the trick is to run the gfwl installer, win8 will prompt you that there is a known compatibility issue and will give you a link to the version that works in win 8. First thing you need to do is uninstall gfwl, both of them the app and the marketplace. Then when you attempt to use the installer you should get the error.

This installer worked for me, After I uninstall the old versions.

Be careful uninstalling gfwl, you will loose all of your save games for every gfwl game! Maybe there are files you can copy over from the old install, not sure.

Described above did not help me, but it helped:

Some movie players can experience some problems with their games, Games for Windows Live (GFWL) in Windows 8. We found a solution to these problems.Follow these steps:

1. Visit the website of Games for Windows Live to download the application GFWL. http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/LIVE/PC/DownloadClient (how you know)
2. Right-click on the downloaded file and select Properties.
3. On the Compatibility tab, check Run this program in compatibility mode for:
3.1 Choose from the list of WINDOWS 7 and select RUN THIS PROGRAM AS AN ADMINISTRATOR.
4. By installing these boxes, then click OK, and then run the setup file.
5. When installation is complete your game GFWL should work CORRECTLY (Checked).

And such banality works! And I had not thought of? :)

I am still having that same issues of not being able to launch Street Fighter X Tekken after successful purchase from Steam 2 days ago.

When trying to launch. It just showed a black screen .
When I flipped pages with Alt Tab it shows : Fatal Error: An Unhandled error occured (0vffffffff)


Somebody ..please help me resolve this!

I have tried the steps above but it still does not work.
Is there any other way?

I have also sent queries to Steam support.

Remove GFWL with the computer completely, clean the registry of some program. Best way to remove a IOBit Uninstaller. Then restart the computer. And again made the above. So I helped)
