GTA IV Fatal Error: WS10

Question

whirloop

Hi guys!

I've tried whole weekend to make game start.

Every time I launch gta I get error saying "GTA IV FATAL ERROR: WS10"

 

http://www.aijaa.com/v.php?i=3204789.jpg

 

"WS10 - XNetStartup failed - Please re-boot your system and/or re-install the game"

 

I have reboot my system and re-install game couple times but it won't help. I always end up that same error.

I tried several display drivers and Microsoft .NET frameworks.

So situation is this: I can't play this game at all!! angry.gif

 

Im running Windows Vista 64bit

Q6600

4GB RAM 800 MHz

GeForce 8800 GTS

ASUS P5KC motherboard

Retail version of GTA IV

This error indicates that a problem has occurred with Microsoft Live.

 

Uninstall Live, then re-install Live.

You know when you guys start up RGSC, and you see those updates, it shows one for windows live, click on the picture and download and install it. Hopefully it should fix it.

I had the WS10 fatal error too every time I've started the game on a Windows XP. I've tried reinstalling just about anything without any effect.

 

The problem was fixed by updating the drivers for my motherboard; ASUS P5E. More precisely I installed "Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility V8.3.0.1013 for Windows XP & 64bit XP & 32/64bit Vista(WHQL)" from asus.com and then the WS10 error went away and I can start the game. So for other people with ASUS motherboards this may be a fix.

 

Now I've move on to fighting the new and interesting "game crashes after 5 minutes" error...

Hi whirloop, I had the same problem with "ws10". Try this:

 

1. Click on Start->Settings->Control Panel->Add or Remove Programs

2. Remove everything with name "Microsoft Games for Windows" (blue icon)

3. Launch "Rockstar Games Social Club"

4. There is "Latest Rockstar Social Club News" on the right

5. Download "Games for Windows LIVE" by clicking on the picture with this inscription

6. Install (that's all)

 

Now should be ok. At least in my case it's ok smile.gif

Hope this helps people solve the dreaded WS10 error.

 

 

Troubleshooting: GTA IV WS10 Error Fix

 

I spent hours trying to fix this problem. After much research and experimentation I finally got GTA IV running.

 

Here is my suggestions:

- Update to the newest NVIDIA (180.84)/ATI (8.12) driver

- Update to the most recent drivers for your motherboard chipset

- Update to Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1

- Restart your computer

 

If it still doesn't work try the following:

- Reinstall GTA IV

 

That worked for me, if you aren't so lucky I suggest you trade your copy of GTA IV for a firebomb and book a flight to Rockstar.  devil.gif

Guys, I had the WS10 error and almost lost my goddamn mind with it.

 

I uninstalled and installed the game back.

Then got the latest patch, and the game somehow just worked again, even though I had it installed before already.

Might have been the GTAIV Magic Patcher that messed something up.

 

So if you're using Magic Patcher, the stop doing it because it's not even needed in version 1.0.2.

Uninstall Live, then re-install Live.

This is pathetic advice you fools were the ones who made us sign up for this unusable program.

I have reinstalled it till im blue in the face this is the work of complete incompetents.

Rockstar have turned into a joke with the tie up to microsoft

WS10 error FIX by me:

 

Uninstall MGFWL, then install the new MGFWL THAT include the update for MGFWL. You can download the correct updated MGFWL from here:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/0...ivesetupmin.exe

If you still have the problem:

Go to START -> RUN

Type “regsvr32 msxml.dll” (without the quotes)

Click “Run”

A message box will notify you if this process was successful

Go to START -> RUN

Type “regsvr32 msxml3.dll” (without the quotes)

Click “Run”

A message box will notify you if this process was successful

THAN it should work.

That won't work for me. I can't register those DLLs, one isn't there, and the other gets an error while loading.
