View Full Version : Problem getting IL2 FB installed

I don't know if my question has been asked before. If it has, just a link is enough for an answer to me. ;-)

I have the following problem :
when I insert the IL2 FB cd-rom, the usual window appears if I want to install. When I click on it soon another appears which says 'Initialising install' of 'Preparing to install' (don't know by heart). And then... nothing. It blocks simply.

I have Windows XP on our computer. Installing Pacific Fighters never was a problem, so I don't understand what's wrong.

A couple of months ago we had a major computer problem and in the shop instead of making a back up, they simply installed a new XP version over the existing one. Before that problem, I succeeded in installing IL2FB, PF and the Ace expansion pack with no problem whatsoever.

Thanks for reading this and, maybe, helping me out. :-)

Hi MarioMop,

You might also try posting in the IL2 Community Help forum (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/frm/f/49310655).

The only thing I can think of is to maybe try booting into safe mode and try installing then. Maybe something is hanging the installation up?
