Google is your friend and if you had googled your error you would've found this...

 

 

But I am going to warn you now... Mixing files like that will end up causing you problems especially during updates.

 

Also just a friendly reminder as you are new here, You are only allowed to bump your thread ONCE every 6 days when there hasn't been an answer or if it falls to the 2nd page as there aren't a lot of questions being asked there is no reason to bump it as of right now the oldest thread is from just less than a month ago.

 

There are folks like myself who pride themselves on coming to these sections every day or every other day to try and help to answer questions but we don't always know the answer so we just won't answer the question it doesn't mean you're being ignored so bumping a topic doesn't help as it only gets in the way and will tend to be ignored by "Helpers"

ive tested it with friends steam account to see it and i noticed all my RGSC game was ok to steam only exes had to be replaced by steam,

easy way to convert RGSC to steam is just let steam start install cancel it and copy over all RGSC game files to steam library folder newly created gta 5 folder and let it verify/fix via install, later if you need them again back up all files that were modified on the date you did this.
