This is what has it working for me:
- Set Ubisoft Connect to run as administrator. (Right click shortcut, properties, compatibility tab)
- Set both ACValhalla.exe and ACValhalla_Plus.exe to run as administrator.
- Added entire Ubisoft folder to exceptions in anti-malware.
- Separately added Assassins' Creed Valhalla folder to exceptions in anti-malware.
I no longer have to shut down protection.
FWIW my folders are all on C:.
Have made exceptions in protection software for it - no luck
Exceptions don't work for me. I have to shut protection down.
With protection on I don't get any alerts, just splash screen, black screen, back to desktop.
With protection shut down the game starts and runs fine.
I had the same problem with Watch Dogs Legion. To get it to run I have to shut down protection in my anti-virus. Both games start and run fine with protection shut down, but never get past the splash screen with it active.
FWIW I use Emsisoft Anti-Malware. Right click it in system tray, select "Shut down protection", enter 6 digit code (PITA!) and the game runs fine.
