Help - installation without downloading

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I've bought a new computer and I'm planning to migrate my IL-2 there. Now since I'm on a metered connection, I'd like to avoid downloading entire sim once again - is there a way I can use the existing install on my old machine to transfer the bulk of data locally and download only the necessary files, thus minimizing downloaded data? Will simply copying the entire folder do the trick, with installer only fixing it?

 

Thnx!

When I built my new pc I reused my old storage drive so I copied my BOX install to it then copied it back to my new pc main drive put a shortcut from the new folder on my desktop and launched from there, everything worked fine.

If you're using Steam then you can move the game into the appropriate folder inside the steam directory and when you go to install the game, Steam will 'discover preexisting files'.
