RGSC & Patch Problems FIXED:

Recommended Posts

Shortly after making these posts:

 

Can't install the patch.

 

I have it manually downloaded (I also tried to apply it three times automatically through Live in GTA IV).

 

Every single time I open up Setup.exe, it says: Error: Rockstar Games Social Club was not detected.

But I have RGSC open, I have it maximised, I signed in and out and back into it.

The only changes I've made to anything GTA IV related is "no memstrict" "no vidmem" in the command parameters of the LaunchGTAIV.exe.

 

EDIT:

I've now uninstalled and reinstalled RGSC. When I click PLAY, it says "Error: Application failed to launch" as if GTA IV's not there anymore.

 

I can start GTA IV fine by opening the GTA shortcut on my desktop. Everytime it tries to apply the update in-game, it says RGSC isn't running, takes me to desktop, I can see it clearly IS running, and it starts up GTA IV again where it tells me I have a patch update please apply.

 

 

.. A Rockstar Toronto rep PM'd me. They were really helpful, and it seems (for some reason) Grand Theft Auto IV had taken itself out of the registry but Social Club was still in.

 

To check this - I went to Start, Run, Regedit, HKLocal Machine, Software, Rockstar Games

 

If "Grand Theft Auto IV" isn't there, there's a problem. Even so, if it is and still persists, follow on..

 

Here's what I did to fix everything:

 

I ran Setup in GTA IV Disc 1, chose Repair, the whole process took less than 3 minutes as most of the files were already there.

 

After that I closed RGSC, and let it reinstall stuff (Visual C++ pack, RGSC, etc)

 

Then opened up RGSC, pressed PLAY and the patch came up again, but this time after taking me back to desktop it worked.

 

I put "no memrestrict" and "no restrictions" back onto the shortcut (all I do is increase my view distance from 26 to 28, nothing else) and its working awesomely.

 

Here are my specs for reference:

--------

Quad-Core 6600

8800GTX

2GB DDR2 Dual-Channel

Windows XP

--------

 

Settings on GTA IV (gives 30-40fps performance:)

--------

Res: 1680x1050

Texture Quality/Level: both HIGH

Draw Dist. 28

Detail Dist. 71

Cars 33

Shadows 4

---------

 

I just want to say thank you to the Reps from Rockstar for helping out, when the patch DOES work, it works amazingly. And I can't wait to get back into GTA IV some more.

The "play" button worked, but it still gave me "Error: Rockstar Games Social Club was not detected." after the game is updated and tried to restart

If I launch setup.exe manually it says I don't have R* club installed.

However after that repair thing I didn't bother to redownload alll those updates. Why should I? They weren't removed by gTA???

Change the compatibility of GTAIV to windows 2000. and the RGSC error vanish, but when you start the game, you have the first screenshot (the credit I think) and after that the game crush (GTAIV Error!)

 

I hope help you! sorry for my english i'm Italian!

I tried repairing too when I had this problem a year ago, but that didn't work. Long story short, I downloaded the Steam update for RGSC and after installing it, the problem was fixed. user posted image

 

*EDIT*:

Whoops, I didn't realize that someone bumped it. dozingoff.gif
