| Make sure you don't put those files that caused the release control pop up. Try to run the game in Windows 2000 Compatibility mode or any other Compatibility mode for that matter, and also try to run it as administrator. And, as I've said in the previous post, install these: Games for Windows Live Update, .NET Framework 3.5 & the GTA IV Patch 188.8.131.52. Install them one by one and try to launch the game after each thing installed. Even if you have installed them at the time of my previous post, since you re-installed the game you don't have them anymore. |
In case that doesn't help already, try to use xliveless to by-pass Games for Windows Live, though it'll move your save file in the My Documents location and will also disable online play. But it can be all reverted by removing the installed xlive.dll file. Even the GTA IV Patch 184.108.40.206 could help if nothing else does. As a last resort check out this solution, in case NOTHING works.
I finally got it working!
I figured, that since the little CD-icon didn't pop up, it didn't read from the DVD.. and i was right. I made sure it knew the DVD was properly loaded, and THEN i launched the game.. Now it runs smoothly! Thanks for the help again!
