GTA 4 not launching
I have just purchased a new PC with Windows 8 on and no matter what I try I cannot load GTA 4, I click play, click play offline (and tried online as well) no error message just wont launch at all. I have installed GFWL multiple times, updated it, I have tried liveless, I have re-installed GTA 4, ran steam as administrator, check file integrity, graphics drivers are up to date... you name it i've tried it. Nothing works! Any other suggestions would really really help.

Pc spec -
i5 @ 4.1gz
16gb ram
nVidia GTX 680
Windows 8.... So it cant be my pc as my laptop could run it...

The game (including launcher) do not need compatibility mode. They only need anministrator. You need to find the gfwl exe and set it compatible to Windows 7 and run with administrator. Thats it.

Is it GTX 608M? Firewall?

GTX 680 not 608... And it worked with AVG in the past, just made an exception in the firewall, still no luck.

Try running the gfwl and log in. Without closing it, run gta 4.
