How To: Fix when game doesn´t start with GFWL
By BestNoob
Fix for GFWL - Games For Windows Live (Marketplace)
How To
It´s a really simple thing:

UPDATE 11.10.2015

Some people have problems with the other gfwl Installer.
This one i have linked is working 100% tested on Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Bit


Password: bestnoob4everatyoutube

For the case Steam is blocking this Link: uploaded(dot)net/8yey6c9h

Download and install the recent version in your language from here:


After Installation has finished you are able to run FlatOut Ultimate Carnage.

Tested and working on Windows XP , Vista and Windows 7

Or you can go to

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\FlatOut Ultimate Carnage\support

and run XLiveRedist01.02.0241.00.exe as Administrator (rightklick)

After Installation has finished you are able to run FlatOut Ultimate Carnage.

* Edit @ 24.06.2015

When the game still doesn´t start try to run it from the .exe file inside the game folder
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\FlatOut Ultimate Carnage
(Fouc.exe & Launcher.exe & LiveUpdateLauncher.exe)

Run it as Adminsitrator for the first time !

For Windows 8 Users try this if above doesnt work:

Run Games for Windows Marketplace Installation and after Installation the Program itself as Administrator ! (Rightklick - Run as Administrator)

If this doesnt work do a "rightklick" go to "settings" "compatibility"
And try to run it in Windows 7 compatibility mode

Search for Updates after you have installed it. You can find them under PC - Settings

If that doesnt work i have no Idea how to help Windows 8 and 8.1 users.
Windows 8 btw is ugly . Windows 7 x64 Bit Professional is the best choice for everyone.

Have Fun =)

I agree with bogvajj, following what they did works on windows 10! Just make an offline profile and it works perfectly

Thank you for the guide. Since gfwl install failed at first before I followed this guide and installed from the official link, Steam was trying to complete initial setup every time I launched the game. Deleting installscript.vdf in the game directory fixed that. The only annoyance left is being unable to skip the settings screen using some command line option.

Everytime I log in with my existing Live account, GFWL asks for my CD key. When I enter it, it says "Cant connect to Live" Error Code: 0x80070005. It wont let me save my progress unless he CD key is validated so Idk what else to do.
