Hey there @Casan0ba and @UnNounoursBleu_, thank you both for taking the time to get in touch. I'm sorry to see that several files have been flagged by your Anti-virus software. I want to assure you that there is no malware or any viruses contained within any of our PC games through the Ubisoft Connect client. It's likely that these files have been incorrectly flagged, this can be quite a common occurrence for games depending on the software you've installed.Please double check that you have downloaded this game through our official Ubisoft Connect launcher, you can find it here: ( ).If you have any further questions or you experience any other issues, please do not hesitate to reach back out.
When you accept the invitation, the EA app download process will begin. Origin will be uninstalled automatically - this ensures you will not experience any conflicts or errors related to having both clients installed on your PC simultaneously. Once you complete the update process, your games and content will be ready for play.
@MechaG2 after looking up a few keywords related to this case, I found there is the option of addressing the problem with the missing function \"CreateDXGIFactory2\" by providing a replacement for dxgi.dll that is both compatible with Windows 10 and Windows 7. Renoise happens to have one such thing, it is a tool for people to add their own shaders into their games without interfering with anything else, but with no shaders enabled it seems to work well as a bridge between the Windows 8+ DirectX functions and the copy of DirectX 11 used in Windows 7. I tried it in For Honor and it successfully restored the overlay, with no need of touching anything in the Ubisoft launcher itself, which is pretty nice.I haven't tried it with Ubisoft Connect just yet tho, so far I'm using the previous workaround of sticking to one version of the launcher until it expires, but the process should be the same for both:
I think I will try this once my current version of the launcher kicks the bucket. It might be my only hope, since I really doubt Ubisoft will care too much about this. I swear software development has become all about convenience in recent times, and nothing about making something good and durable anymore. I mean, you folks could at least have put a notice in the launcher like, a month before the update, warning us that the incoming versions would not support DirectX 11 on Windows 7. It's not that hard to add such a thing.Moreover, one would expect the launcher to be last thing that moves forward in minimum requirements, only once all (ongoing) games have done it. Anyways, I hope my suggestion works for those who reinstalled Ubisoft Connect or are still bothered by the broken overlay problem in Windows 7.
I also have this error popping up when I try starting Rainbow Six Siege.Ubisoft is blaming me for not having TLS 1.2 for the Overlay not working in-game. I checked and I installed the TLS 1.2 update since 2016. Ubi said that I need to update to Windows 10 to "fix" the overlay issue for the TLS thing... it's clearly something wrong that their new launcher does. I am also on Windows 7 (Ultimate) x64. Hopefully they find the problem and work on it. Their whole servers seem messed up.Another thing I see (since I have the game on Steam) is that Steam cannot close the game anymore on its own and requires manually shutting down the RainbowSix.exe or clicking on the Stop button in Steam:I hope this gets fixed soon as I have paid for their games, spent thousands of hours on them, and we deserve better service!
I closed my case with Ubisoft Support because there was no point keeping it open.In the end I explained to them that the problem is not with any of the games on their launcher but instead it's a problem with the last update of the launcher basically crippling Win7 users, which there are still plenty of. I even linked them to this topic. I also asked them to pass the issue over to the UC devs so they could come up with a fix.The last support message was that they would pass this along.To be honest, I'm not holding my breath that they will fix it. Also keep in mind that I am a pessimist and I sort of kind of understand the mind set of developers.Kind of off topic:The only reason I haven't gone to Win10 is that I have yet to see a need to force myself to. It also doesn't help that just about every month M$ puts out updates there is one issue or another, the main one seems to be screw up audio settings for streamers and content creators and I didn't want to have to deal with any of that. I have a new issue with Win10 now that I won't get into because in the end it's mostly a personal issue but still darn (trying to keep it clean) annoying and cannot find a fix.
If you are having trouble uninstalling the Ubisoft game launcher from your PC, the good news is that you can easily remove it with the help of a third-party uninstaller. Although you can perform the uninstall process manually, it will not remove all the components of the game launcher.
GameHub is a game launcher that can use different compatibility layers like Wine/Proton, DOSBox and other tools. It can hook into Steam, GOG and other sources. It is written in Vala and you can read more about it here.
NOTE: If you run two installer scripts for games from the same launcher application (e.g. Battle.net, uPlay, EA Origin, etc.) Lutris will install multiple copies of that launcher in separate folders inside the virtual C:\ drive. This shouldn't prevent the games from being installed, just be mindful of hard drive space, and pay attention to where Lutris is installing game files. Overwatch could end up in the same general area as World of Warcraft, or in two separate folders, each with their own Battle.net install. This means that clicking on Overwatch, or World of Warcraft will both launch Battle.net but one may show Overwatch as installed, and the other may show only WoW as installed, or vice-versa.
Legendary is an open-source game launcher that can download and install games from the Epic Games platform on Linux, macOS, and Windows.Its name as a tongue-in-cheek play on tiers of item rarity in many MMORPGs.
Tip: most games will run fine offline (--offline), and thus won't require launching through legendary for online authentication.You can run legendary launch --offline --dry-run to get a command line that will launch the game with all parameters that would be used by the Epic Launcher.These can then be entered into any other game launcher (e.g. Lutris/Steam) if the game requires them. 2b1af7f3a8
