  • Make sure you aren't using a crack - We don't support cracks
  • Update GTA IV to 1.0.7.0 (the latest version of the game, or 1.1.2.0 for EFLC) - This sometimes fixes a wide variety of issues
  • Make sure that you run the game as an administrator.
  • Make sure that your GTA IV root folder (and every subdirectory) is not set to "read-only"
  • Ensure that FirstResponse.net.dll is in the SCRIPTS folder and that AdvancedHook.dll is in the GTA IV ROOT folder.
  • Ensure that ScriptHook.dll, ScriptHookDotNet.asi and Dsound.dll OR Xlive.dll are in the GTA IV ROOT folder
  • Ensure that there is a folder titled 'LCPDFR' in the SCRIPTS folder.
  • Check that all the above files exist, if they do not, reinstall LCPDFR with the automatic installation.
  • Ensure that you are using up to date versions of every LCPDFR dependency and LCPDFR itself.
  • Install these: http://www.microsoft...9f-b21f31ab88b7http://www.microsoft...&displaylang=en
  • Run a diagnostic report (found here:  title="">http://www.lcpdfr.co...agnostics-tool/) which will point any errors it can find and will be used later on if you need to post a topic.

PS: Instead of bumping, you can just edit your post instead :)

Are you running the game and the installer as administrator? It may solve many issues with the game. 

Sure am bro!

Your computer is kind of weak for gaming. Laptops are not recommended for GTA IV. 

But still it should be able to run it Right?

Well, as the game behaves right now, no. You should invest in a better computer. Try reinstall the game and apply the latest patch again. After that, I am out of advice.

How about trying to buy it on steam would that be any diffrent?

 

---------------------------

 

Uninstalled it and then reinstalled it again. Now I Can Get Back to the loading of the characters but it goes on and on. Its a loop.

Ill then check task manager. and it says not responding. ;(

Create text file called commandline in your GTA IV folder and in that text file type in -norestrictions.

Did that, Same Issue.

I think your computer is destined to fail or something... This is a weird issue. 

Ikr might as well kill it.

 

Could anyone help over team viewer?

Right click on GTAIV.exe, select properties, compatibility tab, check 'Run this program in compatiblity mode for Windows7' and uncheck 'Run this program as an administrator', launch the game.

Did that now instead of it going though loading the charaters it just crashs.

 

I guess thats a step further ;)

 

Thanks for your help so far.
