Hello all Comrades Very Happy

My god here a full tutorial! It is not perfect but I think it is understand-able.

Here is the procedure to install BF1942 CD version + FH.
Note: I know some people can meet (get) problems if they do not deactivate UAC on Windows 7.
But it is a question of choice.

If you want deactivate UAC on windows 7 OS please visit these following links:
