Games for Windows Live Update error

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I got Batman: Arkham City free by buying a Samsung 830 64GB SSD on newegg. ive finally got it downloaded and now the patch is out,
however since this version is not through steam it is GFWL. So far every time i have tried to log in to GFWL in-game it says there is an update for GFWL, and everytime i try to update it gets near completion then presents error code 0x80004005.
this error code spans almost all of MS's products, and i have found NO hard dirt on what it actually means. most things point to permissions or connection problems, but im running as admin already and my connection is working fine.
I tried Uninstalling/reinstalling GFWL and changing my DNS servers, and it still pops up with this error code.

GFWL client says to go to the GFWL Website for support, However, MS merged GFWL with XBlive so that doesn't exist anymore.
This has happened to other people in the past and there were threads present on the GFWL site, which now don't exist anymore due to the merge.
I am currently waiting in a queue for XBOX support chat because MS wont let you chat or email if your issue is with PC games (bunch o crap right there, thanks MS)

Anyone here got any ideas?
