    Pacific Fighters Install

    Hi, Is it possible to install Pacific Fighters on Win10?
    Thanks

    It should be fine. I have Il2:1946, which has Pacific Fighters built in, and it works fine on my Win10.

    I find this interesting as my experience with 1946 was different. It installed ........... eventually ........ took about an hour... and ran like a slug. I even went and purchased the Steam version which installed fine and dandy but still ran like a slug. Steam were very prompt with the refund.
    Along with other issues I dumped W10 and returned to W7 64. Now I am happy.

    My specs below.
    Intel Skylake i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
    Asus MAXIMUS IX HERO ATX LGA1151 Z270 Motherboard
    Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
    Intel BXTS13X 74.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
    Corsair 750W PSU16Gb
    MSI RX580 Radeon Armor 8Gb
    Windows 10 Home Premium 64
    Windows 7 64

    IL-2 needs to be put in a folder outside of the program files or on a other HD to work properly. I use Win7 64 bit and have no problems. Have several expansions of IL-2'46 and all run great including VP modpack and BAT. Go to https://www.sas1946.com/main/ for more help and info. A great site for all things IL-2 '46. Regards,Scott

    Pacific Fighters

    My problem is simple: I insert the CD and nothing happens. I went in to try both "Autorun " and "Setup" to no avail. I'm running Win7

    This rings a bell. You have to use file explorer and go into the directories and I think the install .exe is in a folder called 'A' or similar... Then it will install.

    EDIT: - Sorry when you mentioned Pacific Fighters I assumed you meant IL2 1946. The above would refer to IL2 1946 - in order to get that running it will not autorun but you need to track down the file a.exe and run that.

    I dug out my PF disc (which hasn't been used in easily 14 years!!!) It will not autorun either but there are two distinct install files and for me they both work at starting an install. Perhaps your disc is damaged.

    Other than that I would recommend you try Steam and purchase of Il2 1946 which contains every addon under the sun is about $10. A steal imho - providing it works for you - didn't for me as described earlier. But Steam are good with refunds.
