Dawn of War 2 Games for Windows can´t log in
Hello,

i have an account for games for windows live and made a new one to test if it is a problem of my older account. I can´t log in to games for windows live INGAME. The Client on my computer works and i can log in there and also in the browser.

Can anyone help me ? Games for windows ruins everything..

I red, that RETRIBUTION is not with games for windows live.. so maybe they don´t care of that game any more and steam as well???

http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/02/09/why-relic-dropped-games-for-windows-live-in-dawn-of-war-2-retribution/

they always say " the live service is maybe not available .. lalalaa.. pls contact xbox.com/support or check your firewall"...

but as i said before: i CAN log in on my pc when i start the games for windows live client out of game... ingame it doesn´t work

when i go to "networkinformation" ingame they say my internet ip is not available.. but it IS..

I know sometimes windows desides to not add some games to the firewall protocal even though they should run though steam which allways is added to the firewall as a safe software. But I would recommend just to add the game to the firewall so that it knows its ok to let though. Allso you might want to just add games for windows client to the list as well. Check link to see how its done, this is basicly the same on all windows. XP, VIsta, 7 and 8 :D (http://www.technipages.com/blockunblock-programs-in-windows-firewall.html)

If you dont trust links, just google how to unblock programs in windows firewall, and it should be the first link on the list or so. :D

i dont use bad windows firewall ;) i use kaspersky and its allowed there .. :(((((

can anyone help?? i installed upnp .. i activated it on my router.. but the networkinformation ingame says it is not rdy.. is it the problem? or is the problem unopen ports ?? i hate win live

as i say.. i can log in to win live offgame.. INGAME i can´t..

a UPnP tester can find my device (dlink 524) as well..

steam says : this game needs a special code .. here it is.. lalala.. but i do not have to enter the code.. thats also wierd.. its not my cd key..

Got the same issue. Can't log in through windows live, can't open the game (crush on start). First time as i've installed the game everything seemed to be ok but then i logged into win live... and here i am.

You know what i'm done. Yesterday i've spent 6 hours trying to make it work. That was the first and the last game i've bought from steam and i thought it would be less uncomfortable than finding a torrent. So i have an idea and a working solution.

How I got my copy to work, I uninstaled windows games live then I redownloaded it, it worked for me but it may not for you its just a tip try it and see if it works. Hope I helped a little I do hope for the best for you. ((If my grammer isnt the best its because ive been awake all night))

*Necromances thread* First, if you cant use live over your router for once, you will never be able to use it again on it. Second, the world will be freed of live on PC for, hopefully, eternity in july 2014. All games like base dow 2 and gta iv will be playable again. :,3
