Grand Theft Auto IV GFWL Key

Question

sirvildan

Hello everyone. Can I somehow get the key from Games For Windows Live? I activated this game there, now I want to activate it with the same key in Rockstar Games Launcher, (or on Steam, if possible) but I lost the disk with the key.

I would try contact microsoft support and ask to them this information. I don't see any other way if you lost the disks...

Did you activate the game on Steam? If it is in your Steam Library then all you have to do is download it again and install it.

Note the original GTA IV and GTA EFLC from steam have been replaced by a new version called Grand Theft Auto IV The Complete Edition. From it you can launch either GTA IV or GTA EFLC.

I had both GTA IV and GTA EFLC from steam on my laptop. They were automatically updated to the new version a couple weeks ago. Note part of the new version was to remove Games for Windows Live.

 

Games for Windows Live has been shut down. You can't activate it from them.

 

The Rockstar Games Launcher does not support the original GTA IV or GTA EFLC. It only supports the new Grand Theft Auto IV The Complete Edition.

 

I reinstalled GTA IV and GTA EFLC on my desktop just last month. I bypassed Games for Windows Live by doing this:

If you have the original disk version of GTA IV you will be able get a free update to Grand Theft Auto IV The Complete Edition.Unfortunately you will have the original product key to do so.

 

I just checked my copy. The Product Key for GTA IV was printed on the back cover of a booklet called "Games for Windows On Liberty It's Our BEST OF... Issue Ever" It was included in the same case as the CDs.

 

I just activated my GTA IV disk version in the Rockstar Games Launcher. Where it says enter Rockstar Activation Code I entered my Product Key. It now gives me a link to install the new version Grand Theft Auto IV The Complete Edition.

 

April 2020 (available now):

 

Games previously activated using Games for Windows Live will require players to create and/or link their Social Club accounts in replacement of Games for Windows Live to update to Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition.

  • Download and install the Rockstar Games Launcher:
    https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/rockstar-games-launcher
  • Sign in with your Rockstar Games Social Club account
  • Link Social Club and Steam accounts
  • Click your avatar in the top right
  • Select Redeem Code
  • Enter your Rockstar Activation Code into the field
