Keeps telling me that my Windows Live ID or Password is incorrect

#1 Posted by Lukeweizer (2638 posts) -

Trying to log in to play Fallout 3, but it keeps telling me that my Windows Live ID or password is incorrect. I've tried logging in on Xbox.com, and it worked. Don't know what the problem is. Anyone encountered this before?

Yeah I had the same problem when I was trying to log into Windows Live ID through Microsoft Flight. I changed my password once and I got in but it refused to download my profile (shows you how long I've used it since...Fallout 3 actually) so I changed it again and finally it worked. I don't know why it worked then. I did learn that WLID is still crap though.

I tried changing it, managed to sign in. Then changed it back to what it was, and now it won't let me again. Seems to not like whatever characters I'm using. Really fucking annoying.

@Lukeweizer: Yeah it's not exactly easy to know what you're missing with having Windows Live ID, the Xbox website Games For Windows Marketplace. I can't remember the specifics but as I said before I was just flip flopping between those three and just decided to change the password for all of them into the same word (not a great idea but whatever) and just hope in the off chance it would work. So try that with a very simple password perhaps?...it's frustrating I know.

I'm having the same problem and i don't even own an Xbox. First said my account was hacked or something, change password. Accepts changed password but says my profile is wrong. Windows Live ID seems crappy. I only set it up so I could play Viva Pinata...
