I know this game is old, but I still love it. I went to install it the other day, and hit the error below when trying to activate online. Both Ubisoft and Tryedia forwarded a generic reply saying to "turn off popup blockers, turn off dowload agents, and lower IE security", but this didn't help. Trymedia has refused to help beyond that and Ubi hasn't replied back for a week now.
I've tried this now on multiple machines with fresh installs of both XP and Win7, but the same error happens every time when activating, (see link).
Can anyone else install FarCry1 and activate? I'm using a direct download copy I purchased via the ubi site back in 2008. Are there any ways to get the license working manually? Since UBI won't help and I have a legit/paid copy, I'm considering this "abandonware" and I think this is fair game for any hack method for getting it working.
Thanks for the suggestion, but Ubisoft support hasn't replied in weeks now. So far all they have provided the generic suggestion related to IE security, downloaders, and popup blockers, but this doesn't appear to be the issue since it won't even activate on a fresh XP install. (ticket 120319-000529 if anyone from UBI can help)
Can anyone else out there successfully install and activate FC1? I'm installing from the digital download version, not a CD.
