and the gta iv installatins behave differently on windows 8 versus 8.1 (imo). original poster, copy down your error and post it... or google. gta iv is so buggy, i guarantee someone on the internet has had your issue. this weekend i just installed gta iv myself on 8.1 and had to google till the cows came home to play it. 

make sure c+ 2005 (?) is installed though

If you have it through Steam then it should work just fine

If you have the disk version of Games for Windows Marketplace try using compatibility settings on GTAIV.EXE or STARTGTAIV.EXE

(Right click proporties and then compatibility) and try windows 7, xp etc
