    Uplay won't start at all

    I just installed Uplay after getting AC3 with my Video card.

    After installing Uplay, and double clicking the icon, it won't start. Looking at my processes, it shows Uplay load up for about 3 seconds, then unload.

    Is there a fix for this? Is there an older version of Uplay that may not have this problem?

    Edit: I modified the setitngs in Windows Error reporting so that I can see what's happening. This is the error that is shows.

    Uplay Launcher has stopped working

    To resolve this issue, you will need to manually install or reinstall the Uplay software, which handles the online authentication in the game. Please note that this software MUST be installed to play the game, and cannot be uninstalled or disabled.

    1. First, you will need to uninstall the "Ubisoft Game Launcher" or "Uplay" from the 'Add/Remove Programs' (Windows XP) / 'Installed Programs' (Windows Vista and 7) icon in your computer's control panel. It's possible that the "Ubisoft Game Launcher/Uplay" software will not be listed if you have already uninstalled it, or the game. If so, you can skip this step.

    2. After uninstalling the software, you will need to manually delete any leftover files in the C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher (32-bit versions of Windows) or C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher (64-bit versions of Windows) folder.
    NOTE: Please do not skip this step, it is very important. If this folder does not exist, please go to the next step.

    3. Reinstall Uplay PC from here http://static3.cdn.ubi.com/orbit/lau...yInstaller.exe

    4. Try resetting your HOSTS file by following the steps in the following Microsoft article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/9720...xItForMeAlways
