Sh5 Won't start
I have just bought SH5 on DVD. I have installed and updated it but when I launch the application it refuses to start. On Uplay it says that the game is running but it then times out after 2 minutes. I have unistalled it and Uplay many times but still no success so was wondering if anyone on here has a fix? P.S. I am running windows 7 64bit
Edit 1: Managed to get the opening cinematic to load when im in offline mode or I run it in safe mode. But it takes up about a 1/3rd of the screen and closes itself after the cinematic.
Edit 2: Also going to put up my computer specs if that will help out:
Windows 7 64bit Home Premium
Intel Core Quad CPU Q8300 2.50gGHz
Nvidia GeForce GT 220

You could contact Ubi Support and see if they can help you.
I know when you are using Windows 7, games do not work well if they are installed in the default location Program Files (86). You could uninstall SH5 again and install it in another folder. I have a folder called Games that I use. Try this and see if it helps.
Another thing you might want to try is downloading Directx 9.0c. When you did the install it may have asked you if you wanted to install Directx 9.0c, not sure. There are files in Directx 9.0c that are needed to play games. You may have Directx 10 or 11 or both but you still need some of the files in Directx 9.0c.
Here is a web site that has Directx 9.0c - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl...ils.aspx?id=35
