When starting the game, a Social Club "Corrupt License File" error message is displayed and the game refuses to start. This problem may occur if the game is not installed in Program Files in C:.
After logging into your Social Club account, you will be prompted to exit by pressing ESC.
After pressing ESC, the screen does not advance to Main Menu.
The music will be rolling, but the Social Club UI will keep on Pop Out but will not continue to Main Menu.

Seems to happen for Windows 10 64 bit Users playing with Steam's L.A. Noire Complete Edition.
You may be able to fix this issue by using an offline rockstar profile. Go to create account, and click on the little gray link that says use offline profile for this game.
You also might be able to completely bypass this issue if you also own GTA V (on steam). These are the steps I followed to correct my issue
NOTE: YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO (to my knowledge) transfer an offline save online
L.A. Noire for Windows is known to freeze at the title screen during the synchronization process, or immediately after, when the camera moves away from the L.A. Noire neon sign. There are several possible reasons for this. Some of the most common are:
On 64-bit Windows 7, the game might freeze as soon as the synchronization (refresh) symbol shows up, which appears right after the Team Bondi logo. This is due to the game being incompatible with the current version of the .NET Framework 3.5 installed into your system. This is also the main reason why the associated .NET Framework installer provided with the game won't install.
This is caused by the display's overscan handling. See the Overscan entry for solutions, the linked article lists solutions for AMD, Intel and Nvidia chipsets.

Launch game as Administrator. If on Steam, exit Steam fully and launch it again as Administrator and then proceed to start the game.
If the game doesn't launch, at least an error window should pop up. In the latter case, it may not be necessary to launch as Administrator after said error was resolved.
To input launch parameters you have to open the launcher of the game, access the Options menu. There you can write the parameters into the Command Line field of the launcher. You might have to start the game manually using LANLauncher.exe located inside the installation folder to see the launcher. It's noteworthy that Steam always starts the game using LANLauncher.exe.
The following parameters are referenced inside the game's files and were likely intended for developer usage only. Their descriptions are taken directly from the game. There are many more that are completely unused, and therefore not listed here.
