Title: [solved] IL-2 won't work after Windows 10 reinstall
Post by: RogueFossil on May 08, 2022, 03:24:16 PM
Hi fellow pilots!
I'm being a fan of IL-2 and the BAT mod for several years, I really love this game and the modpack as well and I greatly appreciate the community's work which keeps this game truly alive!

Unfortunatelly, my IL-2 is in the big trouble now, let's see what happened:
I had a perfecelty working IL-2 with BAT installation and fully working conf.ini file on Windows 10 x64.
I had to reinstall my system (still Win10 x64), no hardawre changes. Now the game won't start at all: I just see the splash scren for a second and then it collapses.
I reinstalled the game and checked if unmodded stock game (4.12.2) will work or not. And it does not work either. What did I try to resolve this issue:
• Tweaking conf.ini. Despite the fact that previous conf.ini was perfectly fine, I tried to switch values in [window] block, I also changed the render mode;
• Reinstalling graphic card drivers (GTX 550 Ti) and GeForce Experience;
• Running as administrator, switching off UAC, adding il2fb to the DEP exception list;
• Using various compatibility options;
• Messing with DPI scaling mode;
• Installing .NET Framework and C++ Redistributable from oldest to newest packages, I also installed Java.
The game is in the "D:\Games\IL2" directory, so it won't mess with wrong path issues.

Nothing worked for me. It feels really desperate and I have no idea what to do next. For now I try to revive the stock game. I'm sure that the problem is caused by the OS, but I can't really find out at which level.
I will appreciate any help!

Little update: it seems to be that it's somewhere at the Win10 policy level, we have BEX event here.

Probably missing some registry values. Maybe you could reinstall the game into a different location? Just the standard unmodded game, to run through the proper installation process. Leave your current install as-is.

Then once installed the second instance, try running your current install. If it works, and if you're brave enough (or desperate for extra disk space), manually delete the new install. Do not uninstal, just delete the whole folder. Or just leave it be there, if you're OK with that.

Hopefully this helps.

Thanks for the response Radoye. I tried it, but unfortunatelly, it did not help. Moreover, I tried to install old disc version (4.07) and downloaded the shared game folder with fully working 4.14 pack as well, none of these worked for me, same issue, same error.

You have enabled DEP.
Disable it again.

I switched it off via bcdedit and restarted my computer, no effect.

It's greyed out, not switched off.
Your Windows 10 doesn't look legit.

OK, here it is. I switched it off with bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff, it greyed out afterwards. Now I switched it to OptIn. :)

First steps to try would be to reinstall the graphics driver and to make sure that DEP (Data Execution Prevention) is turned on for essentials Windows Programs and Services only.
I did that and it did not help

As mentioned before, your Windows 10 doesn't look legit.
Reinstall a genuine Windows 10 copy and it'll work.
50 bucks on the table if you insist.

Why do you think it's not legit? I installed it from the genuine USB image and activated with the key, it works fine at all aspects except IL-2. All Windows updates are working fine as well as each native service.
Moreover, I can't understand, how would it affect the game launch? Didn't you mean that non-legit Windows 10 may have some mandatory services corrupt?

If someone else wants to take over, I'm bailing out at this point. 'Nuff being said.

A lot can go wrong!

Hello Fossil,

Perhaps you are playing on an old notebook (insufficient memory - graphic on CPU...).

What graphics are you flying with?

Have you set 16bit instead of 32bit in the graphics card driver or in the monitor software? It has to be 32bit!

If Nvidia driver:

Have you completely uninstalled the driver and then reinstalled the correct driver. If not, try it once and then install without "Experience"...!

If none of this helps, uninstall your virus scanner (switching it off is not enough)!

You then look for updates for Win10 again.

I wish you luck!

Wbr, Gerhard

Hi bomberkiller, thanks for help!
Unfortunatelly, the problem still the same. I completely uninstalled Nvidia driver and performed clean install without GeForce Experience. No result. After that, I installed recent updates including optional updates via Windows update. Still no result. Color depth is 32bit.

I don't use virus scanners or anti-virus/anti-malware tools. I also switched off Windows Defender through the policy settings, disabled both UAC and DEP.
So, my specs are:
• Windows 10 Pro x64
• Intel Core i5 9400, 4000 MHz
• MSI B360M Pro-VDH
• 16 Gb RAM
• Nvidia GTX 550 Ti 1 Gb
• BenQ G2020HDA Monitor (1600x900) I guess it matters
At the previous Windows installation, IL-2 worked perfectly fine and beatiful.

You did install the MSI drivers (CD/ DVD), right?

Insert IL-2 Disc and run Deinstall, this cleans up Registry, then you can reinstall Game and proceed again
with that Installation.
Keep a Backup of the old working BAT. when installed again you're good to go again.

Sorry for jumping in once more, but...

switched off Windows Defender (...), disabled (...) UAC

Don't.
I'm out again ;)

I downloaded them from MSI web-site and I guess it should be fine. At least there are no quesstion marks/unknown devices in device manager.

conf.ini
Here we go! There will be two conf.inis - the first one is from the stock game which I try to revive (4.12.2).
The second one is the last working conf.ini from my previous installation with BAT.

I had a similar problem once. For me helped to try different OpenGL.dll files. I had different ones on my pc and with one of these in the main folder 1946 worked again. Just my experience... Probably a try?

Well, IT'S ALIVE!!!

Mike's advice helped. I switched on Windows Defender and UAC, gave permission to il2fb.exe and it's good to go. It seems that I switched it off with locked(?) state therefore blocking any possibility to change this status.
The skies are open now! Thanks everyone for help and special thanks to Mike for an bull's eye shot!  :)
I'm back to BAT now 8)

Hello Fossil,

wonderful, you're back on board.  :)

It would be very nice if you would mark your post as "solved".

Best regards
