Reinstall Bug hit me today. I unistalled FB thru the control panel. Then deleted all the folders, which I believe was a mistake after reading the above thread. Is there anything I can do to get this game reinstalled?

Whats preventing you from installing it now?

When I try to install from the FB CD now, I get an error stating that "IL-2 FB NOT FOUND". After running setup.exe, the install wizard starts up, then ends after a few seconds and kicks back the error. Any idea how to get around this.

Install FB1.0
- Didnt patch it at all

then...

START/RUN/REGEDIT.exe

Browsed out

-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
- SOFTWARE
+ IL2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles

and I found that there was no KEY for language.

With "IL2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles" highlighted, I right mouse click
- hit NEW,
- select STRING VALUE

and I added a value of "language".

In the main gui area of regedit you will now see a new Name of "language" without a value set.

You then highlight "language"
- right click
- MODIFY
and put in "en_us"

Now close regedit.exe by just closing it's window. No need to click on anything to save what you did.

I then went to my AEP disk, clicked on setup.exe and now I dont get the FB not found and it installs properly.

I have no idea why my registry entry originally did not include a key for language....

but this is how I fixed my issue.

NOTICE!!!: When I utilize the parenthesis marks above, they are only to denote a string value. You do not include the parenthesis when putting the value into the keys.

NOTICE: You mess with you regedit.exe at your own risk!

Hi RAVEMAZ,
This sounds like a similar problem that my nephew had. He is running Norton System Works as antivirus and as it was running in the back ground it would not finish scanning and allow ace expansion to install, try shutting down all antivirus and firewall before installing. He had no problem after doing this. Just remember to reactivate antivirus and firewall after.

Thanks for the suggestions, but it still won't go, "IL-2 FB NOT FOUND". This is getting frustrating. Could I have hosed my self by deleting the game folders after I uninstalled?

If you think the uninstall is the problem, see FB uninstall/reinstall resolution

Your posts lack a clarity of information. I don't know if you can't install AEP or FB nor how to respond.

Your post made me realize I'm a huge n00b. I was trying to install AEP when I uninstalled IL-FB initially. I reinstalled both and am up and running again. Thank you.
