Installing GTA 5 now impossible

Question

gnilley

So a while back my hard drive, which had Steam and GTA and all the files associated with it died on me, and after getting a new one and setting everything back up the only thing that now won't work is GTA. I've installed it multiple times only for it to give me issues before even loading. The furthest I get is the option to load straight into online or to start from singleplayer on a clean install, which afterwards it tries to install Social Club and gives me "error code 3" and the generic, useless link to the social club page. Trying to download THAT also gives me an error, which is just "gta 5 is not on your computer." I haven't been able to find even a single instance of this anywhere else; being trapped in this loop of unfixable patchers and obscure errors. Not to mention the manual launcher downloads cannot be changed to where they exactly download and are stuck trying to write themselves onto a drive that hasn't been connected to my computer in +6 months. Am I actually sh*t out of luck?

 

I've tried multiple different fixes which all have no effect whatsoever - I can't keep uninstalling and reinstalling either because that is a 3 hour minimum process every time. Does anybody have the slightest clue how to fix this? The only problem I've thought so far is MAYBE the drive I've got steam and GTA on now is a different letter, and that is somehow munting it up, but I'm not going to change the drive letter back to the dead hard drive's letter and possibly mess up a ton of other files in the process.

So, you download the game via Steam!? I don't get it.

You have new hdd, try everything from the the beginning and clean, delete everything about gta v on your new hdd download the game again like a fresh purchase, activated it and play it.

That's the jist; new HDD, no old rockstar/gta stuff, fresh install, and yet it still somehow managed to mess itself up with an error that I can't find anybody else having.
