View Full Version : HOW to UN-INSTALL all the previous ver. of IL2 for a clean install of 1946?

12-26-2006, 07:12 AM
Over the years..i've ( like many ) have continually installed the patches , upgrades..and add-ons. From FB..to Aep..to Pf..to Pe2. NOw ...my question..i want to have a clean install for IL2 1946. But first, i want to COMPLETELY un-install my current versions of IL2. In my add/remove programs window, I have many options: Uninstall FB..uninstall FB+Aep...uninstall FB+AEP+Pf...
uninstall Pe2-en.

Can i safely delete any of these in no apparent order? so ..if i remove FB first...will the missing files interupt the un-install process of removing the PF files?

and ..while I'm at it..what about deleting registry keys? i have seen several HKCU_software_forgottenBattles keys ... in there before. Must all these go too ? even the UbiSoft ones ?

I think I deleted everything in no specific order and I cleaned the registry with WinASO.No problem so far.You got CCleaner for free if you donĀ“t want to do the manually work.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Before you do If you have skins save the folder, if you want to save your stick settings etc and pilot settings as well as graphics, back them all up as well
