Error installing Microsoft games for windows error

Hello all

I recently tried to install the games for windows live but when I run the gfwlive setup, it downloads successfully but when I start the installation, I am met with an error on my screen.

The screenshot of the error is attached below:

Microsoft Games for windows – LIVE Redistributable

The message states:

Microsoft Games for windows – LIVE Redistributable

An error occurred during the installation of assembly Microsoft. VC80, CRT, publickey token= “1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b”, type= “win32”, version= “8.0.50727.762”, processor Architecture= “x86”, please refer to help and support for more information.

To sort out the issue I have searched several log files eventually discovering the error code (0x8007078f) which refers to a logon failure and states:

Logon Failure: The machine you are logging onto is protected by an authentication firewall. The specified account is not allowed to authenticate to the machine.

I have 64-Bit Windows 7, and my processor is a Core i7-740.i have searched a lot for the solution on the internet and found many similar problems but no solution. Now I am at my wits end. I have also tried reinstalling my windows, but of no use.

Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Kindest regards.

Hi Jeff Mathie,

You’re installing 32Bit software to a 64Bit Operating System and it may produce incompatibility issue. Try downloading the 64Bit version of the gfwlive setup files and install it to your computer.

Hello Jeff,

First of all you should try and reinstall the following package: Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistribute Package (x86). This will help you with the error for Microsoft VC80 CRT.

Please reply and let me know if this works.

Thanks.
