View Full Version : Pacific fighters and windows 7 32 bit problem

08-24-2016, 03:02 AM
I have been running IL2 COD and wanted to reinstall IL2 PF and update with patches 303-404
Problem is when I insert the PF cd it wont install

Are there any programs I need to install before inserting the cd such as direct x ?

COD runs fine

In the near future I will be getting BOS and BOM and merge the 2

Thanks in advance !

Pacific Fighters won't install on Windows 7. Even if you use the a.exe trick that works for IL-2 1946 to get it to install the first disk it won't allow you to install the second disk.
If you have one or know someone who has an old winXP machine you can install PF onto it and copy the files to your win7machine. PF will still need disk #2 in the Win7 machines CD/DVD to play.

Option two is to buy IL-2 1946 which includes all of the content of Pacific Fighters.

Good Old Games download: https://www.gog.com/game/il_2_sturmovik_1946
(GoG version does not have any DRM requiring disks or other software to play.)

Amazon (DVD version): https://www.amazon.com/2-Sturmovik-1946-PC/dp/B000N4JENW
(The DVD version should not require you to have it in the DVD tray to play.)

Steam download: http://store.steampowered.com/app/15320/
(Steam is my least favorite option but I know several people have Steam accounts so I do add it to the list for that reason)
