    Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant fails to install

    Here's the issue. When I click on my Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant Installer, the installation pops up, with a message 'Please wait while Windows configures Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant' With a note written below 'gathering required information. Within few seconds, it shuts down leaving with no error message, but the installation is cancelled.
    I am running 8.1 Pro, on 64-bit. I've tried using both 64-bit & the 32-bit versions of the installer and yet nothing has helped. Tried Restarting several times too yet, the outcomes are the same. I've tried running the installers as admin and in compatability mode but no dice.

    I'm trying to install Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant because the install for Games for Windows Live Marketplace fails asking me to install it.

    Here was the fix;

    First, uninstall all the windows crap you installed trying to fix this.
    Second, Install GFWL (in W7 compatability + as admin) using the installer here
    Third, Install Sign-in Assistant (in W7 compataiblity + as admin) from here
