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.

Can you link the correct GFWL fix please? It used to work on my friend's computer but i came over to his house a while after we first set it up and it doesn't work now, we've tried everything.

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.
