Far Cry 3 Updater: Failed to start game. Cannot find essential information in the registry.
Reinstalled about three times, verified cache, tried every fix, including the ones in this link: http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/739489-PC-Win7-8-vista-Solutions-gt-Far-Cry3-Has-Stopped-Responding.....filled out steam tickets....this is really weird because I have been playing this for 3 days with ZERO problems then all of sudden this afternoon after not playing turning off my PC and not playing for a few hours it stopped working altogether. PLEASE help.

Did you try Solution 6? And did you use CCleaner?
Also was the game running when you turned off your PC?

Try this: Reinstall Uplay from solution 6.

I just did and I did the CCleaner. I just pressed play on Far Cry 3 and am waiting for the Auto Patcher again....

I was going to suggest that next. :P Also try and delete the FC3 Game files from your steam then download it again from scratch to see if that works. :)

Oh and your Welcome! :)

yeah i just did a complete regedit clean and ccleaner so not a trace of uplay or far cry 3 remains so hopefully that'll do the trick
