Installed it. All I got is a "starter" that says. "The game is already running." And a grayed out "Play" button. ???

@Wuddel: I believe it should be patching, if not you might have somthing wrong with your internet connection, firewalls etc not letting it through

@Wuddel: I had the same problem and just reinstalled the game and put the game in another folder than the program files (x86) folder and then it worked. Hope this helps.

For me, it sits for a minute on that screen (grayed out "Play" button and text telling me the game has launched), but it eventually loads up. If you have a really crappy computer it might be getting stuck there, but it's probably something else.

@Wuddel: @Sargus:Both problems come from Games for Windows Live starting up.

For me it stays like that for maybe 30seconds tops then the game starts just fine.

A friend of mine was having some trouble with the launcher, turns out he wasn't executing it as an admin. After he did so it worked perfectly.
