View Full Version : 4.04m & Pe-2 division

For those of us who are registry ignorant... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif once Pe-2 is out in the West (still "the bourgeois" according to Babel http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif) can we simply clone C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles under a different name to keep 4.04m BEFORE installing Pe-2?

Presumably we just add a shortcut to the old version?

Are we likely to get UBI's copy protection (I never pirate, just don't want my machine messed around with!)

Yes you can. I do it all the time with new releases.

IL2 does not need any registry entries to run.

Until my last Windows re-install I'd had 5 or 6 different versions from the original IL2 up through various incarnations to PF standalone and merged with no problem at all using just the technique you describe.
