i have bought myself a new computer with windows 7. i have tried to install my most favourite game, il2 1946. i cannot get it to install... what is wrong with it?


For complete instructions on how to get it working see http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php...-with-win7-FIX , however the quick version is:
  • Insert disk
  • Do NOT use the autoplay installer. Navigate the disk, find and run a file called "a.exe". The game installation will start.
  • When the installer starts, choose "custom install" and make sure the installation folder is NOT inside C:\Program Files\ or C:\Program Files (x86). Windows is over protective of these folders and wont let IL2 (or you) change any game settings. Simplest is to create a folder called C:\Games and install it there.
  • Start the game. If you get a Securom error, go to https://support.securom.com/analysis.php and follow the instructions.
Or you can just buy GOG download version that has no copy protection and is compatible all the way to Windows 8.

Can't Copy Files onto USB Drive


You should have no isssue moving or copying files from a flash drive to your hard drive, unless there is some very unusual type of security placed on them. It sounds like you should make sure you have the proper windows open to drag and drop in Explorer or My Computer windows. I personally find it easier to drag and drop using My Computer. Open My Computer, and navigate to the folder where you want to place the pictures. (There is a quick link to My Documents on the left sidebar.) Once there, leave that window open. Then open a new My Computer window, and navigate to the flash drive, where the files should be listed or displayed. Select the file(s) you want to move, and drag them over to the first window, which is still open to your desired destination. This should solve it - thanks for rating FixYa!
