A symptom is the following error: There was a problem starting your game. Make sure you have no other games running that use the Ubisoft Game Launcher

  1. Navigate to the [Game] folder: C:Program Files (x86)Steamsteamappscommon[Game]
  2. Locate [Game].exe
  3. Right Click and select properties
  4. In the compatibility tab select the option to run as admin
  5. Follow steps a & b for [Game]_d3d11.exe (if applicable)
  6. Create a shortcut on your desktop for the game’s .exe file.
  7. Right click on the shortcut and select Properties.
  8. Set the Target to: “C:Program Files (x86)Steamsteamappscommon[Game][Game].exe” “-uplay_steam_mode” (Remember to include the quotation marks and change “C:” to which ever drive the game is installed to.)
  9. Apply changes and launch the game from the icon.

This should force the game to launch up in the Steam version of Uplay.
