Hmm, the download link on Microsoft's site always redirects me to Silverlight V1 from 2008 …
Current version is V5 I think.

If you are experiencing similar issues, you could try this mirror in germany:

I really like this piece of software.
Mainly using it at work for testing and at home for gaming.
Now with the ability to even run Mountain Lion in a VM on my MacPro (that's not "capable" of natively running it) I could stop starting it as a mackintosh and return to Lion as my main OS. If I need ML for an app I can just start up the ML VM. Big plus. Drawback: OSX graphics performance simply sucks, it feels as there is no OpenGL acceleration available in the OSX VM even with the Parallels Tools installed.

Fast Windows virtualization
Decent graphics performance for DirectX
Recent versions provide a good Linux support (for earlier versions I preferred VMWare Fusion)
Mac integration makes it fun to work with multiple OSes at a time (shared clipboard, vm volumes as drives on a mac)
MacOS in a VM Support (it even supports Mountain Lion's Messages.app, which won't work when booting my MacPro into ML using chameleon)

OSX's graphics performance in a VM is bad.
Sometimes the mouse speed goes nuts when a Windows game enters fullscreen - either approaching light speed or slowing down to 1 pixel per meter

It's only giving me a black screen upon launch. No way to add text, images or audio, none of the buttons is working except publish which then will result in an endlessly running export.
Any Ideas?

[Version 1.0]

It's not working.
First launch after install: Kernel Panic
Next 5 launches the game started but I had to switch back to the desktop to enable 2 processes for unlimited internet traffic, Game Launcher and Assassins Creed 2.
Hitting the ^ key while the Ubisoft logo animation is playing will unexpectedly quit the game.
Keystrokes are not recognized.
Launch #6: Kernel Panic

I was unable to play the game, because the rare times it didn't crash (including crashing my whole system) it didn't recognize any keypressed except the one on the logo animation that crashed the game.

MacPro 1,1
2x2,66 GHz, 5 GB
ATI Radeon HD 4870

Looks like this is my first and last Ubisoft game. Any way to get my money back because the product is not working at all?

In addition to my first post: pressing the ^ key will crash the game, no matter when. Logo, title, ingame. Btw. it's a german keyboard layout.

Hi there, first of all: great tool.
But it's got some problems with Left4Dead2 (hl2engine).
From time to time it l4d2 will get a really wired input lag/sticking keys bug when HyperDock is active.
Apart from that: I really like this tool.

Still not working on my MacPro with HD4870.

Console outputs:
Build Log for Device[0]:
then after 15 seconds or so:
setupComputeDevices() failed: -7
and then I'll have to force quit the app.

Hope the X.6.1 update will fix the ati drivers.

Schöne Grüße aus Bonn ;)
[Version V 1.0]

MikeMyDay had trouble on 01 May 2005
doesn't work in tiger, anymore.
That's really sad, because I love this app...
Please build a tiger compatible version.

Works as long, as no feed is added (deleting the prefs removes the feeds and renders the app "useable")
I can change all of the prefs without any problem, but when even one feed is added, the app freezes. There is some network traffic, but the gui doesnt respond anymore.

Anyway: Good work!
