Same thing happened to me I just got off and the CD key Uplay I get false and my account has been suspended. When I start the game from Steam gives me the error of "Autopatch system stopped working" If I find a solution I'll tell you and you tell me how you've done to you.

apparently it has something to do with uplay by ubisoft.
Try validating the files and it will detect 50 files are missing.
I don't know what to do after that ;(

How do I even enter the CD key at Uplay? God this pathetic joke of a platform makes me sick!
I bought FC3: Blood Dragon on steam, dowloaded it, installed it but this is where it ends. Can't start it via steam, can't find some kind of feature to register the game in uplay.
Could somebody please enlighten me?

Hmm I started the game and it just asked me for the key ... simple, but I run the version of Uplay from the site of Ubisoft.

OK so i got it to work lastnight. Go to your library, right click on your game, properties, local files, Verify integrity of game cache. after done it told me i was misssing game files and steam will find them for me. Steam launched an update and installed all the missing files. Next i launched the game and put in my steam cd key agian but this time all caps and Dashes. Then i was in. I hope this works for you guys as it did for me.

Ubisoft is really ready to go back in the Greenlight queue for consistent bad service.

Very good at all, I just found the solution and following the steps it solves everything. You have to follow every step that you put and you can play.


1. Navigate to the FC3 folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Far Cry 3\bin\

2. Locate FarCry3.exe
a. Right Click and select properties
b. In the compatibility tab select the option to run as admin

3. Follow steps a & b for Farcry3_d3d11.exe
4. Create a shortcut on your desktop for whichever version you want to use.
5. Right click on the shortcut and select Properties.
6. Set the Target to:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Far Cry 3\bin\farcry3_d3d11.exe" "-uplay_steam_mode"

(Remember to include the quotation marks and change C to which ever drive the game is installed to.)

7. Apply changes and launch the game from the icon.

This should force the game to launch up in the Steam version of Uplay, without launching Steam or requesting the FC3UpdaterSteam.exe to launch.

I hope you work, greetings to all.
