Not working on windows 8
I can get into the game menu but when I click Start I see the loading screen for 3 seconds and then it crashes to desktop.

well there's your problem.

Seriously speaking, though. Try going to the EFLC foder (which should be in your steam folder, of course) right click the .exe file that launches the game, click on properties and go to the "compatibility" tab, check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and choose Windows 7 (if possible). And then press OK and try to run the game.
That's the only thing I can think of. Hope it helps.

It is no problem GTA4 is working perfect under 8. You just have to install Games for Windows Live.

Yep I realized that after trying to open the start menu for the 500th time and ending up in Metro UI again. Got win7 again and happily playing gta iv :D

Delete GFWL market place and Microsoft games for windows - Live redisturtable from Control Pannel/Programs and Features. then go to program x86steam/steam apps/common/ where your gtafile is. go to Gta IV then Installers then gfwlivesetup.exe 265,506kb run that then it should say a capatabilituy problem go to check online. go to update page download update launch game and it worked for me

I can load up the launcher screen for the game where I choose whether I want to play Lost and Damned or TBOGT and when I click onLost and Damned, it never loads up it just sticks on the loading screen. What's happened?

im having the same problem - can play gta4 and TBOGT just fine, but wont run Lost and Damned? gets to loading screen then crashes back to desktop (doesnt start to create new game) - i added the '-nomemrestrict -norestrictions' startup options (because i have 3gb graphics') and also tried reinstalling Games for Windows Live too

sent a ticket to rockstar http://support.rockstargames.com/tickets/600862 - had to attach a dxdiag txt as requested

any ideas??
