    GTA IV not working

    Hey guys,
    Just wondering if anyone else has had any problems running GTA IV through steam with windows 8?
    I run it and log in to rockstar then it just goes back to my desktop. I checked my processes and it's not running whilst not appearing like Steam itself can sometimes do where you have to kill the process.
    Any Ideas?

    I have to right-click GTA4 in steam and select properties. Than go to local files tab and choose browse local files, than select GTAIV folder. Right-click LaunchGTAIV.exe and run it as administrator.

    This is mildly annoying but seems to work.

    Post back if it works for you.

    Another way beside what thedrumkit said is if that doesn't work for you then either restart steam or check the intergrity of the game files
