I've got a problem with GTA IV. This applies to both GTA IV and EFLC, which is the same error for both.
Anyway, I get the following error when I try to launch the game:
Exception EFCreateError in module DSOUND.dll at 000116C5. Cannot create file "C:\Program Files (x86)\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV\asilog.txt". Access is denied.
I read that the problem to fix this is to uncheck read-only/run the game as admin. I tried unchecking the read only box under properties, and I get a pop up saying : You will need to provide administrator permission to change these attributes. Click Continue to complete this operation.
I Click continue, with the little badge icon. It then sets all folders as non-read only. I go back, and it reset itself to read only again, as if it doesn't save the settings.
I tried to run the game as Admin, but there is no icon/option to do that when I right click.
All my games used to work, but after I had to reinstall windows a few days ago, I had to reactivate the games, and now I have this strange problem. I'm on an admin account also. I'm using Windows 7 64 - bit. This is a legit copy of the game I bought off of Gamestop.com.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
