View Full Version : PC Uplay unable to verify installed files of Far Cry 3

I recently re-installed Far Cry 3 using my physical copy because I didn't want to download the whole game. My internet connection is not that fast. After installing it and downloading the patches, clicking on Far Cry 3 only starts Uplay to download 9.8gb of data which I assume is the whole game. I tried using the "locate the installed files" option by going to Program Files(x68) > Ubisoft > Far Cry 3 but it says that it cannot validate the files. What should I do?

Usually you let it download a bit (few MB) then stop (not remove) the download - now you copy the completed FC3 install over into the Uplay game location folder. Once done it should be able to verify the files hence completing the installation by installing the DX libraries.

There are as few threads here handling this situation
