I tried to search this on the internet but came back no luck.
I am NOT new to GTA and I played it on XBOX all the time. I recently bought a computer and installed GTA IV(Original) with Windows LIVE game client. Then I thought it would be nice to play TBoGT on pc, even though I already beat it on XBOX. But at first I had issues with starting TBoGT; after download completes, I clicked Episodes From Liberty City- The Ballad of Gay Tony, but instead of starting the game, the windows LIVE guide popped out and telling me that I have downloaded this item before, I only have a option to Redownload, or Cancel. I was confused and clicked redownload, and it took me to the Windows LIVE client again, to perform a download. I waited patiently for it to download, then started the game. But unfortunately it keep telling me that I 'have downloaded the item before'. Sometimes after I downloaded, a windows live notification pops out says; new content available, but it is impossible to start the game. It keeps telling me that I havn't download this addon, which I have already download it multiple times, and on Windows LIVE client it says it is installed. Obviously something has gone wrong. I did re-installed the whole game.
BTW I have GTA IV 1.0.7.0 updated version.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried installing the Games for Windows Live Update & the Episodes from Liberty City Patch 1.1.2.0?

I just found out my GFWLIVE is the latest one, and I have the TBoGT as an add-on to GTA IV, I don't have the Episodes From Liberty City game, what i said about EFLC is an option in GTA IV 1.0.7.0 version game. And I reinstalled the addon as we speak, still ask me to download it again.

 Games for Windows Live has been dicontinued my microsloth last month. Older games that used the gfwl will never work again. Only option is calling microsloth for a workaround (if any).

Finally I solved this problem! I deleted Xlive registry keys ([HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Software\Microsoft\Xlive]), uninstalled Games for Windows Live and then installed it. Now I can play TBoGT! :)
