Game would crash on start up. Here are the things I tried.

1- Reinstalled game.
2- reinstalled windows,
3- reinstalled Ubiconnect.
4- started the game on clean boot.
5- started the game offline.
6- used DDU and reinstalled NVIDIA drivers.
7- Tried with XMP off and on.
8- Deleted game settings ini


This thing happened to me with Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction too. That game never launched for me since release.

But Siege was working and suddenly started to crash on start up every time I launch it.

Hey @Midz10, thank you for reaching out! I appreciate you taking the time to complete all of that troubleshooting on your own. For good measure, let's make sure all of the steps in this FAQ article are completed. If you're still unable to launch either game after those are done, please open a new support case for this issue with your DxDiag and MSINFO files attached. I'd like to take a closer look and see if anything else stands out that could explain why you're having these launching issues with Siege and Extraction.

@Midz10 Boom! That's just what I needed to hear. 🐙

I was able to look at the system files that you provided and I made sure to review the notes from previous agents that have been assisting you. Several things in your system files stood out that could be contributing to this launching problem. To proceed, I would like to complete some additional troubleshooting to see if we can eliminate a few more possibilities and further narrow down what is causing Siege to not launch. With the previously completed steps in mind, please continue with these:

  • Confirm there are no unnecessary background processes running via your Task Manager
  • As a test please disconnect all unnecessary peripherals, VR equipment, cameras, monitors, etc.
  • Revert the refresh rate on the remaining monitor to its native settings
  • As a test can you try reverting your driver version to 516.59 or earlier (if this doesn't help with the crash, you can update your drivers again)


For good measure, I'd also like to complete a DISM Scan:

  1. Open your Command Prompt by typing cmd in the Start Menu
  2. Run the Command Prompt as administrator
  3. Copy and paste this command: DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
  4. Press Enter and wait until the scan is complete
  5. Once done, restart your PC


After all of those are completed successfully, try launching Siege as an admin directly from the .exe file as an extra measure. If Siege doesn't launch, please create and upload new system files to your support case for me to review further. I'd like to see what has changed with these steps. Please be sure to save your new MSINFO file in the .nfo format as well. I do apologize for the frustration this problem has caused and I'll be happy to assist you further until we get this sorted out!

Hi @Midz10 thanks for the swift update. As one more test could you temporarily disable the Ubisoft Connect overlay?

1. Open the three-line menu in the top left corner of your screen. 
2. Select Settings.
3. Under the General tab, uncheck Enable in-game overlay for supported games.
