Method 1: You need to Clear your Drive (100%) & Reinstall Your Game. To more Safely, you can Move this Game to a 100% Clear New Drive ( D: / E: / F: etc) , which means Gears 5 this Game only.

Otherwise, you’ll keeping appearing this Problem.

It happens mostly due to Files Corrupted that “CMD/ scannow/” cannot help your Problem.

I mean the Commend in CMD knows there’re Corrupted Files in Gears 5, but they can’t FIX it.

Problem Solved.

PC Problem in Gears 5 can be easily Solved by System Restoring your Computer for 100% Clear & using the New Drive for Gaming only, but it’s very a Wasted of Time to Do This.

@TC_Sera The Game in Gears 5 is just Too Hard to Fix the Related Application Problem or Huge Error by players themselves. It should be reported to the Bugfix/Error/Programming Team by giving some Convenient Ways to Fix the PC Main Problem / Error. For example, the Losing Files in Gears 5 or the Lastest Gears5.exe to be Downloaded by players themselves in Gears of War Website.

@GhostofDelta2 The Thread is solved. Doing my solution is 100% sure for the Game that can be able to play Again.

Generally that sounds as if you are running very low on RAM.
But it seems Imstifu got you covered :wink:

i9 9900

32Gb ram

2x 1 tb ssds 2x 4tb HDD

there is no memory issue on my end I have more than enough to run the game…

this has been happening for years since gears 4

I just reformatted my pc and installed the game… I have 2 games installed on my pc and nothing else… just windows 10

there has to be another solution besides having to jump looks like stifu posted… that’s just crazy

Honestly ? At that point it gets complicated.
It’s probably a weird combination of hardware working together but that is bugtracking, people are paid for finding such things generally.
So yeah sorry man.
Though again if it happens for years there is probably something odd with your system.

I don’t know what exact Gears5.exe & Windows System & Steam/Microsoft happening together that you aren’t Able to Fix by yourself.

I had Application Error myself after Op 7 because I just copied the Files from C:/ to D:/, and it’s Broken after I moved it, so it confused me a lot.

So, System Restoring & Install Game from a New Completely Drive is the Only Way I guess that can solve the Problem.

Probably the Windows System & Gears5 themselves are affecting each other. I don’t know, but Gears 5 is the only Game I played by far the Most Bugged Game.

Generally the error message is non descript, there is a virtual function being called that the system can’t find the actual function for.
That usually means that it is not loaded into memory which usually speaks for a memory issue.
It’s an error issue that is not handled why you see that message box, but the actual reason can be 4242424 things

When you know Application Related Error in Gears 5, even the Technical Team have No Method showing Error Code on how to solve it.
