					How To: Fix SecuLauncher: Failed to start application [2000] GTAIV PC
Error.
GTAIV Was working fine on my 32-Bit XP harddrive, but once I tryed 64-
Bit, all hell broke loose. So if you're getting the error "Seculauncher:
Failed to start application [2000], this may help you.

Step 1: Install GTAIV and get the error stated above.

Step 2: Navigate to Control panel > Add/Remove Programs.

Step 3: Locate Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable, more
importantly, one's that say something with x64 on end. Apparently this
game runs on 32-bit? Im not completely sure, but 32-bit installer comes
in the downloaded package once GTAIV is installed.

Step 4: Uninstall any Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable items listed in
Add/Remove programs.

Step 5: Navigate to the GTAIV main folder, and locate the installers
folder. (In my case its Program files > Steam > Steamapps >Common > Grand
theft auto iv > installers. People using a disk it would be to right
click on your DVD/CD drive in My computer, click explore, and find the
folder named "Redistributable"

Step 6: Find "vcredist_x86.exe"

Step 7: Run this installer, complete the installation.

Step 8: Check Add/Remove programs to see that the new 2005 C++ was
installed.

Step 9: Attempt to load GTAIV once more, through Social club Play button.
This is as far as I got before I got a new error, the above got rid of my
seculaunch error though.

Step 10: If you're receiving a new error titled "GTAIV FATAL ERROR:
RMN40", continue these steps, if not, play the game (Hopefully this
worked for you, I could NOT find a solution until I tryed this
reccomended by "theunknownsd" on gtaforums.com. He was the one who I
found the above solution from, but I figured I would re-do these steps
and post them as many places as I could to help other people in the same
place I was.

Step 11: If you did get the "GTAIV FATAL ERROR: RMN40" after doing the
above, right click on LaunchGTAIV.exe in the main GTAIV folder, and
GTAIV.exe in the main GTAIV folder, and make sure that under the
Compatibility tab that "run this program in compatibility mode for:" is
not checked on all of the launchers. At this point, I got a NEW error
once I solved that one, so if you had the RMN40 error, and unchecking
compatibility mode fixed it, you may have now received the error "GTAIV
FATAL ERROR: WS10", if so continue reading.

Step 12: If you got the "GTAIV FATAL ERROR: WS10", check Add/Remove
programs to make sure you have "Microsoft Games for Windows Live
Redistributable installed, if you do and you still get the error,
uninstall the program at this time.

Step 13: Navigate to Program files > Steam > Steamapps >Common > Grand
theft auto iv > installers >xliveredist.msi (Or the redistributable
folder when exploring the CD for people using a CD.

Step 14: WS10 error supposibly has to do with windows live, so you want
to uninstall and reinstall if you already had it, or install it from the
folders in step 13 if you didnt have it at all. After uninstalling run
xliveredist.msi (Or if your just now installing) and complete the setup.


Step 15: If you still get the WS10 error, download the following GTAIV
Patch (Normally downloaded through social club, but at the time it
wouldnt let me login to social club, this way is probably faster anyway)
http://files.filefront.com/GTAIV+PC+.../fileinfo.html

Step 16: Unzip the GTAIV_PC_Patch folder, and run the Setup.exe

Step 17: Hopefully now, when you launch GTA through social club, it will
load up with no errors. In my case, all of the above got me up and going,
there needs to be a hardfix patch for all this BS but I took the time to
write this up since I was so mad over it
