SO I waited so f*ckING long for this game. It's literally felt like YEARS. I thought, WOW today is the day. I sat there on the forums like the rest of you hyping the release. Everybody hops onto steam and is ready to play.

 

And what do you know? I can't play it. I was stuck on the same social club BULLsh*t this whole day because of my computer's user name.

 

Because of this :C:\Users\leeth_000 because of one character: _

 

I HAVE LITERALLY WAITED FOREVER. And this happens. Other people play the game while I sat here this whole day looking for non existent fixes. I can't believe this whole day went by and I wasn't able to play. I thought I was done waiting.

 

I GUARANTEE Rockstar will not fix this tomorrow or the day after or even in 2 weeks.


BECAUSE OF A f*ckING LINE. A LINE. If that's not bad luck then I don't know what is. Also I want to play this game NOW. So when will there be a fix hmm?

This was already a problem with older games (a friend could not play Dead Rising 3 online, due to special characters in his name). You never encountered any problems before with such a name?

well... For now you need to change your user name to make it work. :-/

I had the same problem with an "ã" in my name.

 

Try to change your my documents folder source.

Create a new folder and do this:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/310147

*when it asks for move all files to the new folder I put "no" and worked fine.

 

Then uninstall your social club and install it again. Here's is the link where I downloaded it.

I hope it works for you.

I did the 1st part. Tried the 2nd part, and it said that all rockstar applications need to be removed BEFORE removing social club. I have already installed GTA 5 a 2nd time, I don't want to do it a 3rd time. Thanks, but it didn't work. This should not even be a problem.

I can't run it because of a 'special character' in my name, but I won't change anything around my Windows username. It's their job to fix it, not mine

 

BTW.. Why has this anything to do with the game anyways, this is ridiculous! :blink:

OP that sucks.

Just wondering, does (space) count as a special character, meaning if my Windows username is John Doe, will that be likely to cause issues with installation of GTA V on PC?

"Oh, I made a username that causes problems, lets blame rockstar and post a pointless rage thread on the forums..."

 

GJ dude..
