Try taking this to Community Help Forum, and while you're there, see if they don't already have the fix to your problem posted.

1628 is about three centuries before 1946!

Your computer is outdated!

It's a DVD ROM, so you should be putting it in a DVD reader.

Are you getting an install screen or anything? Is anything at all happening except the error message?

Pay specific attention to where they talk about deleting stuff in the registry. I have a feeling this is what you'll have to do.

But are you *sure* you got all the temp files, first?

05-08-2007, 12:04 AM
YEp I even did the registry stuff and everything, not a trace of IL2 on my computer but I just tried again and I got the same thing, what should I do?

05-08-2007, 12:25 AM
If you really got all the temp files, and those registry keys, then I'm stumped http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Someone in Community Help will come up with something, though.

05-08-2007, 12:50 AM
when I click ont eh icon it leaves behind I get a
Il2fb.exe is not a valid win32 application

05-08-2007, 12:56 AM
I doubt you'll want to here this, Slo, but the same thing was happening to me and I just kept reinstalling it (at 40 minutes a pop) until it finally did it.

Prolly took four or five tries ( I can't remember exactly), but it did finally install.

05-08-2007, 12:57 AM
I had the same problem...I made a new folder, installed to that location...then I opened it up and ran the exe

My game didn't want to install either for the first time with the auto installer and i did something else.
I put the dvd in the drive and browsed the files on it. There are more then one installing pacage there. Try them all. One of them may work.
One of them installed the game perfect for me.

I'm sorry but I don't remember wich one. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif


05-08-2007, 06:50 PM
yeah, I remember now I had to use a.exe myself to get it to install. Then I had to delete the desktop icon it created and make a new one to get it to run. I made an obnoxious drunken post about it screaming and *****ing, luckily it was lost in the forum prune.

05-08-2007, 10:16 PM
YEa I think I'm on my 17 th try and I getting a bit annoyed at the 20 minutes it takes to find out its screwed up again
. ANd how do I make a new desktop icon?

05-08-2007, 10:31 PM
Of bloody course it didn't work again.

05-08-2007, 10:57 PM
I found ail2fb.exe on the dvd file and copied it into the 1946 file and it works ! Now I'm just downloading the patch and up I go Thanx alot guys you helped and now I get to fly again! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif and yes I'm excited

05-08-2007, 10:58 PM
Well, to make a new desktop icon you first delete the existing one. Then navigate thru my computer or windows explorer to the c drive, then into program files, then into the folder the game is installed into (default is ubi soft\il2 sturmovik forgotten battles). In there should be an "il2fb.exe". Right-click on it, and click 'send to-desktop(create shortcut'.
