I know how to extract  files in winzip, winrar and 7Zip.

Just to make sure I understand, Is the VPModpack a comprehensive inatallation that includes 4.12.2m    or    does VPModpack get extracted into a clean installation of 4.12.2m?

If it is the first description it is pretty straight forward, but ....

if it is the second description then these are the steps I took when following the installation instructions (I had them open on my tablet during the process) and is causing my confusion.

I right clicked:   vp_modpack.7z.001
I clicked on 7Zip
I clicked on Extract files and a pop up window (not mentioned in the instructions) appears which wants the path to the game folder.  Okay I understand that.
I browsed to C:\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 4.12.2m+VP_MODPACK where I have the clean install of 4.12.2m and clicked on it and the path appears in the Extract To text box.  Buttttttttttt.......... Under this text box is another text box with the following text inside; vp_modpack\ with a box next to it it that has a check in it.
If I then click OK: vp_modpack.7z.001 gets extracted into a folder labeled vp_modpack inside of C:\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 4.12.2m+VP_MODPACK

1. Do I uncheck the box and delete the text vp_modpack before I click okay so the files extract directly into the game folder and not in a folder vp_modpack?  Then do the same for .002-.016 and the mega patch?

2. Do I leave the box checked and leave the text of vp_modpack in the text box and let the files extract to the vp_modpack folder created inside of the game folder?  Then do the same for .002-.016 and the mega patch?

I have a clean installation of 4.12.2m in C:\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 4.12.2m+VP_MODPACK and have stopped there awaiting your response.

Than you.

You need to select 7zip>Extract files for vp_modpack.7z.001 and then point it to your game folder, then its done. After that delete the #SAS\00_Ju-188A-2_v1.1 folder and extract the patch to your game folder. Next step is to add the required conf.ini entries. After that start il-2 selector.exe and play.

So as part of the the extraction process with 7Zip a folder named vp_modpack gets created, installed by 7Zip and will reside inside of the game folder, IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 4.12.2m+VP_MODPACK.  All of the compressed files from your modpack will be extracted into the vp_modpack folder.  The patch gets directed to:

IL-2 Sturmovik 1946m+VPMODPACK

OR

vp_modpack

Thank you

No vp_modpack folder should be created. When extarcting a zip you either create a folder or not. In this case you shoud not.

These are the files and folders which are added into your game folder when you extarct the zip:

This is exactly what is created and where 7-Zip places the extracted files following your instructions to the letter.

Dunno mate, you probably missed a checkbox or something. Tbh I just made the pack, but never installed it. :D
The others seem to get it right, at least nobody came to me with this "problem" so far. I hope you know that you can also drag and drop file in Windows...do you need a tutorial?

Installed, up and running.  Even have it running in 3840 x 2160 resolution (natve to my UHD 4K Monitor)

Does the jetwar get extracted the same way?



Oh, am Isupposed to use the IL_2Selector to launch the game?

The key was to uncheck the box that 7-Zip default creates.  Once I did that everything extracted correctly

Thank you very much for taking the time to help me and having patience.
