Microsoft Games for Windows - LIVE


About This File

Official installation files for Microsoft Games for Windows - LIVE. This package contains the last version of the Marketplace client (3.5.67.0) and the last version of the Redistributable (3.5.95.0).

 

Uninstall the Microsoft Games for Windows Marketplace client and the Microsoft Games for Windows - LIVE Redistributable (if either is installed), then extract all files and run gfwlivesetup.exe. After the installation is finished just launch a GFWL title and the in-game overlay and usual sign-in prompt will appear in the game. The first sign-in for a game tend to take quite some time and the process might seem to be stuck for 5-10 minutes before completion.

Please note that the included Marketplace client is no longer functioning as of 2022. 

 

This package contains the following official downloads packaged together for convenience:

Dude you REALLY saved my life, can't thank you enough. I just downloaded the zip file on my pc, downloaded the wizard, and the game runned on the first attempt. I've had this issue for the longest and now I can finally play. Thanks.

I just registered to thank you. This is a life-saver. Worked like a charm. Fallout 3 instantly started on max stats and everything fine.

Doesn't work as of August 2022. Microsoft ditched this app completely in favor of the Xbox app. It's utterly useless in the latest versions of Windows 10 Pro.

Can you elaborate what you mean? I just tried the install and GFWL in a game and confirmed it worked fine.

I did notice that the Marketplace client is fully dead nowadays, though it can be ignored since it haven't really worked the last few years anyway (you could sign in to the client but couldn't actually download anything through it).

I've updated both the file description here and the wiki article to clarify that point, as well as how the first login to a game can take 5-10 minutes before it completes.

Trying to run the Client itself is useless, as the Marketplace is no longer online. You must just install it, and then run your game. It should log in correctly. Both vanilla SF4 and SFxTK are working fine here.

Apologies, nevermind, I had the game installed and just had to uninstall/reinstall the game and reinstall the client prior to playing, through the setup process I learned the button to press is "Home", thanks again for your assistance ! 😄

please help 

I can't recreate this issue, sadly, as the gfwlivesetup installer works just fine for me.

That said, all that the gfwlivesetup installer technically does is run the separate installers one by one. You can install the package by just doing that manually as well, so run xliveredistgfwlclient, and I think wllogin_64 manually.

Note that the GFWL Marketplace client does not actually work nowadays, so even though it's being installed it's otherwise useless.
