I've downloaded the game installer twice (thanks for deleting it without asking that was nice to have to download a 20 GB installer twice in one day) and installed the game twice.
Each time I've downloaded the 1.7GB patch file (twice on that, just to be sure the patch wasn't corrupted) and both times the patch renders the game unable to launch.
I am able to play the unpatched game with no problems, but each time I run the patch, I get the following error:
It says that the program can't run because LeadD3DXenon.dll is missing from my system. It recommends a reinstallation.
Playing unpatched now but would appreciate any help anyone could provide regarding this issue.
Another game broken by it's "patch"?
Hi guys, please contact Technical Support so they can troubleshoot with you, the link is in my signature.
Try downloading thus providing the DLL to the game here (don't worry link is safe, no virus, virustotal link here).
Try copying said DLL file to either game folder or Windows/System32 folder. If it doesn't help, try reinstall. However 90% of such issues are resolved by simply providing the DLL like I told you.

But thank you for the reply anyway. I appreciate the attempt to help!
I called tech support and was provided the following email with instructions on a work around for resolving this issue until they stop breaking the game under default settings:
So, for whatever reason, default settings seem to break the game when patching.there's a work around for the problem you're seeing.
Navigate to the following directory:
Locate the following file:
Open this file in Notepad or another text editor
Search for and change the "WindowStyleFinal=1" option to 0 or 2.
0 = Windowed
1 = Fullscreen (default)
2 = Windowed Fullscreen
0 and 2 should both allow the game to start.
I have confirmed this solved my problem.
my UBISOFT-AUTOPATCH is so slow, it takes me 10 hours do download the blacklist patch.. i installed the patch and everything seems to be fine. now there is another patch, i think the same one cuz hes same size then the one b4.
is this normal for UPLAY??
BTW: since the update i cant see my blacklist game in the GAMES folder on uplay, only when i go in offline-modus.
WHATS WRONG WITH THAT ****?!?!

The funny thing was, is that I didn't know about this issue, I know now, but after I installed the game and patched it to the latest version right away, without starting it first, it didn't create any folder in C:\Users\user\Documents\Ubisoft\Blacklist with videosettings.ini file
