Default Please help with starting SH5 with uplay.

I have this weird problem. After I installed uplay everything seemed fine until I wanted to start SH5 the second time the SH5 intro screen (the skipper looking at periscope) comes up it shows loading (the ring rotates at the bottom) but thats it. After reinstalling uplay it loads again fine for the first time but any further attempt to play fails.
Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Did you update the game to v.1.2.0?

Do you run the sh5.exe and the ubisoft game launcher with administrator rights?

I downloaded the latest build from ubisoft it is 1.2 and yes I run both sh5 and ubi as administrator. My game was OK until I had to reinstall my system (win 10) since that it fails to load.

Hi gezahu
The download will not be v1.2.0 but v1.0.5.0
It only becomes v1.2 after you use the updater.

There are a number of windows problems around at the moment due to updates by Microsoft.
