support line and this is what they told me: first uninstall IL-2 FB, then reinstall it, but let it install by itself via AUTORUN, then a dialog box appears which asks you to select a language: click ENGLISH -( this is important because this is how AEP finds IL-2 FB! ) then install ACE EXPANSION PACK and it should install OK with no problem. Good Luck--Swalljrunn.
