Prejudice: Games for Windows Live failed to initialize *Possible Workaround*

I get this error when I try to start Prejudice. Already tried verifying the game files but it didn't change anything.

Any ideas how to solve this? OS is windows 7 x64 every other GFWL game works fine.

I'm getting the same issue, and the link won't load-- are the timegate forums/servers down?

I tried to add my CD-Key to GFWL but says it's invalid.

Yeah I did the same thing and it said invalid. I'm also getting the "GFWL failed to initialize" message when I try to run Prejudice. Hopefully this gets fixed soon. It's my day off and I wanted to play it

Be sure to update your .net framework to the newest versions if you haven't already. I've personally never had this issue, so I'm not sure how to fix it beyond making sure everything is up to date (I'm OCD with that).

TG boards are slow these last couple days. They're going to release a new Rush style game mode once they hit a combined total of 10 million kills between Xbox and PC, and the counter updates once a second.

We're not bashing the game we're just discussing an error what's wrong with that?


I also updated my .net framework and installed GFWL twice. Kinda depressed atm because I'm waiting for this game for soooo long.

Yep, I hear you man. I'm in the same boat. Tried reinstalling GFWL twice, updating .NET framework, etc. I'm running Win7 64-bit and I saw a post on the TG forums from a guy saying the same thing and he said his dad could run it on XP fine. Might be a Win7 64 issue?

I'm using Win7 64 and it's running fine.

What I would do in that situation is completely uninstall all versions of GFWL and .NET including cleaning out all traces of it in the registry. Then I would try reinstalling after that.
