Have you tried updating the game and GFWL?

GTA IV Patch 1.0.7.0
GFWL Update

Try those and report back.

The known solution to fixing the issue [usual cause of it] of the game not launching in Windows 8 is to install .NET Framework 3.5. Don't forget to install the latest patch and GFWL as Girish pointed out. smile.gif

I have a HP Laptop Build 2000 and I have Windows 8 and GTA IV works On my laptop.

Try making sure you have no mods and get a no-cd crack.
Update your game to 1.0.7.0

I have 4 GB of ram.

Make sure you meet atleast the minimun system requirements.

Merry Christmas and Happy Gaming!!
