Have you tried disabling 2-step authentication in your security settings?

Not sure if this is cause of the GFWL shutdown or not. But try going into your microsoft account from a web browser (xboxlive.com or some other service that uses that account) and log in with your GFWL ID and pass. There should be a security setting in the settings there to disable two-step authentication. If you have that enabled, try unchecking it to disable. That was the final piece for me that finally fixed GFWL. Once I did that, I was able to login in much more consistently. See if it works.

This solution worked for me : but i download only GFWL Redist and working:

In fact the file "gfwlivesetup.exe" install 3 other files, I simply install them separatly :
- GFWL Redist (Needed for all games) : http://download.gfwl.xboxlive.com/content/gfwl-public/redists/production/xliveredist.msi
- GFWL Marketpalace (Needed for Download DLC and contents on some games) : http://download.gfwl.xboxlive.com/content/gfwl-public/redists/production/gfwlclient.msi
- Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant (Not needed on Windows 8 ?) : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15106

Install at least GFWL Redist and you may run the game play the game online.

Steam needs to refund this game and take it off of marketplace. they are selling something that CAN NOT BE USED ANYMORE. If GFWL got shut down, you cannot save without it. ♥♥♥♥ing refund this, i just bought it today and you ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s said NOTHING about the ♥♥♥♥ing server for the game not even existing anymore. im♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ waste of my damn money for NOTHING but hours and hours of trying to fix this to find out there is no fix, its offline. permanently.
