    Default Vista and the Mod

    Okay, so installed 1946 and the mods on my laptop, (which has Vista on board) 4.08 un-modded comes up fine, but I get a "denied access" message when trying to run the modded versions. I tried running as admin and edited the security settings. What am I missing here ??? ??? ??? ???

    Turn off UAC and move the UbiSoft\IL-2 folders out of the Program Files folder.
    "If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”—Samuel Adams

    Blacky, notice that Vista uses two "Program Files" structures, one of which is "Program Files (x86), or something similar. 32 bit programs should be put in the X86 folder ... 64 bit programs install into "Program Files'. I don't know if your issue is because the game is in the 64 bit folder, but it might be.

    If it is in "Program Files", try moving it to the (x32) folder and see if that works. It did on my 64 bit system -- here I'm assuming you are using 64 bit Vista. If not, then .....

    Never mind .... : : :

    Vista is a pain because of the permissioning structure of the OS
    Taking ownership of folders cures most issues you come across in Vista
    See the link below for a handy reg tweak that adds a "take ownership" option to your right click function.

    Also make sure that you set the "Compatibility Mode" to Windows XP SP2 in the properties section of the IL2FB.EXE.

    (Running Vista x64, IL2, IL2 Modded just fine).


    Find the IL2FB.exe file.
    RIGHT click the file.
    Select Properties.
    Then set compatibility mode to XP w/ SP2.
    Click O.k.

    Problem should be solved.
