Assassin's Creed Revelation The Lost Archive DLC

Installation problem - The Lost Archive DLC - Assassins Creed Revelation

By Berlyn posted 19th Jun 2014

Hey everybody,

I just bought The Lost Archive DLC for Assassins Creed Revelations, but I wont get it installed.
I have AC Revelations installed and I can enter the code for the DLC in the main game menu. The codes accepted.
But when I try to install the DLC, I always get an error message.
In German it says: Versionsnummer kann nicht festgestellt werden! Installation wird abgebrochen. - something like: version number cant be detected - installation will be aborted.

Didnt find a solution yet - any clues?
Thanks in advance for your help!

I finally found a solution on Steam forums, that worked fine:
as some people here already noticed, installing a non-Steam version of the Lost Archive DLC with a Steam version of Assassins Creed Revelations results in the error message Could not retrieve version number! Installation will be aborted.
Fortunately this can be resolved by adding/changing some values in the Windows registry. First make sure you have started Assassins Creed Revelations at least once. Then save the following text in a text file, rename its file extension to .reg and execute it (confirm with yes).

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeUbisoftAssassins Creed RevelationsGameUpdate]


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREUbisoftAssassins Creed RevelationsGameUpdate]

Once it has been imported to the registry, your Lost Archive installer should work just normal with the Steam version of AC:R. Remember you still have to enter the DLCs key inside the game menu to access the new content.

I hope I could help someone with this :)
