Resident Evil 5 not working in Windows 8
I installed Resident Evil 5 yesterday but when I click the button for the DX 10 the game wont start loading. Nothing happens. I never had any problems playing Resident Evil 5 in Windows 7. Can anyone confirm incompatibility issues with Windows 8.

Hi there!

I had this issue today when I tried to re-install Resident Evil 5 on my new Windows 8 installation =)

I was able to solve it by going here:
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/LIVE/PC/DownloadClient

And downloading the newest version of the Games for Windows Live program =D

Once I did that, it worked perfectly fine again =) Apparently the version included with RE5 and other games is incompatible with Windows 8 =/

At least it is easy to fix though =)

Thanks ANDREWS89 - that solved my load issue. Yet another reason to despise GFW.

To those to whom it still does not work:
Go to the GFWL Client.exe (found in programfilesx 86\Games for Windows - LIVE), properties, change compatibility mode to windows 7. Run the client as adminstrator, and it should work.
