I have the problem that the stupid installer of the Mappack 5 requires an installation of BF, but i had to reinstall windows while still using my old bf, so it cant find any installion of course. Now i tried to install 1.61 patch, samething there, "no valid installation found"... Is there anyway to install it without reinstalling bf?

As far as I know only if you would unpack the installer and put everything into proper directories manualy. Just uninstall/remove Bf1942 and install all over again, it's not a problem, isn't it?

It's even more time cosuming (not unpacking, but installing manualy), so I suggest full reinstall, otherwise, search for something that extracts this format.

The problem is that it's an installation packed file, that means some kind of packing foramt, but belive me, if it takes few minutes to an automized process, it will take longer to do it manualy. But you wan't to do it your self, so you must find out by wich program it has been created, get it and unpack it, I doubt that there will be separate unpacking programms. Consult Lobo to get that knowledge. Sorry that I can't help more.
