It just worked for me, when I installed it Win 8 (64-bit) said there was a compatibility issue with Win8 and H2v so I clicked okay or whatever the button said and it worked anyways.

Just make sure you have all your MS .Net and Windows Updates first, and when you run the game to get the Live/game updates you may need to right click on the executable and select Run As Admin.

Any time I reinstall H2V after formatting my PC (regardless of OS), I always run the H2 update, and live update before even attempting to run the game.

H2V update
Games for Windows Live Update

After installing those two, try again.

Yes, the issue is that H2v gets upset if you install another game that has a newer version of Live (such as Dark Souls) before updating Live through H2v.

To do it properly one would probably need to install the game and update Live first, then test and play the game online or at least connected to G4WL.

Later, you would install other (newer) Live games, but the Live part would already be set up so it would not stop H2v from running.


In your case you might be screwed without a reinstall and following the proper install order as I just outlined, so try what we have suggested first.
