Unable to download GTA V properly from Rockstar Launcher

Question

Noiir7
Posted (edited)

Hello everyone, I have a problem with the Rockstar Games Launcher. Hope you can help me!

 

While downloading GTA V (I own it through the launcher and am downloading it with that), a sort of connection error keeps showing every couple of minutes or so.

I start the download and it's downloading as it should be, then after 5 minutes or so, a red banner with an error message ("GTA V has encountered an error.") shows and the download suddenly stops.

I have to press the "Retry" button everytime this happens because the download does not restart automatically and then the download keeps going on but this way it's impossible to download the game properly.

I don't know what is going on. I admit I have a sh*tty internet connection, but I have installed the game before and without launcher (just the Social Club thing that was present before the Launcher debut).

In the past i've used command lines such as -verify and -noChunkedDownload and it would work, because it gave me this kind of problem then too, but now with the new launcher I don't know what to do and the

command lines seem to not work for me. I have already started the download with ~73 GB, because I had an older installation and I verified it. I am trying to download the rest but as I wrote it's kind of impossible this way.

I have already opened the Rocktar Support suggested ports in my router, restarted it many times, tried to open the launcher with administrator privileges, tried to limit the download bandwidth, but still no luck.

I have opened a support ticket on Rockstar Support but still no answer.

If someone can help me, it would be appreciated! Thank you in advance!

Hey there.

 

I am having the exact same problem myself with an update they put out either for the launcher or the game. Everytime i launch the launcher the update starts and just as it knears the end of the update it stops and an error message appears. I have tried a number of things to fix this problem but they just dont work. I came to this forum looking for answers myself but it looks as though you are having the same amount of luck as i am having which is basicly coming to a dead end when it comes to fixing the problem. Can anyone please help!

 

Thank You.

Hey there, yeah I know. I fixed my problem by myself though. I had to smash the Retry button everytime but somehow I managed to download the update. However, some days ago I had an issue just like yours because of a new small update. I fixed by canceling the update, closing the launcher and then by deleting the GTA5.exe in the installation folder. I restarted the launcher and it redownloaded the whole update again (it was around ~75MB) and at the end it worked.
