Long time player of IL2 and just rebuilt my PC and decided to buy 1946 to replace my merged IL2/PF/AEF etc. When I insert the DVD into my Samsung DVD drive there is no auto run and explorer shows 5 DAT files called KDG 00 1 to 5.

Other games have installed fine from this DVD drive so why not this game. I can't find any reference to DAT files only in the searches I have done in the IL2 forum so here's a new post.

Many thanks

Simon

Hi sjclark!

I had the same problem with 1946. Insert DVD in your drive. Open Explorer and locate a file named "a" on the DVD. Double klick on "a" and the installation will start.

Dear Falkman...Thanks for your reply but I can only see 5 files all of them KDG.dat type files and no .exe files. I can explore other DVD ROMs I have like CoH and see many files and these have installed fine since my re-build.

Very confused http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

sjclark,

This is how the IL-2 1946 should look like when right click and explore D:

This is how the Bouns DVD looks:

I'd say contact amazon and ask them why they sent you a fake disc, there is no way that is the real il2:1946 disc published by Ubisoft.

As Urufu_Shinjiro said above me you will need to bring this to the attention of Amazon who sold you the game. Support may be able to offer some assistance in confirming the disc received is not as it should be in which case you can contact them via the link in my signature but sadly beyond that the issue lies with Amazon.

Sorry I couldnt be more help

I'd like to thank everyone on the forum who took the time to reply to my issue. I receieved the DVD as a present so I'm seeing what Amazon can do for me.

As I'm missing il2 so much I went to steam yesterday and downloaded a copy. See you online and thanks again. Simon.
