GTA IV Asilog.txt open by another process


Recommended Posts

Hey, I've been playing this game with Simple Trainer and ScriptHookV using dsound.dll and recently I've been having this issue where asilog.txt prevents GTA IV from opening listing the following error message: "Exeption EFCreateError in Module DSOUND.dll at 000116C5. Cannot creat file *C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto IV\GTAIV\asilog.txt* The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process"


I've deleted this file before launching the game, looked through Task Manager to see a program that could be related to this file, I've restarted my computer to open GTA IV without any other programs being open beforehand and it worked a couple times before it stopped working last night. At this point I'm not sure what causes this.


Any sort of help would be greatly aprecciated.  Thanks in advance.

The solution seems to be simple.

Right click your GTAV shortcut and choose "Run as administrator".

or use GTAVLauncher.exe from the game folder.

Let me know if this helps.
