GTA IV PC TBoGT Starting Issues
Posted 23 April 2013 - 07:59 PM
I am NOT new to GTA and I played it on XBOX all the time. I recently bought a computer and installed GTA IV(Original) with Windows LIVE game client. Then I thought it would be nice to play TBoGT on pc, even though I already beat it on XBOX. But at first I had issues with starting TBoGT; after download completes, I clicked Episodes From Liberty City- The Ballad of Gay Tony, but instead of starting the game, the windows LIVE guide popped out and telling me that I have downloaded this item before, I only have a option to Redownload, or Cancel. I was confused and clicked redownload, and it took me to the Windows LIVE client again, to perform a download. I waited patiently for it to download, then started the game. But unfortunately it keep telling me that I 'have downloaded the item before'. Sometimes after I downloaded, a windows live notification pops out says; new content available, but it is impossible to start the game. It keeps telling me that I havn't download this addon, which I have already download it multiple times, and on Windows LIVE client it says it is installed. Obviously something has gone wrong. I did re-installed the whole game.
BTW I have GTA IV 18.104.22.168 updated version.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Finally I solved this problem! I deleted Xlive registry keys ([HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Software\Microsoft\Xlive]), uninstalled Games for Windows Live and then installed it. Now I can play TBoGT!
