I had installed gta4 on my pc. I installed this game three or four times before and that time I was able to play the game. But now whenever I start the game through social club, it showed the message that the game was failed to start due to parental control. The main problem is that even when I turned the parental control off, the game is not starting. And I'm dying to play the game. Is it due to some file is corrupt, because when I installed the game this time, the installation said that some file is missing, but the installation continued. I am surprised coz that DVD is writable and was not treated badly so that it could be damaged. Please help me out. Pleeeeeaaaassssse........ :cry:

well if the installation says some file is missing that means it doesnt work. create another account on windows and make adminstrator and then install gta on that and see if it works

It doesn't worked dude. Someone said that newer patches don't need social club to run. From where I can get it and of what space it is and can I download it free? You can also give me some other suggestions apart from this.

I installed the new patch but now when I run GTA IV, it pops up a message that the ordinal 5633 is missing. Im using windows 8 enterprice right now. Is this problem due to the O.S.

No other info?Usually it says something like - ''the ordinal xxxx could not be located in the dynamic library xxxx.dll''.Are you getting something like that?

Have you installed Games for windows live?

Well,in windows vista/7,in Control Panel,there is an option titled ''problem reports and solutions''.There you can find the event log for any game crashes.But I don't know if Windows 8 has the same options.....

Hey i have some suggestion for you. Try to install game without any antivirus. i Know its dangerous but if you would install the game without any antivirus no file would be missing and you will be able to play the game
Just give it a try. I also did the same when it wont run and say that some file missing

Maybe because you have a pirated copy? "I am surprised coz that DVD is writable

and

was not treated badly so that it could be damaged. Please help me out."

Maybe you did! I was talking about the starter of this thread, he surely has a Pirated Copy, and I cannot help him, and neither will you! As you purchased it; please explain your problem.

Worse; you will need to make another Games For Windows Live account and do all the Gamer Tag linking all over again.
