DiRT3 Games for Windows Live - Update Fails on Windows XP error: 0x800B0003

    • Level   1

    You get the following error when trying to download update for DiRT3:
    "Update Failed
    Can't download the update. Make sure that you are connected to the Internet. If the problem persists, go to www.gamesforwindows.com/support.

    This is due to GFWL/DiRT3 being too dumb to push out a windows update to fix the issue before it downloads the game update...

    The problem is that the DiRT3 update is 600+MB and without the following patch Windows XP cannot validate it. Instead it downloads the whole thing then whinges it can't download it!

    You need to install this windows patch:

    "Games for Windows – LIVE: When installing from the client, you receive an error message: “Can’t install item (0x800B0003)”

    You cannot install a software package because the WinVerifyTrust function in Windows XP cannot validate the certificates for large signed files. This problem typically occurs when the signed file is larger than 500 MB."
