What's strange is it isn't prompting me to input the key that it says it will need.

Figured it out. I had to try installing from a different source on the Microsoft website. Looks like their new links didn't propagate throughout the entire site.

I recently helped a friend get through that gfwl bs to get the game running and able to connect online. Such a headache but it's worth it!

Make sure you enable save backups through dsfix.

I did...I relaunched the game after I made the tweak to make sure it works..and it does!

It's killing you before you can even get to the title screen.

It's GFWL that was f***ing up, not Dark Souls or DSFix.

Yeah...I think the game was programmed to first hit the GFWL servers for inputting a key for activation. And when GFWL wasn't launching correctly, it caused everything else to error out.

Not sure if you are still having problems...but if you are, the version I used was in the "Best Solution" post at this forum: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/4241-73-gfwl-working-windows

Uninstall any previous versions, then try that link they provide. That was the one that finally worked for me.
