Dark Souls on Windows 8.1 Save Issue

GFWL doesn't seem to be friends with Windows 8, but its required for saving. Is there a workaround?

I run Dark Souls just fine on 8.1, but do recall having to manually download the version of GFWL I'm currently using for another game that was giving me issues.

Maybe check Google.

I've been googling around, no luck. What version of GFWL are you using?

I.....have no idea. O_O

It's not anywhere under apps and there is no entry in installed programs, but it is there.

Like I said, I had an issue starting a game that used GFWL and the fix I found involved a manual install.

Don't remember what game but I'll go check my Steam list and see if I can remember. Should be able to track down the version I used.

Well, I have no idea what game it was I installed.....even then it was the specific error message i got that led me to the fix.

So I went into Dark Souls to check the version number of GFWL, but it doesn't show a version number when I go to 'Version' in the menu. -.-

Sorry.
