  2. Gents, I ran across this and got uber excited. I hope a release channel might happen one day! http://redbaron3dofficialsite.com/forum/index.php?topic=18.0 This sure is news to me, and a proof positive that RB3d is not dead!

    That is very strange. It sounds like it's being blocked, but you say you turned off UAC and ran the setup.exe as an Admin. Also, be sure you are launching setup.exe from within the setup folder on the CD drive, and not the setup.exe just on the root of your CD drive.

    Ok, with UAC (User Account Control) off in Win 7 64-bit, I put the SDOE CD in the drive. I Opened it up in Explorer and went to the setup folder. Then I Right Clicked the Setup.exe file and ran it as Administrator. It installed just fine.

    Cliffs of Dover, but it's a bloody mess...

    Ok, I'll try when I get home to see if it still works with SDOE. It did 2 years ago when I disk installed the game last on my Win 7 64-bit box.

    For FS;SDOE, don't use the autorun launcher. Go to the CD-ROM drive, and into the setup folder. There you should find a setup.exe. Launch that. For Pacific Fighters, nearly the same. There should be a setup.exe inwhich you can bypass the autorun stuff. For changing the install path, you've got to do a Custom install, and it will give you an option to change the path that way.

    Hello! Indeed you can get IL-2: 1946 to run. However it involves either updating the copy protection software (SecuROM) or owning one of the downloadable versions without that. Be sure NOT to install it to Program Files (x86) FS:SDOE can run under Windows 7 as well. Run the setup on the disk as an Administrator, and sometimes set it to Win98/WinME compatibility. The same for Pacific Fighters.

    Looking for tank sim

    Try World of Tanks. It's on-line, fun and free. Not the 100% realism as Steel Beasts, but you can jump right in.
