I've got the same problem, as do many others.

I've tried all the drivers and settings changes (including the AA and AF).

I was able to run the demo version, I just had to run the install 3 times because of some Windows Installer error, I'm not installing it again.

I click on the icon on the desktop, it shows the splash screen, the screen flickers and pops back to the desktop. It just plain won't load.

I've browsed the forums and had no luck finding ANY answer in the hundred or so threads which discuss this problem, seems many of them go unanswered.

nVidia GeForce2 MX400 (64MB)

Damned technical support is only open M-F (most gamers play on the WEEKEND) and their SUPER USELESS FAQ is just rediculous.

The game settings might be defaulting to higher than your system can handle (ie MX440). Try this.
Run the program \farcry\bin32\farcry configurator.exe set all the settings to low and try to run the game. If it loads, you can enter options and try to pinpoint what is making the startup crash.

I've set everything to low or off, I've configured the video driver to run both "Application" and manual and it won't start. This isn't my first time installing a high-requirement game, I always start at the bottom and then start pressing the accelerator. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I know the demo would run with some settings at medium, but this is rediculous. Does the game at least create a log which might aid in resolving some of these problems?

I have all the drivers and patches

Once the game goes to the splash screen it stops and the disc stops running also.
