View Full Version : Whats this thumbs.db.bmp file error???

12-06-2004, 07:44 PM

When I activate the console commands, after mission start up, I see an error message on the list, something like:

can´t find file ..\regiments\thumbs.db.bmp

Anyone knows what this is?

Looks like a question to post at the IL2 Community Help/Tech Forum.

Still, a thumbs.db file is a databased used by the ThumbsPlus program (see www.cerious.com (http://www.cerious.com)). How the file you described (with the .bmp extension) is used in the regiments configuration--I have no clue. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

it IS there. just make your hidden file extensions and system files visible. a thumbs.db file will be created each time by file manager when miniatures view in explorer is enabled.

Thanks, but my hidden and system files are visible and still I see no thumbs.db file.

I think this file is necessary to generate the thumbnail view of the bmp´s in explorer; what I don´t know is where mine went, and why IL-2 needs to load it.

IL2 doesn't need to load the file as some people disable these thumb files from being generated.

I have no idea why Il2 is trying to load the file though...

Ignore it and nothing bad will happen. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yeah, I guess you´re probably right.
