Computer update time
« on: January 11, 2019, 12:01:08 PM »

My old self-built pc is probably past upgrading so I am getting a new one. Building my own was fun...once... Now I am going to get an off the shelf model with geewhiz processor and graphics card.

My question is this. I have always installed IL-2 from my DVD set. Then I make copies of the install and install packs like BAT and VPmodpack over the copies. The new machine I am about to order has no DVD drive. Can I just copy an IL-2 install directory from my usb backup drive onto the new machine or do I need to install once from installation media? If necessary I can just buy a copy from GoG or Steam to get started. I don't mind making another contribution.

I've upgraded my desktop and laptop over the years.  I simply copied IL-2 from my back up drive and made any adjustments needed.  Works like charm with no need for a "disc" install first.  Cheers

Confirmed, no need to install anything.
I have a clean 4.07 1946 DVD installed folder 7zipped lying on my NAS all the time, that's my "base install".
