    Hello Microsoft, I own planty of GfW Games not played for some time or even never played so far. When I now installed Fable III again after a HDD-crash it did not start. When I try install GfW client manually it always states that there is a network problem and no connection. So I know that my internet connection is working well. So please give info how to get connected again to old GfW plattform or alternative way to activate and play old GfW games today under Windows 10. Last GfW Game played was 007 Ein Quantum Trost which was functional in 2020.

    Thanks in advance

    Stefan V.

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I will surely help you with this issue.

    This bug check KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE indicates that the kernel has detected the corruption of a critical data structure.

    GFW Gears of War Live Crashing

    Original title: GFW Live Crashing

    I've been using Games for Windows LIVE ever since Gears of War for PC was released. I installed it on my computers years ago, and it has worked perfectly fine since. And on every OS as well, no issues.

    Present day, I have a brand new laptop, and uninstalled all the bloatware it came with. I want to play some Gears of War again because, ****, I love the game.

    So I download GFW Live installer. It installs, leaves a shortcut on my desktop, and I save the installer to my backups folder.

    I run the program and it gives me the login screen. I type my credentials, and click "sign in."

    It immediately freezes itself, then crashes, and windows starts looking for a solution to the problem, blah blah blah.

    It has full permissions, runs as admin, and is allowed through my firewall, and still refuses to work properly.

    I'm using a Windows 10 machine, although all my other computers are running the same OS with a nearly identical setup as far as software goes, and they all run GFW Live just fine. I know it's an old, outdated platform, but there's no other way I can download
    and install Gears, that I'm aware of.

    Google and other places have been utterly useless in helping me.
