I changed my Xbox Live password recently and found I couldn’t login to GFWL this evening. “No problem”, I thought. Just change the password to my new one.
No, I can’t change the password. I can select the password field. It’s active, I can move the cursor back and forward but I can’t type or delete the * characters.
Luckily it was a simple, if non obvious, fix to get around this. Uncheck the “Save my e-mail address and password” and “Sign me in automatically” checkboxes. Now you can select the password field and change it. Don’t forget to “remember” the password again..
Yes, Games for Windows Live is a POS.

Yes, Games for Linux Live is significantly better 😉
GFWL is just… yea. Given how well they do XBL, it’s always a shocker to see how badly they handle it on PC.
Just encountered this problem myself – thanks for posting a solution.
Thank you thank you thank you, I was about to lose my shit over not being able to play a game I had just bought on steam. Also, thank you. 🙂
