Gears of War: WINDOWS 7 run fail

hi everyone
got some problems with starting GoW on my machine... that is it doesnt run at all

i think it's all about Windows 7 64bit and GoW uncompability, seems that the game is 'too old' for windows 7

instalation gone corectly, but when i try to run the game, following message appears:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Gears of War\Binaries\wargame-g4wlive.exe: You cannot run the game with modified executable code. Please reinstall the game."
Reinstalled the game and nothing changed. I visited dozens of forums, GoW official website and nothing helped! does it run on Windows 7 at all??!

please help if anyone found a solution

Try installing it in Vista/XP compatibility mode.

I'm affraid that GoW doesn't provide such an option... or maybe should do it somehow special??

moreover, I tried this solution: Gears of War: Error "You cannot run the game with modified executable code" I did as they said, but the patch installer says "old file not found. however, a file of the same name was found. no update done since file contents do not match."

got no idea what else to do...

When you put in the disk, click explore instead of double clicking. Manually find the installer file, then right click on it and go to properties. Find the Compatibility tab, and choose Vista or XP.

I'm sorry Lordbob75, but it seems that this is not a solution... installing and trying to run the game in XP/Vista compatibility didn't change the damn thing

thanks a lot anyway for support

Did you follow the exact instructions including all folders and not starting the game along with getting the patch?

I would tried those two solutions :
- Disable UAC and try again
- Right click shortcut, then, run as admin.
