    after clicking on START GAME do you get the little chrome pop-up window? if not, clear cookies

    try starting the game under Edge browser

    Is it too much to ask for a new updated standalone client that has the new swf file in it. All this having to download a new swf file, then locating the client file and pasting it in there, is not working for me. Why can't BB just post an updated new standalone client that works!!

    the file is made when you attempt to access the game its not hard to find the folder and just past a version into it

    It appears that it is. It suggests to me that there is more that is 'iffy' than just this client.swf file. My money is on something related to the log in and the system for some reason thinking that the person who is trying to download the file is not properly logged in. Frankly it's farcical.

    the fact that it ends up being a player who solves the issue speaks volumes. and when you consider hacking/altering anything to do with the game files was a bannable offence not so long ago, it has indeed all gone a bit 'couldn't make this stuff up'
    HOTFIX!

    Hi Hades....really need your help. When I downloaded the original standalone client before xmas event, I had this same problem. I followed your advice then and downloaded your swf file you posted then. I must've fluked it as it worked and have been going fine since.
    After the recent update, I haven't had the same success. Please tell me where I am going wrong.
    I am using Windows 10 -64 bit, I have tried through Edge and Chrome browsers.
    I logged in through my Ubisoft account
    First I uninstalled the standalone client and downloaded it again. I attempted to start the game to get the necessary folders created.
    Secondly I downloaded the updated swf file from the post with the instruction guide. I renamed it client.swf
    Next I went to the file location where the game is located C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Local\Ubisoft\The Settlers Online\Client
    There was no swf file to replace only Adobe Air, META-INF, and Client.exe.
    I copied the new client.swf file there.
    Next I restarted the comp and logged in.
    Clicked on Play Now and the game brings up the usual standalone client screen and then the same message "Your client could not be updated"
    Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
