How to Fix GTA V Launcher Stopped Work Error

GTA V, the acronym for Grand Theft Auto 5, is an action-adventure game with a first release scheduled for 2013. It can be played in third person or first person, with the Single Story and Open World modes. Although it is a reliable game, sometimes there can be problems. In this last issue of our bug fix-series we look at the GTA V-starter error.

How can I fix the Grand Theft Auto V Launcher bug?

Before following the recommended troubleshooting steps for this particular problem, I recommend that you first try restarting your computer. This way you can update your operating system, remove damaged temporary data and solve most software problems quite efficiently.

Several factors can cause this problem, from a driver problem to a corrupt game file. The following steps need to be taken to solve this problem.

Relocation of social club

The first thing we need to do in this case is reinstall the Social Club. This is the software that allows you to create an online configuration for multiple users.

  • Make sure you are logged in with an administrator account, as you cannot delete programs with other account permissions.
  • Click on the Start menu and open the Settings application.
  • Click on the Apps button to open a list of all programs installed on your computer.
  • Find the Rockstar Games Social Club item in the list and click on it once. Click on the Delete button above the list and confirm the dialog boxes that appear. Follow the on-screen instructions to remove the Social Club.
  • Once the uninstall process is complete, make sure that all remaining files and folders have been deleted. The right paths to these folders depend on whether the game is on steam or not and where you have chosen to delete it, but you can always find them.
  • Search each of the folders below for a folder called Social Club. Default directory for installation without using the command line : C: USERNAME DOCUMENTS C: Program files C: Program files C: Rockstar Games
  • Go to https://support.rockstargames.com/articles/200146066/Manual-Link-to-Social-Club-Application-Download.
  • Download and install the Social Club application.

Check if there is still an error in the GTAV startup system.

Starting a game in compatibility mode

Sometimes a game cannot be run with the latest Windows update, so you should try running it in compatibility mode.

  • Start the steam by double-clicking his badge.
  • In the Steam window, click on the Library tab, locate the Library tab at the top of the window and search for GTA V in the list of games you have in your library.
  • Right-click on the entries and select Properties. Click on the Local Files tab and select Browse Local Files.
  • Right-click the GTAV.exe file in the folder and select Properties. In the Properties window, click the Compatibility tab and check the box next to Run this program in compatibility mode for. Select Windows 7 (recommended) from the menu that appears.
  • In the same window, in the chapter Settings, check the input Run this program as administrator.
  • Apply the changes you’ve made and try to restart the game.

Make sure the problem persists.

Checking the integrity of the game file

One of the factors that can cause this problem is a corrupt game file. If this is the cause of the problem, you should try checking the integrity of the Steam game file.

  • Start the steam by double-clicking his badge.
  • In the Steam window, click on the Library tab, locate the Library tab at the top of the window and search for GTA V in the list of games you have in your library.
  • Right-click on the entries and select Properties. Go to the Local Files tab and click the Check Game File Integrity button.
  • Wait until the process is complete.
  • Restart the game.

Check if there is still an error in the GTAV startup system.

  • Open the file explorer on your computer and go to the Document section by clicking on the entry in the left navigation bar.
  • Find a folder called Rockstar Games and double click on it to open it.
  • Open the GTA V folder located there and search for the file named settings.xml. Right-click on the file and select Open with >> Edit Notepad from the context menu.
  • Use the key combination Ctrl + F or press the Edit key on the main menu and select Search from the drop-down menu to open the search window.
