    Hi Collin,

    Have you tried installing use compatibility mode?

    Try setting the compatibility to Windows 7.

    More information on how to use this here:

    Compatibility Mode - Use in Windows 8

    this is solution i keep reading: have you tried running in Vista service pack 2?
    GTA IV Does Work With Windows 8 and 8.1

    To get it to work: 1. Go to the cd and GTAIV folder and right click setup and click properties.
    2. Click compatibility tab and run in compatibility mode with vista service pack 2.
    3. Go through the installation as you would normally.
    4.When done you must download a patch fromGrand Theft Auto IV Patch 7 -- Title Update v. 1.0.7.0 (English) / 1.0.6.1 (Russian) / 1.0.5.2 (Japanese) ? Rockstar Support-
    5.When done with that, download windows for live client
    Download the Games for Windows Client | PC Games Client - Xbox.com
    6. when down with that your ready to start the game and it will ask for the cd product code. enter and it should work.


    Also make sure you drivers are up to date.

    Cheers,
    Harry

    That did the trick. And just for future reference for other people. After you install the "Patch 7 1.0.7.0" Download xLiveless at: Xliveless

    This should get Grand Theft Auto IV working.

    Thank you Harry

    My computer (see specs) almost plays this game well.

    It will rock hardcore with it once I upgrade cpu to Core2 x6800 Extreme (best I can put). That CPU benchmarks about 3 times as fast as what I have now.

    I'll likely get one used off EBAY.

    Right now, it plays just about anything else well.

    win 8.1


    I borrow this thread as I have similar problem, When I install gta in steam as the game requires Visual C + + 2005 but get an error message During The Installation


    Error 1935 An error occurred During The installation of assembly 'Microsoft VC80 CRT.type = "win32." Version = "8.0.50727.4053". Public Key Token = "1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b." Processor architecture = "amd64"


    And the game will not start without this package, I have tried downloading various 2005 + + + none of the versions have worked, I've also tried to install in safe mode but it did not work either. I have only 2008 + + + and 2010 + + + on the PC, I've tried to delete them and reinstall but 2005 sp1 does not work get the same error message, does anyone have a solution to this, searched the whole Google but there is not much information just for us who use windows 8.1, Help appreciated I'm getting crazy.
