I'm locked out of 4.05 after reformatting my HD.
The old key that I recieved in April no longer works for me. I sent a polite plea to Ubi's help section asking for a new one, but I've no idea if they will respond.

Has anyone else been in a similar situation and gotten a positive result? I could use some good news right about now. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

Yeah, I re-installed XP a few weeks back. Emailed UBI for the new key, recieved it about an hour later. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Yep, thats what I did last night when the problem occurred. Just my luck it was a Friday night though! Looks like I won't be whupped on Zekes' this weekend.

I'm very glad to know others have been able to get a fix for the problem. Thanks Dolemite and Steve for the help! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Still? You would think after the intial fiasco they had with 4.05, they would try to stay on top of this...

Odd isn't it?

Heres the automated message reciept I recieved. Maybe I left something out or wasn't polite enough. I deleted my personal account details, but the rest is as-is:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have a problem re-installing and registering my "Pe-2 Peshka" addon for Il-2 Sturmovik. My reciept number is: ************

I have just reformatted my hard drive after getting a virus.
I have reinstalled my Il-2 game up to 4.04m and want to reinstall the Pe-2 addon that I bought.

The installation went fine, but I cannot register to unlock the game.
At the "Unlock My Game Right Now" section, I put in my registration key that I recieved via email when I purchased the product (**************.**********) the anti-piracy check will not recognise my password.

Please note that this password worked fine before when I first installed the product in April.

Is it possible to get a new registration code so I may continue to use this product? I am a great fan of the series, and it is a terrible thing to be without it - especially over the weekend ^_^

Any assistance you can provide will be very gratefully recieved.

Sincerely,
******************"

Just a thought, maybe it should be in French... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Are you sure you did it right?

Log into the UBIstore, click on My Orders, then click on Customer Service next to your Pe-2 order #, check "None of these possible questions corresponds to my request", then simply ask them to send you a new validation key.

If you did that and still havent received the key, then I dunno. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Maybe send them hate mail/threaten them or something http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You do realise that as long as you have the download you don't need a reg key right? I just re-installed yesterday and have updated up to Pe-2 expansion and never had to use my reg key or attempt to get a new one.

You can and I have. But if 4.06 turns up and I want to install it. It'll probably be looking for valid boonty .exes, which I dont have at the moment. Thats where my problem is http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif.

While you are waiting.....

Create a partition on your hard drive and name it "IL2 Stuff" or whatever. Then drag the entire FB folder into that partition. Now you wont have to reinstall the game if you want to reformat your windows partition.

Also, create an "unboontified" patch by using the .exe from your 4.04m install and get rid of the boonty one.

All you need from the Boonty patch is:
Training folder
Paint schemes folder
missions folder
Intros folder
files.sfs
fb_3do15.sfs
IL2fb.exe (from 4.04m)

Put all above in a zip file.

Now you have an unboontified homemade patch! If you ever reinstall game, just unzip into your fb directory and your good to go!

As long as you have your original reg key, all should be fine.

I don't think they will require this anyway for 4.06m because the boonty 4.05m exe was unstable and caused problems and they know it.

But anything is possible with UBI.
