Fatal Error in installing XLiveRedist.msi

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hello. I have been striving for some hours now, attempting to work out on how to make the XLive perform. Up to now I have tried every method I could come up with which consists of redeveloping Windows by hand, looking through each and every one of the "Windows Support Center" guidelines, reinstalling the game I require this for, and starting over between all the steps. I also visited the Games for Windows Live Support on quite a few occasions to instate it, but every time I attempt to, I acquire this message. I would be eternally grateful if you could help me with this problem.


An error has occurred while installing XLiveRedist.msi

If you are using either Windows Vista or Windows 7, I don’t see a compatibility issue here unless you are installing a very old version which still doesn’t support your operating system. Since your installer doesn’t work, try using a different installer. Try downloading Games for Windows Live Redistributable 3.5.0067.0/3.5.0092.0. It supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

Games for Windows Live or Games for Windows Live Redistributable is a handy tool from Microsoft that lets gamers from different parts of the world that are members of Xbox Live to connect and enjoy their favorite games. The TrueSkill matchmaking system is probably one of its many great features.

It is an enhanced option where players with the same value get pits in lag free games.
