    C. Riva Tuner Statistics Server


    D. DXtory


    E. Motionin Joy


    F. Anti Virus or Firewall software (AVG , Comodo, Bullguard etc.. <-- check settings)

    Please see this Page where it mentions Backround Applications and how you can try to see if one is possibly causing your issue with the game NOT starting or hanging
    https://support.ubi.com/en-US/FAQ/9/...0000000eio0CAA


    And if your running windows 10 make sure you launch both Steam and Uplay as Run As ADMINISTRATOR


    this game was shipped well before windows 10 did ...and yes you may need to take that extra step to run the game
    this games engine was created years before windows 10 shipped and that change may needed to allow the game to write any save files and or configuration files , windows 10 may handle file security \ permissions in a different way, then previous operating systems did.


    if you have a problem... try this


    right click on the games .exe file


    select properties


    select the compatability tab


    check the box that says run as Administrator


    set it to run in a windows 7 compatabilty mode


    you can also run the windows 10 compatablilty trouble shooter from that same window

    also i did hear from a few ppl that the some of the newer AMD drivers have an issue .. make sure you install the latest one
    if ya have an AMD vid chip PLEASE CONTACT AMD SUPPORT RIGHT AWAY ..they had a bug in past drivers that caused both FC3 and 4 to display that same error ..ended up it was yep ....their BAD driver support

    also if your new to the game no this game will not run on a dual core CPU nor will it run on a direct X 10 graphics chip or onboard intel vid chip

    Hi, unfortunately none of these suggestions helped in my case

    Running windows 10, update 1703 (current)
    GPUs = 2xGforce 980Ti (Sli mode)
    Nvidia Gforce driver 384.94 (current)

    Farcry 4 with presumably latest updates auto installed (the Uplay 'verify game files' function found nothing wrong or out of date)

    No 3rd party mods

    I have disabled Team Viewer and have none of the other incompatible apps installed

    I have tried running FarCry 4 in compatibility mode for windows 8 & 7 - no change
    I have set uPlay & Steam and Farcry4 all to run in administrator mode

    I am still getting regular crashes with the windows 10 "Farcry 4 has stopped working" error message

    FarCry Primal meanwhile continues to work perfectly on this setup.
