i had purchased gta iv yesterday and installed it, with the social club and whatever bs you need to install with it. i have 7 32bit and i cant get the game to start up. when i double click the launcher a command prompt briefly comes and goes then fatal error rmn40. i tried to launch it in compatibility mode for xp sp2/ and 3 and with that it say fatal error ws10.
very infuriating when i cant find anything to fix this issue, besides people saying to run it in xp2 or xp3.wont work for me. i am not a big modding person just want to enjoy the game first then worry about adding stuff

Is that a legal game copy? Do you have some disk imaging software installed, like daemon tools? Have you installed this GFWL update? There should be a VC++ libraries package on the game disk, file named vc_setup.exe or something of the likes. Make sure you install it, Securom needs those to run properly.
Uninstall daemon tools. This link is working for me http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=98609 VC++ libraries are just what I said: a vc_setup.exe file (or some similar file name) that can be found on the game disk. Probably in the redistributables folder on disk 1.
