EDIT: this post is WIP because of me accidentally hitting ENTER

Introduction

Greetings all! Games for windows live can be a real pain in the ass, so I'm going to try my best to help you all with this service that is included with GTA IV and GTA EFLC

 

First-time startup

When GTA IV starts up you should see a screen like this

Now you can either sign in to a Games for windows live account OR create a new LIVE profile

Once you sign in it will download your profile, and you should see this

If all goes well, you should be signed into live.
