  8. have you guys tried to update using the admin account of your pc? I had a similar "problem". It would update, but not really finish the update due to limited administrative rights on my account. In the end it worked fine with me.

    good luck
  9. OK Guys, I solved this Fu kin' problem!

    I bought Serial number and activated it, but my game started updating. I could not play, every time, when I started game, GFWL started updating (I had 3GB repack version). I started searching at forums, and someone said me, that it was Versions problem. Then I started download several different versions, and I found original version (7.44GB). I uninstalled old version and started installing new version. At installation process, setup asked me to enter product key (When I bought Serial Key, it followed Product Key, too). I entered product key and installed game with succesfull. Game did not started, asked Original disc. I had a mini Disc and mounted it in Daemon Tools Pro. After them, game started and GFWL asked me about update, again. I made update and exited from game. Windows installer continued installing patch, and finished it succesfull, too.
    After this steps game started and I can play at Online without any problem. I solved this fu ckin problem :)
