Gta4 not running

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:

More about gta4 running
  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  5. Yup. I installed Games for windows live
  6. Any other info about the error?Check the event log,if it's there.
  7. What is it??? And how can I check.
  8. 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.....
  9. 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
  10. 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."
  11. please close the thread if you have got the answer
  12. i have had the same problem but mine is from windows live side
  13. OP has a pirated copy.....Sorry cant help you out with that......GO GET AN ORIGINAL COPY (i guess you live in INDIA) from FLIPKART.COM . It's there for only rs 300. :)

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