View Full Version : Trouble installing FB

06-01-2005, 06:55 AM
I'm trying to install Forgotten Battles but keep getting the following error message after the installation reaches 100%.

'Error 1305. Error reading from file c:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\Il-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\fb_3do01.SFS. Verify the files exists and that you can access it.'

Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?

I've had this problem before. You must retry installing it over and over until it works. I know it sounds like a pain, but after 1 or 2 more tries, it'll work like a charm. Atleast, it did for me.

Oh thats a bit odd. Well at least I know the disc can't be damaged. I have already tried 'retry'-ing a couple of times but no luck. I'll give it another few chances though and see what happens.

You may have to find the files on the CD and try copying them directly into your Hard Drive in the specified folder.

I tried that and there was an error copying the file. I'm starting to think the disc maybe damaged, I did buy it second hand. I'll contact Ubisoft about getting a replacement.

I had this same problem . I tired 5 or 6 time to reinstall with no luck then I noticed I had the PF disc in the other drive - I took that out, tried agin and hey presto it worked! That may have been a complete coincidence, but I share it with you just in case there was someting in it
