( BTW: After I re-installed my game, I was able run the game with GTAIV.exe and if I update my game to patch 18.104.22.168 and launch the game with LaunchGTAIV.exe as an administrator or just normal it gives me the ''SecuROM Launcher has stopped working'' error.
I've been running GTA IV on Windows 7 Build 7000 successfully for over a week. A lot faster, and more stable than I'd ever experienced on XP or even Vista before. Now the problem isn't really with the game itself, but with SecuRom Launcher. As soon as I try to launch, I get an error message, "SecuRom Launcher has stopped working. Windows is looking for a solution.". I have a retail copy, no cracks. I used xLiveWrapper, but after that it was still running well, So I don't think that'd be the source of the problem.
Seems I could get it working again. Even though it's original, I have to use a SecuROM bypasser... I can't help it. Not my fault, that it stopped working.. Only strange thing is, that it went wrong suddently. Before yesterday evening, it worked fine. I installed nothing before the happening..maybe the aliens did something, while I was in the kitchen...
I have the same problem even though I have the original GTA IV disc. After some time of playing, it was about 2 weeks, it has stopped working. I tried to run the game several times, and it started. But now, I can not open the game at all. I think that that is some problem with Windows 7. 2b1af7f3a8
