I've tried to download/install the ubi.com software and (after downloading) when the install begins I get the message that ubi.com software is already installed and the install then quits.

I've uninstalled FB and I simply can't find where the ubi.com folder/software is. I have a directory called ubi.com but it's empty.

Any ideas would be welcome.

Uninstall ubi.com. Then go to program files and delete the ubi.com folder.

Then, install and run RegCleaner: http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail.php3?fid=963771680

On the main page look for ubi entries that remain. If any of these show, delete them:
Ubi Soft, Game Service
Ubi Soft, Game Service Games
Ubi Soft, AutoRTPatch
Ubi Soft Entertainment Inc., Ubi.com

Then go to tools > registry cleanup > do them all. Delete what comes up. That should take care of any leftover entries. Reboot. Then reinstall ubi.com.

noooo the way to sort this is simple, i got this direct from UBI, no need to mess about in the registry.................

ok download this file, http://gamingzone.ubisoft.com/packages/GameService.exe
Go into add remove programs on your PC in control panel and uninstall UBI COM ok NOT THE GAME.... Then go to and make sure that your folder C:\Document and Setting\USERNAME\Application Data\ubi.com\Core\ is deleted..

after you have uninstalled UBI COM and removed that folder run the zip file and it will put a new copy of the Game server on your pc, then try to reconnect.It should update.

But you need to remove UBI COM by using add remove programs and that folder too before you reinstall as it will say it is detecting that another version is installed.

Probably because he can't get on HL. I haven't been able to get into HyperLobby for the last few days from this machine. Weird though because I can log onto HL just fine from the FB server.

I'm also not able to get ubi software to work on this machine either. I have no idea what's going on!

Hi Ivan:

It's because there are a few servers in which the ONLY way to reach them is through Ubi.com. I've got both HL and ASE and both work fine but you can't join the servers in question through either of these. Go figure.

In addition, thanks much to all for the help in getting ubi.com installed. Very much appreciated.

This did the trick. While I'm sure that Weather_Man's method would have worked too, I tried yours first as it avoided any registry alterations. Again, thanks to all for their suggestions.
