angry Assassins creed revelations error - 'Failed to start Ubisoft Game Launcher'[Failed to load configuration. Please restart the game.]

Can anyone help me? everytime i try and start the game, an ubisoft autopatch error will occur and in the technical log will be written

~'Trying to get update information to C:\DOCUME~1\SMARTG~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\ubi25C.tmp.
Found update (Patch, all, all).
Trying to download update file from http://static3.cdn.ubi.com/ac_revela...ns_1.01_eu.exe. Destination: C:\DOCUME~1\SMARTG~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\ubi25D.tmp.exe.

And then i ignored it and click 'Start game' and another error stating 'Failed to start Ubisoft Game Launcher'[Failed to load configuration. Please restart the game.]

I dont have much idea about this but i found a solution while searching for the same on web. At one site i found a guy saying you should Uninstall Ubisoft Launcher, also delete remnant folders completely. Than again download and reinstall ubisoft game launcher.

You can download the same from here.

Yo,

Try this, it worked for me.

1. Go to your "hosts" file (Windows\System32\drivers\etc)
2. Edit/open it up in notepad
3. Delete the follwing line :
<IP address eg.10.0.0.1> static3.cdn.ubi.com
4. Close and save and try running the game again.

Goodluck

@ Masterpuppets

You have to edit your host file.
If you are using windows 7 or XP you will find it in that exact location i mentioned.

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
In the "etc" folder you will find a file called "hosts"
Right click and edit file, then delete that line of text :
<Your IP Address eg.10.0.0.1> static3.cdn.ubi.com
Then save and close the notepad document

And then try again.

@alienmenace

Please disregard my previous post.
It turns out I do have a hosts file in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc, but it's hidden or something.
I tried to copy the hosts file from E: over to C:, and a window popped up informing me that I will have two "hosts" files in C:, but I can't see the one in C:.

any advice?

thx in advance for any help
