I litterally just had this pc built so every driver etc is updated.
I will log into WindowsLive games to see if it updates.
I will post my results. Thanks guys!

I created a windows live account and logged in but nothing updated. Do I have to do something specific to get the update happen for GTA IV?

Should I log into it and see if it updates?

Games For Windows Live is the one for the updates, but you must make an account for both. After the 2nd or 3rd update, it tells you that you no longer need Social Club to play online/ play the game.

Nope, just play the game and it should automatically request an update... otherwise the game cannot be played.

Where did you obtain this copy of GTA4?

When you say "play the game" do you mean in multiplayer mode? Because I haven't tried that. Also, do I have to be logged into the social club and windows live before hand? Does windows live just run in the background?

Windows live has me confused. I know I'm not doing something right and it is frustrating the hell out of me. At one point it had me log into what looked like windows live for xbox and at another point I logged in using my hotmail usernname and password because it would not accept the one I just created.

The same goes for the social club. I don't know what Im supposed to do when I'm there or how to find the multiplayer games.

What would happen if I uninstall and reinstall the game and create a new account for the social club and windows live? Does the social club and windows live attach the cd keycode to the registration somehow at which point it would tell me the cd code is already in use by another member?

I purchased the game at walmart just the other day.

Play the game as in single player..

Yes you need to be signed into both beforehand.

hotmail accounts work for windows live. so just make an account based on you hotmail account.

before you uninstall you need to run the key de-register. This will unlock your serial from any accounts, then do a reinstall. then try make new accounts and see how that goes..

How do I "run the key de-register"? I'm a noob at all of this.
