[Fixed No More Assistance Needed.]
I went to connect to Games for windows live to play multiplayer with some friends on the PC version of GTA IV. When i went to connect it made me enter my Email and My password for windows live. After i did that it began to download my profile, Then it said my activation key was incorrect. The activation key is the exact same as the one on my games Manual. How can i fix this error?

How to Fix Error:
Step 1: Copy you GTA IV activation Key
Step 2: Go to www.xbox.com and sign into/Create an account
Step 3: Go to "Redeem Code" and paste in your activation Key
Step 4: You will be told that you have redeemed a code for "Grand Theft Auto IV' or "Grand Theft Auto EFLC"

I went to contact Rockstar on their fourms but they take FOREVER to tell you anything.....

 

Did you buy the game brand new or secondhand? Like Ebay or something?
