    Windows 8 and resident evil operation raccoon city not working


    Ok i know im new here but im really starting to get irritated with windows 8, i have a retail copy of resident evil operation raccoon city and i decided to install it on windows 8 pro, it installs all good and well but when i go to launch the game the screen goes black then back to desktop i have google'd and hunted all over the internet for a fix or help and nothing is working.

    I have tried compatibility mode with all the different versions of windows and running in admin mode but still black screen and no game, ive even tried adding it to GFWL but says invalid code. only thing ive found is something about xlive.dll but cant find any download for it at all....

    if anyone can help me out here i would REALLY be great full to no end.

    My specs if it helps are:

    Windows 8 Pro
    Asus P5Q pro mother board
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4Ghz
    6GB Corsair XMS 2 Gaming ram
    EVGA GTX 560 Ti Superclocked
    2x 1Tb SATA II hard drives
    620w Corsair HX power supply

    This might sound crazy, but I suggest you install Microsoft Flight then try Resident Evil again. Microsoft Flight is a free download on Steam, it's probably on Xbox.com too. Windows 8 doesn't like 99% of GFWL versions (which is quite funny) so every GFWL game just seems to crash unless you have the very latest client. That client is found in Microsoft Flight.

    I hope you read this and that it is the solution. It was for me.
