First: Quit game.

1. Uninstall GFWL in Control Panel (There are 2 GFWL programs, a client and a redistributable thingy)

2. After you completely uninstalled GFWL, you have to reinstall it.
Download it from here: http://www.xbox.com/LIVE/PC/DownloadClient

3. After installion finished, launch the game and enjoy ;)

anyone having this problem can try this as everything else did not work.

before installing the game on steam download the windows live sign in assistant from microsoft.

+++++this is important+++++ do not download any version that says 6.5 etc. make sure to only download "windows live sign in assistant:
(this is for windows 7 server 2008 not sre if it will ork on windows 8)

then download the games for windows live on xbox.com

install game on steam and it will launch just fine.

I had the same issue and followed what Szaki said to do and it worked.

Windows 8

I used Revo Uninstaller to uninstall GFWL

Antis, We are not getting a black screen. Our error was a pop-up saying ""An Unhandled Error occurred. (-1)"".

It sounds like you have another issue.

Thank you guys, I followed Szaki 사키 instructions and it worked pretty well.

When I try to launch GFWL, get an error about something missing from microsoft and when I click OK I'm told "impossible to install Zune on your computer"... anybody get that ?

I had this error as well, fixed this and about 3-4 others, now the game simply wont run, what a waste of time this mess of a port has been
not only do i wish I had my money back, If someone paid me to do what i did today i would want at least 60$
to me this game is worth at most -60$

i still have the issue

Same here, I've reinstalled the game twice and did at least four times what Szaki told us to do. My game simply do not open, and WHEN it does (rarely) I have this same error message. GFWL sucks, I wish the developers would stop using that crap.

Above solution didn't work for me. In the end I did it exactly like above, but as a last step I renamed Xlive.dll in "\Steam\SteamApps\common\Super Street Fighter IV - Arcade Edition" to another name.

I have no idea how or why but that solved it for me!

Man, why have to download any microsoft programs into your computer to begin with. I know it's to track and keep all your silly microsoft account data, but this is steam, I don't want to deal with any microsoft junk programs.
