If you're already doing that I'd say the only possibility that remains is that you've installed the wrong version of either scripthook or xliveless (or both).
No need to downgrade though, the latest patch should work fine
I'm using LaunchIV and xlive is the correct version!
Also, I downgraded due to mods working better on 188.8.131.52!
Had to delete settings folder in:
%localappdata%\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\settings
