Super Street Fighter® IV Arcade Edition

Super street fighter 4 wont update and black screens

By CrackedFingers posted 9th May 2014

When I boot SSF4, it tells me games for windows live needs to update.
After the update finishes it says to restart the game to apply the update, I quit the title to my desktop and the update applied and relaunches SSF4 which black screens.
When I close it and run it again, it asks me to do the games for window live update again as before.

Any idea how to get this running im on windows 7 64bit

Download GFWL web installer from here:
It should update GFWL version that comes with the game. I think you can install it without uninstalling the older version.
This should fix your black screen.
