Got the key, Windows Live won't accept it?
I got my key, but Windows Live still says 'key is not valid' so I can't save or anything. Anyone else having this issue? or anyone found a fix?

UPDATE: It was accepted eventually but thanks everyone. I geuss it just took a while for new key gens to be available

Many Users are having the same problem as you.

Here's some possible work-arounds to maybe fix it (but unfortunately the steps to try outlined there still doesn't work for everyone);

Hey guys, I got both keys for GTA IV and Episodes for liberty city. Problem is that game crashes everytime in the opening scene. EfLC too. Game warns me that I am signed as PROFILE and that I should sign in with my games for windows live ID.

Therefore, I linked my live account with social club account so I really dont have a clue what is wrong with the game.
What should I do?

Of course, I followed instructions in the link LoneWolfDon provided but I still get same answer - Please enter a valid code.

Also, on the episodes of liberty city I get message while I am trying to redeem - There is a problem with the offer associated with this code.

Each and every time this game goes on sale, this exact same issue happens.

great job devs / publisher on making ppl wait a week or 3 before they can play a game they payed for, stick it to the PC gamers they deserve nothing less, right?

Some big hoops to jump through; especially as it used to work before.
