Games for Windows Live Connection Problem

I downloaded the latest version of Games for windows live and got Tinker for free but when I load up Tinker and try to sign in it won't connect.

I have the recommended ports opened and UPNP is on, the firewall is allowing them to access the internet too. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Whats the error message when you try to start the program? Also check out this tread altho we didnt manage to fix the errors, you might be able with some of our fixes: Gears of War + Windows 7 + Windows LIVE = FAIL

It's the first picture in that thread you posted. But I'll give it a read and see what can be done.

I found a solution to it. When you sign into live in the game you need to uncheck the "save email address" check boxes. I also deleted my IE cache too which may have helped as well.

Now I can sign in and play the game fine.
