Fatal Error WS10
Right, I bought GTA IV because of the current Steam sale. Downloaded and install it. tried to run it. Got the above error message "Fatal Error WS10." the message said that I should either restart my computer or reinstall the game. Given it is 15 gb and took all night to download I elected to take the former option.
As Nico, I got off the boat and drove to my cousins place. Cut scene started then went black, and stayed black. Hoping this was just long loading times. I rapped a few presents. 10 minutes later, screen still black and the computer was unresponsive to any key commands so I did a hard reset.
When I tried running the game I got the same message, "Fatal Error WS10." This time though nothing is working. With the help of frantic Googling I've tried:
I've googled this problem, and the only thing I can say for certain is that no one seems certain what causes the error. The message "XNetStartup failed - Please re-boot your system and/or re-install the game" suggests it is a gfwl problem. Which is backed up by personal previous experience with gfwl. With Fallout 3 and Street Fighter 4 gfwl would sometimes just not start. This was annoying but at least those games actually started and could be played when that happened.
I know the game should work, which is something. But at this point the only thing I can think of is to get a crack or redownload the game. Neither of which I really want to do.
So any suggestions anyone?
Thank you in advance for any help.
