I'd appreciate some help on how to install this program.

I've downloaded IL2Mat Manager 2.20 and unzipped it. I can't open the readme. If I click on the IL2Mat manager 2.20 file, nothing happens.

It's an interesting program but it's installation isn't exactly intuitive.

you need to be able to fully view the read-me that comes with IL2 Mat-manager

it has COMPLETE instruction for you . . . . the read-me is a Windows "WORD" file

go to windows-downloads.com & download & install the FREE word file viewer they distribute

heres a link i got from them just now to the specific page :

Windows Word-Viewer download (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=95e24c87-8732-48d5-8689-ab826e7b8fdf&DisplayLang=en)

if that doesnt work , heres a direct link to their download page , where you can search for the program

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.aspx?displaylang=en

please follow Leighs instruction carefully in his read-me , they work first-time , every-time when followed carefully

Hello there

Did you click on the file or the installer <span class="ev_code_GREEN">inside </span>the file? At first glance you're right, it isn't one of the most intuitive of operations but when you've cracked it once, you'll have no problems.

Aces Artwork homepage should help you more...

Oh, by the way, the actual installation takes upwards of twenty minutes. It may look like the programme's hanging, but behind the scenes there's lots going off, as you'll appreciate when you see the new insignia.

Thanks for the responses. I was trying to keep this computer for gaming only but broke down and installed XP office so that I can read the instructions.

I'll try another install after work today. But can you clarify something for me?

The instructions say to do certain things if I have version 3.0 of the game install and to do other things if I have version 3.3 or more. I have version 3.0 of the game but have patched up to 4.01 of the merged install. So do I follow the instructions for the 3.0 version or for the 3.3 or above version?
