I'm running GTA iv perfectly on win8, so that can't be the problem.

Have you got any more details? and your pc specs?

I run GTA 4 on Windows 8 as well, no problems from launching it (aside from occasional crashes).

 

Make sure you have the newest DirectX and possibly Nvidia Drivers.

I have 8.1 and it works. I just checked compatiblity mode on all the .exe files in GTA4 and Installer folder and more.

An installed some of the stuff from the install folder.

 

Do you have sound normally? Or do you have the N version?

I liked Win 8 but I didn't want to get rid of my beloved Win 7. So I installed in a way that I can choose between Win 7 and Win 8 upon booting. Anyways back to the topic, GTA IV works perfectly fine in my Win7 and it is working fine in Win 8 as well after I updated my graphics card drivers.

Hello guys, I have bought gta iv for pc win 8 toshiba and it quickly opened cmd with press any button to continue and then it closes, I went online and looked for fixes and changes the compatibility and changed it to all the options, none worked. I I am updating my driver soon and so if that doesn't fix it i will take it back to the shop and see what they can do to help.

Try to install the Visual 2005 C++ as well as the 2008 one. You should reinstall directx9 from Windows website. Install the latest GFWL update. Check the "Tweak" section for more details.
