I've been playing Grand Theft Auto IV on PC for months now. It's a great game and all, but lately error messages have been appearing saying "SecuROM Launcher has stopped working" when I tried to start the game. I tried everything. I uninstalled the game and reinstalled it. It worked fine without the Simple Native Trainer. It was when I installed the Simple Native Trainer that it started crashing on start up again. What's interesting is that I downloaded a bypass for the SecuROM Launcher and it worked fine without the Simple Native Trainer, but when I installed the Simple Native Trainer an error message appeared when I started the game saying "Grand Theft Auto IV has stopped working".
I just don't know what to do at this point. I'm out of options.
I am using an Acer Aspire 5349 laptop for the task. Here's the specs:
Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) B815 @ 1.60GHz 1.60 GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 6.00 GB (5.85 GB usable)
System type: 64-bit Operating System
Graphics card: Intel(R) HD Graphics Family
Video memory: 1760 MB
I also shut down every process not needed for gaming, thanks to Razer Game Booster. I also use the following commandline.txt parameters:
-DX11 / high
Am I going to have to build a gaming PC or do I need to modify the commandline.txt file or anything?
