    Far Cry 4 Fails at Launch

    I have tried disabling all overlays, verifying files, running everything as admin and still no progress past the first window.

    ya try this yet ?

    open your Far Cry 4 folder

    find the bin folder and the games .exe right click it an set to run as Administrator right there

    save and exit

    next go to your far cry 4 game folder again

    find the folder marked SUPPORT \ SOFTWARE

    reinstall DX
    and VC Redist from that folder your .net framework may need to be updated too but win update can and should do that

    NEXT go to add remove Programs

    UNSTALL UPLAY (make sure its not open in task manger first at the time you remove it )

    go to the Uplay web page and DL and install the latest version of Uplay from here


    yes your game can be on a different Drive ..but i think Uplay likes to be on the same drive as windows

    post back if this helps .. if not please contact Ubi Support Directly for your region

    you can find phone number\ support options \ and support hours information @ https://support.ubi.com/en-GB/Contact#en-gb

    PS .. good luck !

    the exception code your getting is an access violation error and yes they can be hard to troubleshoot

    use google as there are many ways you can troubleshoot your error see more here use google and type in
    Exception code: 0xc0000005


    see also https://social.technet.microsoft.com...itproappcompat

    see also https://compfreakstars.blogspot.com/...-day-many.html

    this is a common error and may be due to many things ....

    you can try also to run the Win 10 compatibility troubleshooter by right clicking on the games . exe file .. or set it to run in a win 7 mode and see if that helps

    but i'm betting you have either a bad uplay install or corrupt MS files installed and yes that error can happen alot with games

    I have just done all of what has been suggested, and I get the same error in Event Viewer and the application fails just after it is launched (I don't even get to the black screen). I believe I have to re-install my system because I have also been experiencing slow shutdowns and other windows quirks.

    Thanks for the help anyways.

    damn man that sucks
    you could avoid a reinstall

    try SF C scan now

    details are here to rule out bad system files

    might be faster then a reinstall especially with your Threadripper

    Found a solution. You have to turn on legacy mode in Ryzen Master, which disables one of the dies.

    I guess that Far cry 4 doesn't like all those threads.
