Dead Rising 2 won't play

I am putting this here for I don't continue to highjack another topic.

Simple it's decrypted which following I saw the Step 1 of 3 pop-up with the last step being the install or something of GFWL. After that the pop-up goes away and the game just refuses to launch. It keeps bringing up the Step windows but shows no number and closes.

I am now checking integrity and installing the GFWL Client separately. Making this topic to keep updates on the attempts and maybe the fix if I find one.

For the record I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

Actually I will attempt that in a second. It did find three corrupted files.

EDIT: Also I respect the post. Thank you, didn't think Valve actually paid much attention to these forums.

I'm in the same boat. The GFWL pop-up just hangs there. I've restarted steam and my PC.

Just posting to say that everything worked fine for me. I preloaded the game a few days ago, and started it up without issues, though it wanted me to defragment the files, since they had something like 340000% fragmentation, whatever that means. Never had to do that with a steam game before, and I've been on steam for 8 years.

UPDATE:

After doing the install for GFWL and the scan it works. When I launched it Steam launched the GFWL Authentication check and then it played.

Oh good! It started right up for me. I hate it when it works fine for me and no one else. I'm booting up a second machine to see if that one works. In the meantime, I suggest trying Ordain's fix if you're having trouble.

I installed the GFWL client manually and it still crashes after it verifies the game's release date.

WIN7 64bit

I have to check integrity every time after it crashes and it finds 3 files to replace.

I used the GFWL client that came with the game.

I am guessing the three same files are the culprit. Is there a database that our corrupted files found are logged in that you could perhaps look into Chris? It would make your job easier if the problem turns to be more global.

Yes. I just downloaded the client, installed it and verified my game cache which found three files out of whack.
