Grand Theft Auto 4

From wikinotes


The DRM on gta4 malfunctions on win10, rendering you unable to run the game, or login using Games For Windows Live.

I was unable to find a clean solution to this online that worked, so I installed a crack.

proper fix

  • download the latest version of Games for Windows Marketplace Client.
  • login manually


This did not work for me.

xliveless method (inferior)


This will disable multiplayer, and mods

# Download xliveless

# run the game using:
