[Solved] Ubisoft Uplay is replaced by Ubisoft Connect
Ubisoft replaced uPlay by Ubisoft Connect.
The entry in the Windows 10 Start menu is called Ubisoft Connect.
So please mark uPlay as EOL.
Here the version info from the EXE:
File name and path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\UbisoftConnect.exe Product Name: Ubisoft Connect Internal Name: Ubisoft Connect Original Filename: UbisoftConnect.exe File Description: Ubisoft Connect Company: Ubisoft Legal Copyright: (c) Ubisoft Legal Trademarks: Comments: File Version String: 1.0 File Version: 18.104.22.168 Product Version String: 2.0.0 Product Version: 22.214.171.124
Here the icon:
In the application I have no version information.
OK, then I mark this issue as solved.
Oh, the business UI does not show bundles yet, so I did not see that....
@OLLI_S Yes, Connect now bundles Uplay, as Uplay doesn't appear to be a separate product any longer.
@Tom What did you exactly fix?
Currently Connect is detected.
When I read this article then I would say that Ubisoft Connect will replace uPlay:
And this is the reason why Ubisoft Connect is launched when you start uPlay.
@OLLI_S Well, if you find some official information that states that this is now one and the same program, then we will add a bundling specification to this and start treating it as one program.
The strange thing is: when I start uPay, then uplay.exe is starts Ubisoft Connect automatically.
@OLLI_S That's interesting, they changed the product name in the UplayService.exe file, which is the one we detect it on - for some reason we decided to use the service file back in the days, rather than the Uplay.exe - probably due to the lack of useful version information in Uplay.exe.
Please test it, both products should be detected again.
@Tom You are right.
On my PC I still have both applications installed in the start menu:
And also both EXE files are still present.
But uPay is no longer shown although the EXE file is still present:
File name and path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\Uplay.exe Product Name: Uplay Internal Name: Uplay game launcher Original Filename: Uplay.exe File Description: Uplay launcher Company: Ubisoft Legal Copyright: (c) Ubisoft Legal Trademarks: Comments: File Version String: 1.0 File Version: 126.96.36.199 Product Version String: 1.0.1 Product Version: 188.8.131.52
@OLLI_S I did not see anything official about Uplay being EoL, though I can see many that assume this, do you have a link to a blog post or something else that I missed?
I found this:
This, in my opinion, indicates that not all games are moved to Ubisoft Connect, thus it indicates that Uplay is still maintained - but I may be wrong.
Ubisoft Connect is now added.
