Why would you want to use it on new complete edition? It's basically the same game.

This method is perfect solution for owners of standalone IV and EFLC.

Hey, so there's an issue for me.

 

When I launch GTA IV, (with the DLC's) it skips the loading screen and the rockstar logo screen. It directly starts GTA IV from the first mission (Bellic Cousins or something) without me clicking anything. When I try to start a new game by pressing ESC ingame, and selecting TBoGT/TLAD from the "start a new game" option, the game keeps on loading forever.

 

Also, I'm using compatibility (Windows 7 Compatibility option). Any solutions?

I eventually got to the menu screen, where you can select the DLC and the main game, but still, the game keeps on loading forever except GTA IV, which works. The DLC's do not load. (Patch 1.0.8.0/1.1.3.0)

 

 

Video evidence (Sorry for aspect ratio)

Whenever I try to use the compatibility for Windows Vista or  XP, the game just shows a error message: SecuLauncher failed to start application. [2000]

So, this guide is useless for me.

to the people having issues, it could stem from how the install guide was written, i had the issues not being able to get the expansions to work as DLC, but after rereading I realized I was placing my DLC files incorrectly:

 

  1. Make a "DLC" folder in your GTA4 root folder, in the "DLC" folder make a folder with the name "TLAD" and then inside that folder, make another folder named "content". Folder structure should look: "Grand Theft Auto IV\GTAIV\DLC\TLAD\content."
  2. Copy the TLAD folder from EFLC/TL&D to the content folder.
  3. In the downloaded archive provided in the OP, merge the files from the "content" folder in the archive to the "content" folder your created in "Grand Theft Auto IV\GTAIV\DLC\TLAD\content."
  4. Copy the 3 files (content.cat, content.xbx, .png image) from the archive to "Grand Theft Auto IV\GTAIV\DLC\TLAD\"
  5. Copy the files from the archives ("GTA IV tool" and "xliveless") to your "Grand Theft Auto IV\GTAIV" folder.

 

Green = GTA4 folder

Red = ELFC folder

Purple = Downloaded archive "DLC_files"

 

This is how your folder structure should look like https://imgur.com/a/tosZT

 

Edit: I also installed the regedit provided in this post

The file structure looks wierd. There's the TLAD folder, yes? Inside it contains "content" folder, content.cat, content.xbx, E2_marketplace_logo2_64_24.png.

 

But, inside the "content" folder, you have the same files that you had: namely content.cat, content.xbx, E2_marketplace_logo2_64_24.png, but of DIFFERENT sizes. Refer to this image provided by ComedyInK, second image: https://imgur.com/a/tosZT. These files are not included in the DLC folder provided by Tomas. I believe this is the reason why it isn't working for some, including me.

Please update your DLC download link
Your link to the DLC file has some(almost many) missing files and is not making the vanilla IV to launch the menu. Please update your DLC files link

Files are ok, I have installed this mod successfully ~2 weeks ago.

I have the complete edition from Steam and I downgraded GTA 4 to 1.0.7.0 so I can install mods. I don't have access to the DLC anymore and I would like to play them with the mods I have installed. Will this method work so I can play EFLC?
