I'm trying to play Watchdogs, however, EVERY time I try and open Uplay it crashed, I've tried reinstalling, restarting my PC, restartinig my PC between each step of reinstalling Uplay and everytime it crashed on logging in. Is this a current bug or is this actually fixable?
Here's what I found on the Steam forum, it seems to be working for quite a few people:
I uninstalled Uplay entirely. It leaves files behind! Go to your \program files (x86)\ folder and delete the Ubisoft folder there completely. This was necessary for me to do
I restarted my computer (had to do this too, no restart after removal/installation did nothing for me before)
I re-installed Uplay using the installer found on Uplay's website.
After installation, I restarted again.
I launched the game through Steam and after about a minute, Uplay finally came up without crashing and updated itself.
Re-launch the game through Steam again, and now you can input your key to activate it.
UPDATE: I just used this method to use uPlay, and it worked! Just a quick note, when you first launch the game through Steam it will say it is installing uPlay. Just let it run, and it will end up launching and likely will not need to update itself
