GTA IV EFLC not working on Windows 7.

Question

avbros

Ok,it's been 2 years since i have upgraded to Windows 7.

When i was on Windows XP,i could run EFLC perfectly,i completed it.

Then,when i upgraded to Windows 7,i got an error "GTA EFLC has stopped working" and the game got shut down after the error.This error came after the R* logos.

2 years on,i am still getting that error,and i just had a sudden urge to play the game.

I googled,but couldn't find any proper solution.

PLEASE HELP!

 

Specs-

CPU- Core2Duo E7500 2.93 Ghz.

RAM- 4GB DDR2.

GPU- Nvidia GTX 650 Ti - Windforce 2GB OC edition.

Why didn't you answer the questions I asked you? Do you have any mods installed? Where do you have your game from? Are you playing with the DVD in your Drive?

Besides, do you have Internet Explorer installed and working on your system? It often occurred that because of a not working Internet Explorer, the game might not work as well. Make sure you have Internet Explorer and it works. Also, try to remove your game settings.

No.i don't have any mods.

I am running the game via DVD.

I bought the game from a local retailer.

IE 9 is installed and working.

Removing the game settings didn't work.

 

Thanks for your help!

Well, you could try installing .NET Framework 3.5, or maybe re-install the game, if you still have the discs.

Both of the options didn't help.

 

I also started the normal GTA IV,same problem. But this time it shows the GTA IV logo and then crashes.

Also,is there a way to block this message i.e "- App has stopped working"?

 

Windows 7 really pisses me off with this thing,everything that does not respond for 2 seconds is closed by it confused.gif

Try to install xliveless, it might help you. Watch out though, all your save files are moved once you install it, here:

GTA IV - C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames

GTA TBoGT - C:\Users\<username>\My Documents\Rockstar Games\Rockstar Games\TBoGT\savegames

GTA TLaD - C:\Users\<username>\My Documents\Rockstar Games\Rockstar Games\TLAD\savegames

 

In case you want to install new save files to any of these games, make sure to use this new location for each one accordingly.

I'm having the same issue, but I don't even get the game installed.

 

When I put the disc on my drive and run the setup, I get a message saying that "Windows XP SP3 or Windows Vista SP1 are required to run GTA EFLC".

 

I also tried to install the game with and without Social Club, but didn't have success.

 

I have Windows 7 Ultimate, .NET Framework 4.5, latest Games For Windows- Live, GTA IV with the 1.0.7.0 patch installed and everything always ran perfectly, I'm just having problems to install the EFLC.

 

Does anybody know what to do?

 

My system:

 

- Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3

- Core i5 2500K

- 4GB Corsair XMS3

- Radeon HD 5850

- Windows 7 Ultimate

 

 

 

Thanks!

This is one strange error, and I couldn't find many fixes. Have you tried running the setup in all compatibility modes? What about trying to run the installation as admin. Not sure if it helps, but good luck anyway.

I already tried to run the game in XP SP3 and Vista SP1 compatibility modes, but didn't work.

 

I'll try to run it as administrator.

 

 

 

Thanks!

Nothing yet, run as administrator didn't work.

 

I printed the screen that appears to me:

Problem solved.

 

I got another DVD drive and finally installed the game. Now it's running properly.

Actually,I was using Xliveless to run my save games as once I had a BSOD and my save file got corrupt.

So,this isn't a solution for me. I removed the xlive.dll and then installed the latest GFWL,but still it didn't help.

Someone in Steam community forums has hinted IE9 as the root cause of this problem.

 

I'm not sure if this will help but it won't hurt trying. Open IE9 and select Option>Advance tab and uncheck "Check for server certificate revocation" if it has already been ticked.

 

Now, install Windows LIVE Sign-in Assistant and try re-installing GFWL.

 

Run it as administrator and see if it fixes the problem.
