I completed Section 8 Prejudice installation but when I run the game nothing happens. I uninstalled and re-installed Games for Windows Marketplace application and redistribution but the game still won't run. How can I solve it?

Some users have reported an issue with Games for Windows - LIVE (GfWL) causing Section 8 to crash on start-up with the message “Games for Windows Live failed to initialize” or similar GfWL error messages. These are most likely caused by an improper installation of GfWL, a conflicting network setting, or conflicts with virus scanning software.

In order to resolve this issue, please try the following in order:
