When launching Splinter Cell: Blacklist through Uplay PC, the Autopatcher crashes during the patch installation or at the end of the patch installation.

Is there a direct link where I can get the latest patch?

If you prefer to manually download your updates or are encountering a technical issue with the Uplay auto-patcher, you can find the relevant download links below:

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist Patch v1.01

NOTE: You must first have Splinter Cell: Blacklist installed on your PC BEFORE installing the patch.

1. Download the the v1.01 patch for Splinter Cell: Blacklist here:

http://static3.cdn.ubi.com/splinter_cell_blacklist/Splinter_Cell_Blacklist_v1.01.exe (~1.7 GB)

2. Save the file to your computer (by default, Windows generally saves files to the Downloads folder).
3. Open the file named: Splinter_Cell_Blacklist_v1.01.exe. Follow the instructions on the screen.
4. After the patch has been installed, launch Uplay and start Splinter Cell: Blacklist as normal.

Thanks for the info. But how is anyone getting a crash with Uplay when the game isn't even released yet?

Well this is just the launch patch that steam must download automatically but something is wrong with the uplay autopatcher. I guess these are all bugs they caught/fixed after a point in time where it couldn't be sent with the main game download. Once we are actually able to download the game on uplay we need to download and run that exe

The game doesn't launch after the patch. Great stuff indeed!

EDIT: Changing "WindowStyleFinal=1" to "WIndowStyleFinal=2" found in videosettings.ini under "C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Ubisoft\Blacklist\" did the trick.
