GTA IV hangs on installation?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I bought GTA IV when it came out for PC a couple years ago. Installed fine the first time around, finished the game, etc.

Then after a few months I decided to uninstall GTA. Few months later I wanted to play GTA again now that I upgraded my computer, I wanted to see how my new hardware would handle the game. So I popped the disk in, social club installed, but the game itself stopped installing after like 30%... in fact, the entire installation process just stopped responding. I tried everything--compatibility mode, run as administrator... I think one of the files on the disk might be corrupt or missing, which might be a reason why the installation just hangs at a certain point.

If I email Rockstar and provide them with the appropriate information, would they send me replacement disks?

All this talk over GTA V makes me want GTA IV action in my life...

If your DVD is scratched, then buy it again. It's pretty cheap now. Try installing to a different HDD and see if that works.
