I wanted to play Watch Dogs. I saw Uplay had an update. I downloaded the Uplay update. Watch Dogs didn't work anymore like it always used to. At Starting the launcher, it does its job, than just says Watch Dogs stopped working.Great work Uplay.

If Watch_Dogs itself is crashing then I would recommend disabling the Overlay and trying again.
That's really the only thing we've changed that's likely to cause this problem.

Let us know if it helps. It might help us find out why it's happening and if it's driver/hardware related.

Disabling the overlay did the trick for me, although, before I realized to disable it, I also verified the game files, which caused also problems, when the game reinstalled it's components (I had to cancel the process several times and restart the Uplay).

Why Ubisoft have a beta option for Uplay and they still roll out broken updates/upgrades for those, who aren't in that program... expecting something other than that is probably too much considering the fiascoes from recent years.
