    I have not played RE5 in 3 years and I wanted to play it today on my PC (Windows 7, signature) I can't get the game to Run.

    I own it through Steam. Any suggestions on what I can do?

    There are is 2 different things that happen.
    1) when I try to run the game it says "Program has stopped working"
    2) After finding a supposed fix for GFWL I manage to get the game title to open and give me the choice of DirectX9-or10 however 10 just gives me full Black Screen and game crashes. 9 gives me half black window and crash again.

    Would like to know how to get this game running through Steam on my Windows 7 PC.

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    Hey johnb35. I actually got the game running just wanted to share in case another person has the same issue.

    First you need to get these files here
    https://www.dll-files.com/xlive.dll.html

    Copy and Paste them inside the Game Folder for Resident Evil 5 (within the Steam game folder) If it ask you to replace the files say Yes. After you done that you would want to download these files. https://www11.zippyshare.com/v/xzCBJFW3/file.html Found them on a Youtube video and they fixed my problem.

    The first set of files Fixed the problem but made the problem something different, so it was a step forward, then after searching the step forward from the first files, I found the files on the second link on a Youtube video. After doing these 2 easy quick steps I was able to get Resident Evil 5 up and running. Confirmed Windows 7 (Steam).

    So glad it worked.

    Thanks for the help.
    See you around.

    EDIT: This fix is for Games for Windows Live, for some reason it has a conflict with Steam being older and dated software. This solution fixed the issue for me and got the game running.

    So was it a steam issue or an actual game install issue? I just find it quite weird.

    It was partially Steam but Mostly a problem with Game for Windows Live. The Steps I followed above fixed the issue for games for Windows Live. I am going to edit that on my Solution Post.

    Games for Windows Live is a cancer on PC gaming. Glad they killed it but it's a hassle on older games that still have it baked in.
