View Full Version : Trying to redeem code but...
23rd Feb 09, 4:38 AM
Well i got my preorder version but live wont let me redeem my code. It says its either expired or is not available in my region.
I suggest you contact official support for the game (details will be in the manual) - as a fan run forum, we cannot check the validity of your code.

Where are you trying to redeem the code? You need to start the GFWL client outside the game and do it from there.

Yeah, GFWL=Games for Windows Live, then go to Marketplace tab and redeem code. Of course, it says all this on the card with the code on it.

It is not working for me either.
I have 2 different codes and I get the same message for both of them.
When I registered with “Games for Windows Live” client I was taken to the Xbox market place where both codes were rejected.
When I signed out and tried to login back with “Games for Windows Live” I get the message that my user id is invalid.
However, I can login with my user id to Xbox Live.
“Games for Windows Live” is extremely buggy.
It’s was a bad idea to go with Microsoft marketplace.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

This may be a silly question, but have you updated to the latest version of GFWL (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=6f966188-1e50-41c3-a689-181edc57c0e0)?

I'm also having an issue with redeeming my code.
I'm running xp with a fresh install of .net and a fresh install of the latest GFWL & Steam.
I can log into Windows Live and Steam just fine. I'm also at the correct place to get the download (took me a while to find this as after first install the game tries to goto XBoxLive instead of Windows Live for whatever reason, I dont even own an Xbox)
but I get this error message:
I've posted on the official windows live forum here:

I can log into Windows Live on the Web but not via the Windows Live client.
When I registered via Windows Live I was taken to Xbox live where the redeem code didn’t work.
Obviously Windows Live is very buggy and it is probably going to take Microsoft ages to fix this problem.
As a result of this “Windows Live” issue I cannot even play online.
What a fiasco.

I can log into Windows Live on the Web but not via the Windows Live client.That suggests the problem is either your router and/or firewall blocking the GFWL client from connecting. I had a similar problem trying to download Operation Anchorage for Fallout3 from the GFWL client, and found it was my AVG8 firewall blocking inbound connections from GFWL.
You may find some things to help you from these links:
If you can't make it work after forwarding the ports shown in those threads, please post your dxdiag.txt and hijackthis.log files along with the make and model of your router and we'll dig a bit further.
