So I found a work around for Steam version. If you install the Steam version, run the megapatcher over it. It actually brings it back down to 4.12.2. Win. On to the next test!

Bought on Steam yesterday. Can confirm the Unpatcher does not work on Steam version of 1946. Even if I install, copy the main folder to a separate hard drive unassociated with Steam, it will not take it back to 4.12.2, stays at 4.13.4 no matter what. Shame.

Considering the sheer number of downloads, and the small amount of error reports, I would say you didn't do it right.

Good! The Megapatch however, won't remove 4.13.X files: SFS, skins, missions...

Running the Steam version here, and I think I understand why it's not working for some people.

The problem here is that your instructions are missing a step.
Here is what they say:
1) Make sure IL-2 is NOT in your /Program Files/ folder
*MISSING STEP!!!*
2) Copy the whole folder "4.13.X Unpatcher" to your IL-2 root folder
3) Run (as admin if possible) the file "4.13.X Unpatcher/4.13.X INT to 4.12.2 INT.bat"
4) Delete the folder "4.13.X Unpatcher"

The problem is that the file comes not as a folder, but as a zip.
What you've neglected to say is that the .zip needs to be extracted to create a folder with the same name.
Hence on my 7zip application, I right clicked on your zip file and chose 'extract to IL-2 4.13.X Unpatcher/
This created a non zip folder with that name. I then placed that folder in the IL2 root, went into the folder and ran the .bat file from there, and the patch worked.

From reading people's comments I can see that they likely did what I initially did: extracted the contents of the .zip into their IL2 root and tried to run the .bat from there. This does not work!

If you rewrite your instructions with the extra step added, i.e. transform the .zip into a normal folder, THEN place the folder into the IL2 root directory, you'll find that the problem will go away!

Great little utility by the way!  :)

So I had the GOG version of the game and also Windows 10.  The .bat file didn't work when extracted as explained in previous posts, but what I was able to do was manually delete and move the appropriate files by examining the .bat file.  I'd like to thank everyone in the thread for their help but ultimately sometimes the only way is the hard way, I suspect it has to do with my old version of Windows causing issues with the .bat file.  Now on to installing VP :D
