Solved: Ubisoft Game Launcher Crashes

Q: Solved: Ubisoft Game Launcher Crashes

I tryed playing AC2, it launches the Ubisoft Game Launcher for the DRM. It gets to logging me into the servers, then the PC hangs. Shortly after the PC restarts. I then purchased Splinter Cell: Conviction and the same thing happened, so it must be the launcher is the problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled the games and the Launcher. The patch for both games and the Game Launcher updated automaticly. I got the same problem. I installed the games on another PC with no problems. I updated my video card and DirectX drivers with no effect. Please Help!

My DxDiag report is the attached .txt file.

According to "http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/" my PC passes the minimum requirements for both games.

I have always played AC2 without any issues untill now and all other games work fine.

Any other questions, please ask.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Solved: Ubisoft Game Launcher Crashes

Just to add, I suspect the Launcher's directory on the C drive may be corrupted. If this is so, how do I fix it or how can I install the Launcher to my D drive? The games are located there but I don't have the option to put the Launcher there.

Every time I try to play assassin's creed 2 on my PC, it updates my game launcher. This is fine with me, but it downloads 3/4 of the file and then it crashes. I uninstalled the game and reinstalled the game and installed the latest patch. Still the same problem. Attached is a screenshot of the game launcher updating, when it gets to the red line it just crashes. Please help!

I have an ongoing issue where I log onto the glyph launcher, log onto my server, play for a while, sometimes hours with no issue but then BOOM, the game just closes on me and I'm booted back to the launcher. I have to push the PLAY button again, log into the server again, but it seems once the game boots me out then the crashing becomes more frequent.

I at first reported it to Trion support (useless) all they do is copy and paste previous responses from previous games sometimes not even removing the other game titles from it, but all in all I have spent over a month with them and I have:

1. Expanded my paging file to initial size of 1X RAM size max size 2X RAM size (to handle the memory of the game)
2. Switched from DirectX11 down to DirectX9 and back again. (in game)
3. Lowered my FPS (frames per second) to 100 (in game)
4. Switched off Multithread rendering and VSync (in game)
5. They have also had me change the priority of the game archeage.exe to high to see if that helps and it doesn't
( I would start the launcher, log onto the game and the server, go into the character screen, then cntrl + alt + delete into task manager and right click the process and set the priority to high then go back into the game)

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Well one thing is that you can take a screenshot by doing the PrintScreen button for the whole screen or ALT+PrintScreen if you want to get the selected window. Just paste it in MSPaint (or your favorite image program)

Background: Hey guys! I play a free to play game called eurogunz, website is euro-gunz.eu . I have always been able to play this game just fine on my Dell Optiplex with Windows XP. No problems at all since the summer of last year. All you have to do to start the game is start the launcher, then hit start game. Well, recently I have been pressing the start game button and nothing comes up. The launcher will just disappear and my computer screen will just stay normal as if no command was given to it.

What I have tried: Uninstalling recently downloaded programs especially free anti-viruses which could be the cause of this. I have also made an exception in firewall for this game. When I went to my "C" drive and tried putting everything related to avast antivirus, it won't allow me to saying something like I don't have a sufficient disk or something. My friends have told me to uninstall eurogunz and redownload it which I have done numerous times and still does not work. To be honest though, when I go to control panel -> remove programs, eurogunz and avast anti virus isn't there. Is this supposed to be happening?

How you can help: post here to help me !

Date problem started occurring: 2/4/12

A:My game launcher will not start

ok, im no pro, so this may be a shot in the dark and false hope.

you said that it used to run fine on XP, so what operating system are you using now, vista, windows 7? if so that may be your problem. from what i have seen eurogunz looks as though its a european port of a Japanese game (please do correct me if im wrong), meaning that updating it to windows 7 may be a bit tricky.

also if you are using windows vista or 7 it may be having problems with UAC (user account controls). thats the box that pops up asking for permisions to run a program, but sometimes it just wont pop up, and it wont run the program. if this is the case, type UAC into your start bar search bar, and change it to a lower setting. if that dosent work change it to its lowwest, if that dosent work, put it back to where it was before.

I'm having terrible trouble with my PC.


Windows XP Professional (no service packs. I tried service pack 2, but it wouldn't let me install anything afterwards, so I did a system restore)
AMD Athlon XP 2400+ 2.0GHz
1.0 GB RAM
256MB Nvidea GeForce FX 5500 with latest drivers
and I'm running Directx 9.0C

It's a homebuilt box, not from any major company.

I've installed and tried plenty of games, most of which crash with an error message asking if I want to reboot, and the worst of all, Morrowind just randomly locks up (and I want to play that game so bad!). Battlefield 1942 and Vietnam let me play for a few minutes before showing me an error message, but Soldier of Fortune 2 just goes ahead and shows it right as soon as you start shooting. The only game I've tried that actually works without crashing or freezing is Grand Theft Auto Vice City.....

I spent an hour or 2 on the phone with Microsoft Technical support, and they told me to do all of the basic troubleshooting, like updating video drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling the game, uninstalling and reinstalling the video drivers, turning off the sound accelleration....and nothing worked, so he said there wasn't anything else that could be done. it's rediculous how this happens with almost everything I try, especially since it's a totally legit copy of windows xp. if it was a bootleg copy, then that might explain it, but it's not.

This has been happening for a few months now, but is happening more and more often. After a while of playing a game (Most recently Dead Rising 2, but has also happened in Starcraft 2 and Minecraft.) my computer will crash. The keyboard will turn off, and my speakers will make a a fairly loud, low pitched buzzing sound. The only way to fix it is a hard reboot. All my drivers are up to date, I just vacuumed my computer to make sure it isn't a dust issue, I ran a virus scan with no results, cleaned my registry, and the computer is in a cool, well ventilated room. This does not seem to happen while I'm surfing the web, just in games. Any help is appreciated.

Sorry if this is the wrong section, didn't think it belonged in games as it is an issue that affects my computer, not an issue in a specific game.

I'm posting this in both the Hardware and Games forums.

When running some newer games, such as Half-Life 2: Episode One, F.E.A.R., F.E.A.R.: Extraction Point or The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, the game will play perfectly for approximately 5-10 minutes when suddenly the computer will crash to a plain black screen. The PC power remains on but must be hard reset. Occasionally, when the game crashes, I will briefly see a screen of small random colored boxes (artifacts?) before the screen goes black. This problem never happens when I run old games. While the games are running, there aren't any problems at all. My computer is able to run them with no hiccups at full specs. I've tried lowering the game specs to the minimum settings but still get the same problem. Here are some of my PC's specs:

Pentium IV 3.0 Ghz HT
Nvidia GeForce 6800 GT OC
400W power supply
Windows XP SP2

No viruses or malware. There are no sounds/beeps when the PC crashes. I've updated to the newest Nvidia drivers and have also tried rolling back to various older drivers, but to no avail. There are no error messages when I restart my PC. The inside of my case is clean and free of dust. The PC and video card fans are working fine and running silently.

Any ideas what might be causing my computer to crash? Is it hardware or software? Thanks in advance!

I've been posting this all over the place, been talking to 2K tech support, etc. and so far no one has a solution for me that actually works.

The gist of this is that I can start up a game, no problem, play for as long as I want and save it. If I then click on "Load GAme" after selecting "Single Player", the game crashes.

Oddly, I recently discovered that if I start up STeam in off-line mode, the game does not crash when I click on Load Game.

The last thing that 2K told me was that most likely KERNALBASE.DLL was corrupt, and that I should run "SFC /SCANNOW" from the command prompt to repair it, but it has found no errors (ran it 3 times on the advice of 2k -- still no luck).

Things that I've tried include deleting my INI files, deleting all my save games, totally reinstalling the game from scratch, reinstalling Direct X (it won't install -- it says I have the most recent version), upgrading my video drivers, booting without loading any programs, turning off my virus scan, etc.

The game used to work. I actually haven't been playing it for a while, so I can't tell you what specific things that changed on my system may have broken it.

Hi, and thanks for your time.

I am having a problem with all my computer games crashing after 5-10 minutes. It does not seem to matter what games, or what I am doing in them, they just freeze and/or crash to desktop. There have been a few BSOD, but they are rare.

My computer is a couple of years old, and has always had a crash problem with games. But recently, I had to put in a new power source (a fan died on the original one), and the problem has gotten much worse. Before, the crashes, if they did happen, would be an hour or two in, now its down to 5 minutes, tops. I suspect that there has always been a problem with the hardware, it is just blatantly obvious now.

Computer Specs:

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6400+ 3.22 GHz
Ram: 4 Sticks, 6.00 GB Total of Types: 2X Crucial 240-Pin Unbuff DDR2 PC2-6400 AND 2X Corsair XMS2 DDR2 1GB Sticks

About 3-4 months ago, my uncle placed a GeForce 9500GT video card. It worked nice for games like Dekaron,Rappelz,Oblivion but just about a week ago it crashed on COD2. I thought it was normal but it happened on Left 4 dead too. I started to get worried and thought it was normal but then it kept on crashing on Portal(1st stage, at around 20-30 seconds on the timer) and almost any game i borrow from my friends. It crashed on Warcraft 3, Overlord, Drift City(only in Undercity Mission). Im kinda worried now maybe you guys can help me.

It crashes and sometimes the sound loops but sometimes it doesnt. Im not sure if it's only the monitor because some of my games cant be shut by using ALT F4 and i cant check if it shuts down well. When i unplug,plug and turn it on, there are no warnings or things that say it recovered from an error.It just starts normally. Some people say i have to upgrade my Video card driver but im worried because when i installed a driver on my Laptop , i couldnt turn it on. SO WHAT DO I DO?

I've been haveing some trouble with either game crashes or full bluescreen (error 101).
I WAS useing twin GeForce 9600GTs in SLI, I recently upgraded to a HD 7870.
The problem did not change, suggesting that video drivers are not the source... Although altering the drivers with the 9600GTs did seem to effect if the game crashed or full bluescreen crash.
So basicly, the PC works fine untill I play a game (high end and/or minecraft... simple games do not trigger it) at that point, you are on borrowed time. Around 15-120 min. into gameplay, either the game will crash (fatal error bug or no bug report) OR the PC will freeze briefly followed by a blue screen BCCode 101. (Windows 7 64)

I did a simple RAM check, but I did not leave it running for long. I have 3 sticks of 2GB in there, and haveing removed one at a time did not effect the problem. (IE: I took out each stick, leaveing 2 in for a quick and easy method to find a possable faulty RAM chip).

Thus far, it would seem that the CPU in at haveing timeing issues with a core.
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6400+ 3.2 GHz

Could it be overheating? Everything seems to work fine untill I start a game, then it crashes out roughly 30 min into playing. I'm consitering removeing the heat sink, reapplying the thermal paste, and checking if that has any effect. This much I am qualified to do; but is there a way to monitor processor heat levels durring gameplay (I'm sure standard bios heat checks would not show problems). ... Read more

I'll keep this short and sweet because I know how busy you guys are.
I built a gaming computer from scratch, there were a lot of problems even getting it working initially this time, as compared to the last one I built that I had zero problems with ever.
I am getting a lot of BSOD's, games freeze and crash, movies freeze and crash, and streaming does too. In addition, I am getting an error occasionally with the GPU that tells me it has timed out and reset the GPU. I used the windows recommended fix for this and set the response timeout time to 8 seconds, since I have done so I have only seen this problem once. I was wondering if I had too little power for my system, but I have seen threads with similar problems that have plenty of power. I followed the instructions to the best of my ability, and you should find all of the information you have asked for below. Please don't hesitate to ask for anything else you may need.

IMO, the suggested fixes for the TDR timeout of the video card only conceals the problem - it doesn't fix it.If the card is timing out, then fixing the cause of the timeout is preferable (IMO) to just lengthening the timeout. Unfortunately it appears that the system has pirated software.Please get a legitimate copy installed and we'll be glad to help.Here's suggestions on how to ensure that your version is legitimate:  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/genuinePlease be aware that we may not be able to fix it (as the hacks that were done to activate it will cause the OS to behave differently than we expect it to).

Secondly, the forum rules prohibit assisting with pirated software - so the topic would be closed if that is the case.As a courtesy, I will offer an analysis of your issues using the reports you provided.I will not answer any questions about the analysis until the system is made legitimate.If you do make it legitimate, please submit a new set of reports for us to check.Just FYI, sometimes the owner won't know about this.  So here's 2 scenarios that might ring a bell:- if they had a "friend" help with the computer - and the "friend" installed a pirated copy.- or they used a copy that they had from another OEM computer.  The OEM license is tied to the hardware that it came from - so you can't just use it on another system (that means that it's pirated).And here's the analysis...

I have a copy of Far Cry that I have not installed on my computer. Because the four discs are in paper disc envelopes (I got it for free a while ago when I bought my videocard), one of the discs got a bad scratch on it. Now the game will not install. I still have the cd key, so if there is a way to download it without the cd, then that would be really helpful. Thanks.

If any of you have a radeon card (might apply to nvidia cards too) and you have been experiencing random crashes to desktop / reboots / VPU Recover windows ...Go into you r bios and change the vid card core voltage to 1.7v, if 1.7 doesnt fucntion, use 1.8. That should fix 95% of all of you crashing problems.

I had tried everything to fix these crashes, formatting HD, reinstalling windows...I even bought a new power supply. None of it worked but since i switched to 1.7v I have had no problems in any games and no crashes at all. It was set to the default 1.64v unbeknownst to be.

Anyways if youve tried everything like me...give it a try I think that it will fix it.

A:A FIX for random game crashes and Vid Card crashes!

Ummmmmmmmm... I'm sceptical... I think voltages generally aren't meant to be messed with... if you do, just know that you may run the risk of frying your card...
...right??? not all cards run on the same voltage, and if it's supposed to run on something lower, it could get fried, right?? and then if it's supposed to run higher than that, MAYBE some bugs would get fixed, but wouldn't the card also run slower??

Which radeon card do you have anyway?

EDIT actually, it looks like the standard voltage for AGP cards is 1.5v... upping the voltage will (I believe) up performance a little, as well as heat generated. Too high a voltage, however, will result in BSODs and the like.

I have a HP Windows Vista computer. I have the Womens Murder Club game and have played it through one time a while ago. I have started playing the game again and on Investigation 7, the game crashes and I get Critical error. File "crash.dmp" has been saved to "C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Flood Light Games/WMC/" I have updated the drivers and my son has tried several things to fix this problem to no avail. I am not familiar with computer technology and do not know what to do. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game several times and it still crashes. What will fix this problem. Thank you in advance.

A:Any Game Crashes

1) dont type in all caps....its considered yelling and its somewhat hard to read. also, paragraphs and punctuation are our friends

2) boot into safe mode (tap f8 before windows starts and choose safe mode

3) right click on "my computer" select properties, hardware, device manager.

4) click the plus sign next to "display device", highlight all entries and delete them.

5) reboot into normal mode.

6) reinstall drivers.
if that doesnt work, then we need a little more information.

1) how much system RAM do you have?

2) give me an example of one game that is crashing

3) what is the EXACT (word for word) error message.

Hey, everyone. I've been having the same problem for more than 8 months and cant seem to find a solution.

Backround: bought counter-strike source, was running it with a ati 9200 se, wanted to increase my fps and graphics. So I went out and bought an bfg gforce 6600gtoc, another 512 of pc2700 ram, and a 550 watt p.s.

Now whenever I try to play source I get a datacache.dll error (they're working on it, hopefully solved soon). But when I try to play FEAR, or BF2, I get constant crashes to desktop, while loading a map or such.

Sidenote: I play counter-strike 1.6 and condition zero all the time with no crashes.

Here's what I'm running.

Pentium 4, 2.8ghz
1 gig pc2700 ram
gforce 6600gtoc
some 80 gig h/d
ThameStar 550 watt atx p.s
(all the latest drivers...except mobo drivers)

After reading another post on this forum, it seems that my cheapo power supply might be the culprite? How can I know for sure?

I'm really stumped and just want to play these games.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance

It could be the power supply and also some left over crap from the old ATI driver. Also the 6600GTs run very hot so they need alot of cooling.

I recently bought a new stick of 512mb (pc3200) double sided hynix ddr which is exactly the same as the stick already in my computer, same speed, same brand. my computer is: Abit KV7
Athlon xp 2500+
hynix 512mb ddr
geforce 4 mx 440
And ever since i put the new stick of ram in every time i go to play most of my games eg, doom3 and painkiller it comes up with a windows error and makes the game crash, but when i take the either of the sticks out and leave 1 remaining everything works fine. Since both the ram sticks are exactly the same i was thinking maybe there is something wrong with my motherboard but i dont know, someone please help.

Ok, so I play WoW, HL2 and have been trying to play the new TF2 but my game freezes up while I am playing at random times and i have to manually restart my computer to be able to do anything. I have a feeling that it has something to do with directx because a friend of mine suggested that I change my 3d engine to opengl instead of directx which I have done on WoW and now it doesn't crash. I should also note that these games didn't use to crash either. However running the game on opengl makes it much laggier and if i can pinpoint the problem it would be a huge relief because right now I'm thinking about buying a new computer.

Processor Amd Athlon 64 Processor 3200+
1gb ram
directx version 9.0c
Geforce 6600 GT

All drivers have been updated as well

A:Game Crashes

Could be an overheating problem, the PC is protecting itself from damage by shutting down rather than damaging it self. Check the PSU, all the Fans esp. the CPU on the CPU itself. Also make sure all the PCI cards are slotted in securely.

If possible install a tool the monitor PC temperatures to see where the issue is.

It only has this crash when I play games.

All right here's the deal. I've tried everything me and my friends can think of and can't solve this one. Everytime I load a game everything works fine until I press a button on the keyboard. I can move the mouse around and look all around a 3d game but can't actually play. This happens with every game I try to load. This wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't already reformatted and have it doing the same thing. If that wasn't bad enough my laptop that I've had for 5 months is doing the same thing now. this is bad cause they have 2 different configurations and are running different operating systems. Any help would be appreciated and any info you need is yours. I'm just going through withdrawals at not being able to play.

If it only happens with games that need a lot of resourses then it might be a grafic card or driver issue. Alternatively the cooling system on you grafic card might need to be cleaned.

I'm sure this has been talked about quite a bit but I can't seem to find any fix for my issue that works for me.

Every game I have crashes. It doesn't happen all the time and it is completely random. It doesn't crash when I'm not playing a game. When it crashes my game the last sound I heard just continuously loops and it won't let me alt+tab or ctrl+alt+del and I have to do a hard reset. This didn't happen with Vista 32 bit with the same hardware.

I love 64 bit Vista and I would really hate to have to go back to 32 bit if at all possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
