GTA 4 Install issue


10Lives

Recommended Posts

Alright, I bought GTA IV in the winter that it came out, and it has worked, and has been enjoyed ever since on my Windows xp. Now, I boughten Windows 7 Home Premium, and installed the 64-bit version. After I have updated everything - from Service Pack to Video Card, I'm ready to install games. I tried to install GTA IV and I get this error below:

Feature: Grand Theft Auto IV

Component: GTAIV_Dynamic

File: E:\GTAIV\data2.cab

Error: Data error (cyclic redundancy check)

OS: Win7

Don't need other specs since it's in the install.. Help if you can, thanks!

First,please post the REQUIRED information from the Pinned Troubleshooting topic as posted by Justin(a Moderator) here for conveniance:

Before you post a topic, please read the pinned bug lists/fixes. It is likely that you're not the first person to encounter a problem, and we may have found a solution already. In addition to these pinned topics, please utilize the forum search engine. adamcs has produced an extremely helpful guide which explains the finer points of successful searching, accessible here.

 

If all of the above is no help, you'll need to post a new topic. Please provide useful topic titles. "Help" or "problem" give us no insight into the problem - every topic in the Troubleshooting forum will no doubt entail a problem seeking help!

 

To get the most amount of help for your problem, we need as many details as we can get about your system's specs. Therefore it is highly suggested (read: demanded) that you provide:

• What platform: PC, PS3, or X-Box

• What version number of GTA: IV

• What CPU and its speed

• How much RAM, also what kind (DDR, SDRAM) and speed

• What video card

• Which version of Windows (and any service packs)

• Which DirectX version

• What sound card

• History: Is this your first install? Did it work once before? Anything that is relevant.

• Screenshots, if applicable. This is especially necessary with display issues which can be explained far easier by use of visual aids.

• Above all else, a detailed description of your problem. Give as much information as possible! Keep it relevant, though. We don't need a fifty-page printout from some diagnosis program. Usually the above prompts will suffice.

Are you using the Original DVD or a copy of DVD? Any N0-DVD cracks? Any Mods/Trainers? If using the Original DVD, any scratches/dirt on disk?

 

But, more likely this is a disk (or lack of a disk) related issue, from the error in the first post.

This is GTA IV, not San Andreas, that works fine.. I can't really use hardware into a installation problem, besides the disc drive I guess.. But that's perfect, I use it all the time..

 

Wish me luck because for some reason, it got farther into the installation and is asking for DVD 2..

Try copying both disks manually to some HDD folder and install from there, that usually does the trick.

It worked when I did the normal install, I ran the setup.exe as administrator, I'm gonna have to remember that this is win7, not xp... Thank's for repliers though!
