Cry 3 Updater failed to update

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I ran Far Cry 3 Updater and it says that the executable files do not exist. I have checked for the .exe icon and it is in the folder where the game is installed. Now I don’t know what the problem may be and can anyone help me to fix this ? Please tell me what is the main error with this game ?

Thank you !

This main cause because of this trouble happens when the steam side and the path that’s in use is not correct.

1. Go to the installation directory that contains Far Cry 3. For example, “D:Program Files (x86)SteamsteamappscommonFar Cry 3bin”.

2. Create a shortcut of “farcry3_d3d11.exe”.

3. Right-click on the shortcut >> Properties.

4. In the “target” field, append “-uplay_steam_mode -language=English -steam_mode” after the quotes.

5. Now launch your game with this shortcut.

No more problem will be this time.

The “farcry3_d3d11.exe” file is probably the Direct3D component of the game. If you say the file exists in the game’s installation folder then it is possible that the file is corrupt. Try to uninstall and reinstall the game to fix any corrupt files. Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install it.

Once installed, start Revo Uninstaller then select your Far Cry 3 game among the applications and click “Uninstall”. Follow the normal uninstall process. When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds. This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, close Revo Uninstaller then install Far Cry 3 again then see if it works.

If you have an existing account, you can download Far Cry 3 again on Steam. Far Cry 3 supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.

It requires 2.6 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 or 3 GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ or faster processor, 4 GB RAM, Microsoft DirectX 9.0c-compatible video card with 512 MB video RAM and Shader Model 3.0 support, 15 GB free space, and sound card.
