Assassin's Creed 2 gets stuck at the cut-scene where:

Leonardo DiVinci repairs your hidden blade, just as you get it.

I can open the map, options dialog, and change weapons but the cut-scene will not proceed.

I have tried replaying this memory several times, but it does not help.

I am running AC2 on Steam via UPlay (Windows 7, SP1, 64 bit). This is a legit copy.

Googling around suggests some others are having issues with this scene as well, but the issues seem to be with pirated copies only.

Your using the current version and not using a modified version of the exe right? – Ramhound Feb 11 '13 at 16:20
Yes. Latest version as of last night, updated by Steam. No mods to the game. – BlackSheep Feb 11 '13 at 16:21
What video card do you have? Have you updated drivers recently? – Enigma Feb 25 '13 at 18:53

Press 2 on the keyboard. For some reason they don't want you to use the wheel.
