Hi k
Your Amazon download is fine for playing SH5.
Uplay controls the security of the game to make sure you are using a valid version.

If you are referring to your driver not meeting the installation requirement this will be because the installation is looking at the drivers that were available when the game was originally launched so you can ignore that.

You need to check out the following.

Post #5 Update SH5 From v1.0.5.0 To v1.2.0 Immediately After Installing

Post #74 Run Both SH5.exe And Ubisoft Game Launcher Application's As Administrator's

Post #239 Changing The Nvidia GPU Settings

Also this.
Highly Recommended SH5 > The Wolves Of Steel Mega Mod > Includes > Optional KSDCommander And Working Enigma M4 Machine > Sub Flags

How do u run ur sh5?
You can launch the game from the SH5.exe.
You can have the SH5.exe icon in your task bar for easy access.
You can also launch the game from the Ubisoft game launcher in C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\
1st game launcher icon (application).
If KSDCommander is being used then you run your game from there.

Default Dumped Steam

Hi,

I too decided to go the Amazon Digital down load (UPlay) route, it was £4, a cheap experiment (and steam are good at reimbursing).

The install went fine and I applied the TWoS Mod and then TDW_GenericPatcher_v_1_0_168_0. All seems OK except for missing fonts. I've attached screenshots.




(I fear your thread may have been hijacked, let me know if it's an issue and I'll create my own thread.)

Hi CM
This looks like a classic Direct X problem.
You can download the game version here.
DirectX 9.0C

Hi k
Good question!
If you have bought your download from Amazon they will also have given you an installation key that you will need.
When the game installs it connects to Uplay you will need to set up an account.
Login
Email address
Password
Installation key number.
Important that you do not lose these details.

Hi k
The first thing to do now is to uninstall from the control panel SH5 and the Ubisoft game launcher.
Post #70 How To Use The Free Registry Cleaner 'Ccleaner' > Includes Download Link
Use the free Registry cleaner and then re-boot your system.
I install from a dvd, you are installing from a download which should not be a problem as many do this.
You should see an option to start the download from your seller, this may take some time depending on your system and routers capability.
towards the end of the installation you will see an error regarding your gpu card which can be ignored, just press the prompt key to continue.
Once the download has completed exit any open screens.
Follow this tutorial.

When the update is completed it will take you to the Uplay login screen so you can enter the necessary details.

Hi k
Can you explain exactly what you are doing, and where you are doing it from (source)
I remember buying the SH5 download from Ubisoft many years ago when the my internet connection was 512mb without any problems, just took a long time.

sry, i was away for a few days. Ok, 1rst i download the files just by clicking on the amazon icon and after it downloads files i run the game upgrade to patch. after patch i run run ubisoft game launcher and watch it download its files and upgrade. when i go into uplay to play game it does an additional 6 file download i.e VC++dist, direct X etc. after that the game goes to error message. that is it. I even tried to let uplay download game files with same ending results

Hi k
The Uplay error message is quite a common problem if it is the Windows one.
The way to get around the problem is to download a new game launcher.

to be clear, the error message i get is "silent hunter V has stopped working" which means i can't launch game. i do not find a link to download new game launcher, the post i link on only is for uplay download. Is that what you wanted me to do?

Hi k
The error message you mention is one of the ones you can get.
I have left instructions on your other post.
This will fix the problem you have.
