Windows 7: How to get GTA IV working in windows 7 64-bit.

How to get GTA IV working in windows 7 64-bit.

Ok, I had this issue before, but I would love to share with y'all on how to fix the issue. This issue is for people who can't seem to figure out why after signing into rockstar social club, that the game won't pop up to start the game.

Make sure you have installed all windows updates to where windows update says "There are no more updates available". You should be with Service Pack 1 after installing updates.

There's 2 folder in the C drive labeled "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)". The thing with the game is that it installs it into Program Files (x86). To keep from it doing that, here's what you need to do.

Go to your C drive and go into "Program Files". Create a new folder in there called "Rockstar Games".

Open up the installation of the game disk or downloaded ones that you are using the crack files for. When it asks for the destination folder of the installation, edit it and make it install into "C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\" (Have to do that for both social club and the original game).

After installation is complete, install the patch V1.0.7.0. It will install it into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\". Once patch is complete, copy contents from that folder that was said in this paragraph into C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\.

After that, launch the application and make sure you put in the key and sign into the social club. The game should launch just like mine did.

This is the official tutorial of how to get GTA IV to run on windows 7 64-bit.

Thanks for sharing.

I was curious if the Program Files folders may possibly be a part of it. Apparently it was.

I always suggest just having a folder for games somewhere, and you just gave me another reason to keep recommending that very thing

I mentioned it in my last post of your other thread.
