    Games For Windows Live Titles not working in Release Preview!

    I had no problems under Consumer Preview, but I can't get any of my GFWL titles to load at all with Release Preview! Latest version is installed (Apr '12) and Dirt 3, SSIV AE 2012, Bulletstorm all refuse to load.

    Dirt 3 and Bulletstorm start loading then give up. SSIV AE 2012 gives an error message.

    Removing and reinstalling GFWL hasn't helped. This is a on a clean install of W8 RP (with CP I did an upgrade from my Win 7 install).

    Anyone else had any luck?

    As it stands this is faintly catastrophic!

    I managed to get this working, *but* I'm not entirely sure how. I installed the Windows Live Sign In Assistant and got an update for GFWL via Windows Update ( it didn't show the first 4 times I checked, so fifth time lucky! ). Now all my GFWL titles work again.
