Anyone getting this error message? Won't even try to launch. Went to the following rockstar help link which said to launch as admin. The the error doesn't come up but on the 1st splash screen for the game it just crashes. Anyone got around this problem? REALLY don't wana have to re-install!!!

I, and several others, had this problem with GTA IV--in fact it happened today--and one solution was to launch it from the EXE itself. So, I would try that. Ill let you know if I have this problem and that solution works.
Ok managed to fix it for anyone with the same problem. In your steam folder set the game (from properties of the exe file) to run in compatability with vista service pack 2. But then run the game the normal way from steam. If you try and run the exe it will still crash. --- Top 5 games(no order): Metal Gear Solid 4 - Red Dead Redemption - Max Payne 3 - Shadow of the Colossus - GTAIV
Find the game's .exe in the actual computer files. Right click on the .exe-> properties->Compatibility (tab) ->Check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box->select from drop down. --- "I just wasted a bullet. Don't waste your life." -Big Boss
