Games for windows LIVE won't install

Recommended Posts

I'll run you though everything that happened:

First off, I am a complete GTA IV n00b and I have waited months to get this game. I finally get for XP and I download Windows Service Pack 3 successfully. Now, when I load Rockstar Games Social Club (To play GTA IV for the first time ever :o) It loads fine, but just before the game started, it told me to upadate my Games for wondows Live.

I went to the Rockstar Games site. Downloaded the installer....

Now, when I click install...it loads the installing thing. I pressed "Run" and when I press "Next" to finally update, it comes up straight away with a message saying: "An error occured while installing XLiveRedist.msi, The windows service installer could not be accessed" :(

Shall I try re-installing the whole game? now that I have Service Pack 3? Because I have come accross 3 errors on my GTA IV launching....now this has stopped me from playing.

Any help would be appricated so much! Thanks!

~ Will

Ok, Thank you.

EDIT: Damn! It comes up with the same message as before. :( also it says "This can occur if your running windows in safe mode or if the windows installer is not correctly installed."

is there a way to find out if my PC is on safe mode? I am positive it isn't.

It'll say in all 4 corners of your desktop "Safe Mode" if you are.

Sounds like your SP3 install might have gone wrong. Try downloading the upgrade again and reinstall. Could also try reinstalling the game first if you haven't done already.

ok thanks. I might try re-installing like you said. :)

If that doesn't work, I will re-install SP3, though I am confident it went well. I'll these and get back to you.

Thanks again.
