The first option would be to uninstall and re-install the game if you have not done so already. This will, more often than not, sort out the problem as this kind of error could be related to corrupt installation files. Also run a full anti virus scan using good software such as Kaspersky internet security 2010, then try reinstalling your game.

Let me know if you still have problems after following the above steps.
Best wishes,

Windows says the game has stopped working - cannot launch. System requirements are OK - install was successful.

Note the system requirements are Windows XP or Vista. If you're using Windows Vista, and it's 64 bit, you'll encounter more problems running some programs that can only run on the 32 bit version.

Also note that if you got this as a pirated copy, Ubisoft implemented an anti-piracy measure that forces the game to error and close out, or otherwise cause unpredictable crashes.

I continualy get error msg to check printer cartridge, when new ones are installed same msg repeated.

I just replaced my black ink cartridge on the same printer and I'm encountering the same problem: a message that states "the black cartridge is not compatible with this printer". Well, that's not true. It is compatible. As a matter of fact, I got my printer (with new cartridge installed) to print a page once. But, now its giving me problems again and I can't get it to work. Help!
