Hey guys so I recently picked up gta4. Anywyas when I launch it through steam I get a message saying that windows live does not work with my set up. I can press play offline, but then a message pops up that says

seculauncher: failed to start application. [2000]


I have windows 8 on my computer is that why? I had the same problem with Fallout3, but I finally got that to work. Im not sure how to do it for Gta though, so what can I do?

Find the game's .exe (usually SteamApps/Common/Grand Theft Auto IV/GTAIV/GTAIV.exe) and try setting the compatibility mode to Windows 7.

I'm pretty sure I had the exact same problem.

hmm for some reason I dont have the option for compatibility mode when I go there. If i go to properties of the .exe the tabs are general, digital signature, security, and details.

You have to manually download GFWL for Windows 8. The one that comes with GTAIV doesn't work.

I just tried that but GFWL is not wanting to install. It keeps failing right at the end. I tried this method here
