    GTA IV, Crashes at launch

    I always come here with problems, sorry for that

    Anyways, I installed Gta IV. The installation seemed to have gone smooth but it doesn't work.

    If I click LaunchGtaIV.exe it loads into a black screen and then crashes.

    (Right click on image and click "open image in new tab" to get a clearer image)
    If I try clicking GTA IV.exe it shows this

    I am so desperate to play this game that I have tried uninstalling and installing like more than 10 times till now, still no result.
    My installed folder of GTA IV is 14.7 GB in size.

    (Right click on image and click "open image in new tab" to get a clearer image)
    This is the folder and its size, in case any file is missing.

    Please help me ASAP, I can't wait to play this game

    That is because you're supposed to launch the game using LaunchGTAIV.exe, not GTAIV.exe.
