Hi all. just bought Pe2 add on from "Boonty store" and the hell startet immediately. I can't install the game as the installes says that I do not have a full version. I play 4.04m which is newest patch I suppose. DO YOU KNOW HOW SHALL I HANDLE WITH AN INSTALLATION?

Hi! & thanks mate for such a prompt answer. I've already went through the installation steps. But the point is that I do not have any chance to dig deeper in installation process as Boonty installer says that I am running not fulll version of the game. The best way in my case would be to borrow a CD with the patch and use my reg. no. given at the purchase process

There is also a forum on SimHQ about removing all traces of BoontyBox from your system which is very useful indeed: "How to remove BOONTYBOX after installing Pe2".

Tomas you just need to edit your FB/PF registry entries. If you follow the advice posted several times in that thread and a few others you will find it is easy(30 cut and paste job).

Missing registry keys.

Do this:

1. Copy what follows in between the lines.

------------------------------------------------------

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubi Soft]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubi Soft\Game Service Games]
@=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubi Soft\Game Service Games\IL2FB_COOP]
"arg"="GS COOP"
"directory"="D:\\IL-2 Forgotten Battles\\GSData"
"exec"="D:\\IL-2 Forgotten Battles\\il2FB.exe"
@=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubi Soft\Game Service Games\IL2FB_COOPERATIVE]
"exec"="D:\\IL-2 Forgotten Battles\\il2fb.exe"
"directory"="D:\\IL-2 Forgotten Battles\\GSData"
"arg"="GS COOPERATIVE"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubi Soft\Game Service Games\IL2FB_DFIGHT]
"arg"="GS DFIGHT"
"directory"="D:\\IL-2 Forgotten Battles\\GSData"
"exec"="D:\\IL-2 Forgotten Battles\\il2FB.exe"
@=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubi Soft\Game Service Games\IL2FB_DOGFIGHT]
"exec"="D:\\IL-2 Forgotten Battles\\il2fb.exe"
"directory"="D:\\IL-2 Forgotten Battles\\GSData"
"arg"="GS DOGFIGHT"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles]
"language"="en"
"directory"="D:\\IL-2 Forgotten Battles\\"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\1.0]

"Directory"="D:\\IL-2 Forgotten Battles\\"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubi Soft\PF+FB+AEP\1.0]
@=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubi Soft\Pe-2 Peshka]
"Directory"="D:\\IL-2 Forgotten Battles"
@=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ubi Soft\Pe-2 Peshka\1.0]
@=""

------------------------------------------------------

2. Open the block note and paste it there.

3. Wherever it is written "Directory", change the path to the actual one where the installation is located (usually something like "C:\Programs\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles", or something), minding to use DOUBLE BACK-SLASHES as it appears above (in normal use it's always single back-slashes).

4. Save it as ("Save as") a .reg file, with any name ("FB registry"?), anywhere (desktop is OK).

5. Execute the file (double click on it).

&. That's it, your registry is in order now. You can delete the .reg file or keep it for future use. The keys where probably missing for you formatted without reinstalling FB, since it works nevertheless. Now everything is back to normal and you can try to install Pe-2.
