Fable III - DLC Activation (Investigation Ongoing)
There are numerous reports that users who purchased Fable III DLC recently may have issue activating the content. We are currently investigating the issue and will update this announcement when there is additional information.

If you have not activated codes yet, please make sure to only activate using the in-game panel. (Hit the "Home" key to bring up the menu, click on your username, then select redeem code). Do not redeem on xbox.com at this time. You may need to follow the steps below if it does not activate.

The first troubleshooting step will be to remove and reinstall the GFWL marketplace client. You can uninstall it through the control panel and reinstall it by visiting Xbox.com
(The direct US link for english is available here [www.xbox.com] ):

Issues with the base game CD key activation should be resolved at this time. For more information see this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/105400/discussions/0/648812916995038529/

Same here - I redeemed via Xbox.com and can not see any of my DLCs either in game or on my account.

try uninstalling games for windows live then downloading a new installer and reinstalling. that worked for me, and my issue about the dlc seems to have resolved itself after i downloaded a bunch of other stuff.
Although im not sure if I have all the dlc or not.

strange, i got a new client and it did progress the activation of the dlc to the point where it's accepted the activation codes and the downloads are in my active downloads (previously it wouldn't even accept the codes), but they don't actually download (well, traitors keep is at 5.49kb but won't go any further) and when i go back into the game there's a pop up about not being able to download.

I tried uninstallign Games for Windows Live, downloading the new installer and reinstalling but it's not working for me. Before trying that, I had tried claiming my DLC using the in-game directions and, when that gave me an error when I tried to download, I went and claimed them directly from the website. They don't show up for me to download and trying to put the keys in in-game gets invalid key since they've already been claimed on the website.

Removing and re-downloading the GFWL Marketplace allowed me to activate and download the DLC.

I used to have this game for xbox 360 could the problem be caused by having the 360 dlc on my account then buying pc dlc for the same account? Only fallout 3 dlc is showing up for my downloads after reinstalling GFWL three times. The codes say invalid when I put them in now.

I've updated the main post to reflect this. From what I've been hearing from several other folks internally, the client available for download is a little bit different to accommodate the changes to the PC marketplace from this past August. Unfortunately it does require a manual download though. Please continue to let me know if it resolves the issue for you, the investigation from our teams internally reports that the keys recently generated should work and are tied to the right items.

I have removed the 2 GFWL programs and reinstalled them with a newer version from the xbox.com site 2 times. But i still cant get my dlc. Since i activated my codes on the xbox.com website i cant reenter them in the game or in the in game marketplace window either. And my dlc is nowhere to be found either in game or in the marketplace. So unfortunately this did not work for me. I hope you can find some other solution that will work for me.

PS:It might have something to do that i also have fable 3 without dlc on my xbox 360. Which i havent used in a long time. So perhaps xbox.com registered the keys as xbox keys instead of pc ones. But i want my dlc on the pc :(
