Troubleshooting functionality issues in Anno 1404

To ensure you get the best performance out of your game please make sure that you have updated the game to the most recent version:
 
Anno 1404 - v1.03.3645
Anno 1404: Venice - v2.01.5010

You can find the version number of your installation of the game on the bottom-left of the main menu.

If your version of the installation doesn't match, you can try to install the patches via the Game Updater (gu.exe or gu_addon.exe) in the installation directory of Anno 1404:

•  Navigate to the Anno 1404 installation folder:
 
Retail: C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Related Designs\Anno 1404
Ubisoft Connect PC: C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\games\Anno 1404

•  Double click gu(gu.exe) or gu_addon(gu_addon.exe) to run the Game Updater.

•  Follow the on screen instructions to complete the installation of the patch.

Please note that the Ubisoft Connect PC and Steam versions should automatically be kept up to date.

Should you have difficulties running the Game Updater, try running the program with administrative rights. Alternatively, you can manually install the missing patches:
 
Anno 1404
Patch 1.1 (Download size 219 MB)
Patch 1.2 (Download size 127 MB)
Patch 1.3 (Download size107 MB)
 
Anno 1404 + Anno 1404: Venice
Patch 2.1 (Download size 159 MB)

Anno 1404 Gold Edition
Patch 3.1 (Download size 228 MB)
 
Please keep in mind that patches should always be installed in ascending order of the version number.

To make sure the installation routine has sufficient rights to make changes to your system, please run the patch files with administrative rights.
