So, I made a license transfer with my friend. I signed into his profile to download a DLC or game. Then, when it finished downloading, I signed out of his profile and went back onto mine. Then I tried to play the game/DLC, however the game refuses to launch, and the DLC for it is also unavailable. The only way I can play them is if I'm on his profile. Why can't I play them on my account?

I also made a transfer with another friend and tried to download the games/DLC, but I can't play them on my account. Why not?

  • Far Cry 4 uses uPlay, correct? I'd start with their support first.

    You are aware license transfer means you are giving the game? As in.. you don't have it anymore, you can't play it. It is now theirs, not yours.

  • are you even able to transfer a license? A quick google search found the only means of transfering a game is through contacting Ubisoft directly, with a realllllly good reason

  • If you attempted to get the game working between two people, you should have just bought two copies.. Commented Jul 20, 2015 at 1:19

License transfer means you gave the game to someone else. It is now their game so your account is no longer authorized to play it.
