GTA 4 From Steam - G4WL gives invalid serial key

    • Level   3

    I buyed GTA 4 on Steam and im getting invalid serial key when logging into Games for Windows live.

    I already sent support tickets to Steam, G4WL, Rockstar 2 days ago and no answers and/or refund.

    Alots of people complaining about the same issue in steam forums.

    I want to play the game.

    Okay, try redeeming the key here on the Xbox.com website . If it accepts the key, either download and install or if it's already installed, Launch the Games for Windows Marketplace, then go to the downloads tab click on GTA 4 and select the view game keys. The key it gives you there should let you sign-in within the game.

    Now all I have to do is to install GTA IV through that GFWL client? Wouldn't want to waste a lot of time again.

    I didnt reinstall, just edited cdkey on regedit and inserted it on Games for windows live and worked.

    start -> run -> regedit -> hkey_current_user -> software -> rockstar games -> Grand Theft auto IV -> CDKey

    Edit CDKey value to new cd key and insert new cd key on games for windows live.

    For me worked without reinstall :)

    You do not need to reinstall the game, the same code (the one that you get from inside the Games for Windows Marketplace) work on both the Steam and GFWL versions.  Simply start the game and when it asks for the key put in the one from the Marketplace.
