I can see the gta4.exe process start, then for a few seconds it closes.  No error messages, no crash window or anything.

OS: Windows 7 x64 Professional

Processor: Intel Core i3 Quadcore @ 3.30 GHz


Video: NVIDIA GeForce GT520 3.7 GB video ram


Here's what i've done so far:

Reinstalled the game multiple times

Made sure no mods or anything is installed, only the patch

Ran both LaunchGTAIV.exe and GTAIV.exe as administrator

Ran both in compatibility mode for Windows XP SP 3

Disabled antivirus

Disabled firewall


I can't think of anything else.  It has never done this before.  it was sitting on my computer and i hadn't played it in a while so i started it up and it crashed.  i thought maybe it was some old mods conflicting so i did a fresh install and it still crashes in the same way.

Try deleting all files from the Settings folder located at C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\Settings
