Anyone with Windows 8 getting DOW2 to work?
So I have a new install of Windows 8. Installed GFWL Marketplace Client. All drivers updated. Installed DOW2. Won't launch. Crashes as soon as Steam's "launching" window goes away, makes me submit a bug report which tells me it's something with GFWL. I log into the Marketplace client, try again. Nothing. Log in to Games on Windows 8, still doesn't launch. Verified files on Steam, still won't launch. Uninstalled and reinstalled DOW2. STILL won't launch, same error every single time. Running Windows 8 64-bit. Cannot find anything on Google that shares this issue.

hmm win 8 here, had an issue with this myself. try restart machine. load steam, run GFWL (no need to login yet), then run DOW2 through steam. if it works use the ingame GFWL login.

What I did to fix was uninstall GFWL through Control Panel. Then installed Microsoft Flight. Suddenly all my GFWL games work. Not sure why Microsoft Flighs' GFWL works better tha the actual program, but hey. It works now.

What worked for me was going to the steam folder and deleting the appcache folder and restarting my computer... did the trick.

I had the same issue. I executed gfwlivesetup.exe from the dawn of war 2 SteamApps directory.
\Steam\SteamApps\common\Dawn of War 2\Install\gfwlivesetup.exe

I installed the latest games for windows client for windows 8.
