    Just reinstall the ubisoft game launcher: uninstall it, download installer from here:
    http://static3.cdn.ubi.com/orbit/lau...rInstaller.exe
    and install it again. If windows vista/7/8 click on installer with right mouse ****on and choose "run as administrator".

    Did you check your antivirus? Maybe it removes file ubiorbitapi_r2.dll, some antivirus software sometimes detect this file as virus what is false positive.

    Temporary disable antivirus, reinstall ubisoft game launcher as i described it before, go to antivirus settings and create new exception for file mentioned in my previous post.

    yeah i checked all of the ubisoft help section before asking in the forums. i also sent support tickets to ubisoft and steam for any help they may offer. I am getting so annoyed with this now
