Help with start - end installation order

Recommended Posts


I've been having some real frustrations with installing CMBN.  I bought engine 1 and 2 some years ago and I've just "rediscovered" the game.  I've recently bought the 3/4 engines.

I'm using Win10

All seemed ok until I tried to install engine 3 after patch 2.12.  The install just freezes...rather, it's installing all the engine 3 folders but then it duplicates file after file in multiple Data folders.


So..see below for what I'm doing, in order. Does it look correct?   And thanks for anybody who can help.  I'll post a help ticket if nobody is able to help here.


CMBN CW bundle engine 1

1.11 patch

CMBN engine 2 

CMBN Market Garden

patch 2.01

patch  2.11

patch  2.12

CMBN engine 3 (NB the version I've downloaded from Battlefront.com, as part of the $15 engine3/4 upgrade, seems to be 3.11, it doesn't give me the option to download/install 3.0) 

patch 3.12  

CMBN engine 4

CMBN Battlepack

CMBN vehicles pack

Maybe but that is way to complicated and error prone. You seem to have the v4 upgrade so download the full installer (not the upgrade install) and run that.

Then you are done.

To activate it you need to enter your version 3 and 4 keys and the key for any module and packs you have.

And that's it.

Many thanks for your help Ian


I'm being a bit dense I suspect, but from your answer I take it that do not install engine 1 or engine 2 or engine 3?   I download all the files though for 1/2/3/4 but I ONLY install engine 4?  


thanks again

Yes, that's worked - thanks Ian

However, I don't seem to have the engine 4 Battle Pack or the Vehicle Pack installed. 


So, using the Full Installer for engine 4, does anybody know how I then activate the battle pack and the vehicle pack?  The instructions on the Help section refer to going back to v3, which I really don't want to do as that was my initial problem


Thanks again to anybody who can help

Download and install CM:BN V:4 Full Installer, then input all of your activation codes one at a time.....This is where problems can sometimes occur, but a support ticket will sort those out in a jiffy, should they arise.

Ah, thanks Sgt - I'll submit a support ticket


I'll get there in the end ;)

Just discovered the 'switch' that allows me to validate new products in the CMBN folder. Looks like I'm set.  Thanks again for all your help chaps.  I'll go and cancel that help ticket.
