So I have a problem. Every time I start up GTA:IV it crashes the update pop-up and gives me this message: I KNOW this is a vague message, and the only reason I'm asking for help here is I thought someone might have had this too and know what to do. It crashes straight after I click launch game and the loading box disappears. So, any ideas?

    I had a similar problem with updating it from windows live so I had to manually download the patch and update it from that but i don't know if it will be the same for Steam.

    Steam and no, I can get into game I just can't do much for too long before being cast into my desktop alone, hungry, and naked.

    Have you tried to run the game with the launchgtaiv.exe in the steam folder instead of the Rockstart Social...thing.

    Yeah I tried all 5 or 6 game start icons that were in various steam folders - tried every one I could find. In fact I ran every runnable app in all of the GTA folders in the hope that something needed doing manually.. to no avail.

    I would be nice if I even got an error code or something to tell me what's going wrong.. but all I get is OH SHIT IT FAILED LOL PWNT. Thanks a lot Rockstar!
