View Full Version : Solution for GFWL Patch issues

03-08-2011, 03:39 PM

I dont know how common this problem is, but I spent a lot of time trying to get the game to work. it was always stuck at the GFWL Update, stating that it could not download it and therefor I would be logged out of Live.

Well, as it turned out (After about 3 hours of searching, uninstalling, reinstalling, patching live, patching windows, et caetera), it helps to NOT run the game as Admin (What I did pre-emptively because the problems are often the other way around -> You need to start as admin for it to work properly). So, if you have the same problem and are running it as admin (Win Vista & Win7 -> Rightclick -> "Run As Admin" or in the compatibility Options), try without the extra previledges and report back.

Hope this has helped someone, and also hope it wasn't already answered elsewhere.
