Do you mean the game won't install, or the game installed but it won't launch even when your DVD is in the drive?

IF you're referring to Pacific Fighters, this is a know problem and the the fix is at this link: Ubisoft Solution Center (http://ubisoft.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/ubisoft.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=10061&p_created=1099077749&p_sid=3_uGGxsh&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PWRmbHQmcF9ncmlkc29yd D0mcF9yb3dfY250PTQmcF9zZWFyY2hfdHlwZT1zZWFyY2hfbmw mcF9wcm9kX2x2bDE9ODgmcF9wcm9kX2x2bDI9MTEyOCZwX2Nhd F9sdmwxPSZwX2NhdF9sdmwyPSZwX3BhZ2U9MQ**&p_li=)

Yes, there are five patches as I recall. I take it then that you installed as 'merged' to Ace Expansion Pack; you'll want the 'm' series of patches:
- 3.0 to 3.03m
- 4.01m
- 4.02m
- 4.03m
- 4.04m

This is the highest version you can go to unless you buy the 1946 add-on. This means that you won't be able to use the EnJoyr series of DGen patches. However, you will be able to use the components found within the EnJoyr patches as they were in their original form. Consider these campaign updates, after you backup your game's DGen folder:

1. 4043 DGen 4.0 BOE combined (http://forum.combatace.com/index.php?automodule=downloads&showfile=2032) zip file. The contents will need a little manual sorting, so please read the "Combination zip contents.txt" document. Specifically, it will tell you that if you don't have Battle Over Europe and/or Ostfront, you will have a few new campaigns in your menus that you won't actually be able to use. Oh, and you'll have to register at CombatAce.com to download.

2. While you're at CombatAce.com, download True Pacific v0.08 (http://forum.combatace.com/index.php?automodule=downloads&showfile=2597) by NimitsTexan. There is a bug with the Coral Sea missions where the carriers crash into the escorts, but overall it improves several stock Pacific careers.

3. Enhanced Eastern Front v2 (http://www3.sympatico.ca/greg.smart/v2_Enhanced_Eastern_DGen_Campaigns.zip) by GregSM.

It wasn't clear to me exactly what game was installed...PF standalone, or FB+AEP+PF merged. If you just have Pacific Fighters standalone game, the correct patches will NOT have an 'm' in the name.
If you have Forgotten Battles+Ace Expansion Pack+Pacific Fighters merged together, then use the patches Skycat listed.
