After several uninstalls and re-installations i also uninstalled the Ubisoft Game Launcher (UGL). After that i installed the game (which probably installs the latest version of UGL) and now it works
The only problem i have now is that when i enter the game i'm not online. It's saying that "the passed-in key does not activate the expected privilage". Anyone knows something about this. I think i might have entered the wrong key (but the application accepted it !!!).
Thanks and i hope the game will work for all of you.
stuck with splash screen and messages that the game is already running.
interesting to see that this is a two year old problem that ubisoft never bothered to fix.
Update drivers? thats a poor excuse to direct attention away from faulty programming and no game support.
Would love to hear if anyone has a working solution.
