Unable to play Star Wars The Old Republic keep getting error code: C7

Every time I try to play SWTOR I get the following message:  

This program encountered an internal error and will exit.
Error code: C7 
Incompatible system. Please verify your system is compatible with this game.

I was able to play it before but am unable to now. How can I fix this?

Recieving the same error.. installed the new Free2Play SWTOR yesterday, played 2 hrs. and now this:

Starting client, 
Logging in,
Pressing Play,
Program Crashes throwing mentioned Error,
And good old Windows 8 gives me a BlueScreen:


looking it up, i found this is the error when:

  1. Something too big was written to RAM
  2. Something was written to the Wrong place
  3. Another Program wrote something there already
In the Post that was posted above, i was able to follow the steps of renaming your "swotr"-folder in the installed directory to swotr-backup. i also ran fixlauncher.exe and am now running launcher in compatibility mode to windows XP SP3, as well as with administrator rights. 

even then it took ages for the launcher to start the program after i pressed play, but now it does not crash anymore

Did this solve your problem?
