    Hey,

    Are you getting any errors etc? Or are you getting certain things happening? I.e. It loads, but freezes etc. 

    Cheers.

    Do you have the latest GFWL installed? You can find it from xbox.com. That is something you need for at least 2011. Please do uninstall any older versions of GFWL before intalling the newest version.

    What is GFWL and how does it work?

    Games for Windows LIVE. It's sort-of Steam, but it was Microsoft's try to counter Steam, which flopped massively. It's discontinued for a few years already, but you can find the installs with Google's help.

    I know this sounds a bit 'needy' but is it possible you can give me instructions of which version I need with my PC information. Like what do I need to do to install and uninstall GFWL, which GFWL I need, and then what etc.

    1. Make sure you haven't installed Games For Windows Live (Google if you don't know where to install/uninstall programs)
    2. Download Games For Windows Live ( Direct link: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=201134 ) or these days you can use the Windows 10 XBOX app too but I don't know does it work properly with F1 2011.
    3. The game should work except if there is another problem, we'll see it after that

    Apologies once again, but when I click launch, I get this error. https://gyazo.com/6670e193fda50431e514eff62a80e3c7

    When you launch what? You don't really need to launch the games for windows live actually, but that is something I can't really help with as my GFWL app works fine.

    When I click launch on the GFWL. After its finished installing. Do I not need to select that?

    I think installing it is enough. Have you tried opening one of the games yet?
  • SgtKubicaSgtKubica Member Wheel Nut
    Not yet will do soon and tell you results
  • SgtKubicaSgtKubica Member Wheel Nut
    Still no change. I'm getting this. https://gyazo.com/31dd265552d216b9923b67de6e5d0890

    The launcher opens for a few seconds but the game does not open itself.

    Hmm... Which one of the two is this? Sadly I think I can't really help with this kind of stuff. I could recommend you to try xliveless (which will delete GFWL from the game) and try if that works. Even though I play F1 2011 every week, I'm not able to help someone with a completely different setup :/
  • SgtKubicaSgtKubica Member Wheel Nut
    I'm using 2011. I can't get F1 2010 as it's no longer on Steam store for some reason. (I don't have an Xbox btw). 

    Let me explain everything. I brought F1 2010 a while ago (around April 2017) with 2011, but both didn't work. I got refund for both. However, I'm willing to try again. I have rebrought 2011 today and tried what you said. I can't rebuy 2010 as it's not on the store anymore. When I try to open 2011, the installing tab opens up for about 2 seconds, and then disappears as normal. On the game library on Steam, it says F1 2011 is running for about 10 seconds, then this disappears and the game does not open. It does this with and without the GFWL.

    Now, when I try installing GFWL, I download it and it opens with the usual 'okay to make changes to pc etc'. I go through this to the installing part and once it finishes installing, it comes up with two options. Launch and close. Close just closes the tab, but if I click launch the error message comes up. I've tried troubleshooting this but still no luck.

    That is the full story. Sorry if it was misleading or unclear before.

    Ok well after much experimenting earlier this year I worked it out.
    1) So first of all u need to go to (SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\F1 2010). After that remove the GFWL.dll and configuration file.
    2)Then replace it with these 2: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1rNEQy86rfsh7OnK0H2pQ8vi69sD6M-q7.
    3)After that you will need to right click on the games launch icon. Again use the one in the games folder.
    4)Right click go to 'Comaptibilty' and then select 'Run this program in Compatibilty mode for' and then you want that to be Windows 7.

    For f1 2011 you need to run it in administrator mode aswell. Not sure about F1 2010, I'd recommend if it doesn't work just doing the opposite for running in admin mode. Hope this will work!

    PS: U will also need to repeat step 1+2 for each game :)

    Oh and finally a disclaimer. If that method happens to work for you, you will not be able to play online. As if there would be any lobbies online, but just to put it out there.

    What I think is that the third and fourth steps are not needed. Usually xliveless just works when you put it there. Also I don't know what the forum thinks about xliveless as it's used to bypass the game's DRM...
