It has been happening to me lately, hopefully someone can help with the problem.. or Rockstar come up with another patch to address the issue.
Are you having the same problem?

Uninstall GTA. Run the installer 'setup.exe' in compatibility mode (Windows XP SP3)

Try installing DirectX SDK and updating your graphics adapter.

download and install this patch (run the .exe file)
http://support.rockstargames.com/ent...0-5-2-japanese

After installing the patch you should have a folder in your steam directory called RGSC.
C:>program files>steam>steamapps>common>grand theft auto iv>GTAIV>RGSC

now do this as follows.

1)exit steam totally.

2)run the RGSClauncher.exe in the RGSC folder, you will be prompted to log into social club (leave this log in screen do not do anything to it.)

3)go back to your GTAIV folder and run LaunchGTAIV.exe (WITH THE SOCIAL CLUB STILL OPEN)

4)now press play (offline) on the social club log in, GTAIV will start.
