Did a fresh install for UPlay and it has been looping between updating and restarting for the last 30 minutes. I even tried to remove and reinstall it, and run it as administrator. As everything else runs fine, and I have never had any problem with other software installed (never). I have come to the conclusion that UPlay is just garbage, and as they say you can not polish a turd.
Close ALL browser windows that you have open (mostly any that are signed into uPlay, as when updating, the browser locks 'npuplaypchub.dll' and the updater can't touch it).
Launch uPlay again and let it update. You may need to un/reinstall first. Just be sure to close any browsers that are signed into uPlay.
Same thing happening to me, I recently purchased Assassin's Creed 2 and 3, from Steam but can't play either game because the Uplay goes into a download/close/reopen inifnite loop. Please, help, or I want Ubisoft's working phone number so I can ask them to fix this PROBLEM or give me my money back.
If Ubisoft doesn't at least make it seem they are looking into this problem, I am gonna demand a refund from them, as Steam/Valve already told me they can't do anything about Uplay. Make the games work, Ubisoft, both AC2 and AC3, I actually have a solution: GET RID OF UPLAY, it's bad for the players, and bad for your company, makes Ubisoft look bad in the eyes of consumers.
The issue has been reported to the team. We might need more info to pin-point the cause of this loop though, can you try the following and let us know if it solves the issue?
- Add Uplay PC to your firewall exception list.
- Uninstall Uplay PC and reinstall the latest version from this link: http://static3.cdn.ubi.com/orbit/lau...yInstaller.exe
- As suggested by Maniac536 above, log off your Uplay account from the forum or Uplay.com, close all browser windows, and start Uplay PC again
If you have this issue, can you also share the content of your launcher_log file which you will find in C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\logs ?
Please also specify if your game is a Steam game or not, and what OS you have installed.
