GTA IV FATAL ERROR: DFA did not initialize properly. ERROR
So, I bought this game yesterday and everytime i try to play the main game (not the DLC) it will get to the menu, minmize, then will show this error: GTA 4 FATAL ERROR: DFA did not initialize properly. Please make sure you are using LaunchGTAIV.exe to laucn the game. I tried running it as admin, even did the patches. Nothing seems to work. If anyone has any advice or a fix i would really like the help.

I have just bought it and have the same problem. Have you found any way to solve it?? Thankyou

There was only one way, that, for some odd reason fixes it. That is uninstalling it and wait for a period of time (for me like one or two months, but I did not try regularly) and install it. I have yet to understand why it did that (mostly from a lack of caring and not being into GTA that much).

The best explination i can give for the problem is that it might have to do with a bad download (if that is even possible).

Sorry, if this does not help as much as you want.
