To get mine up and running I had to mess with System 32 a bit as other methods didn't seem to work for my system.

I would not advice you to do the same because it involved taking ownership of System32, and manually modifying the registry.
The game is not worth it really..

It certainly isn't. And it definitely shouldn't require such a drastic measure.

Anyway my fix I linked to works. Itís quite simple and doesnít require any Windows modifications, hacks, compatibility modes, or any other crazy stuff. All you need to do is download an older version of Games For Windows live and follow the game install instructions I posted.

That said, can't (and won't) say it'll work on pirated or hacked copies of the game. My game is an official store bought physical copy. In short, if the game isn't working with the fix I posted, you might have to question the legitimacy of the game.

Good luck.
