GTA4 PC Problems

There are problems being reported on the Steam Users' Forums by users trying to run the just-released Windows edition of Grand Theft Auto IV, leading to a couple of sticky threads on a Missing Textures Issue and simply How To Get GTAIV Running. Also, Kotaku notes a considerable outcry over problems with the game on the GTAForums and GTAGaming. There's a statement from Rockstar on GTAGaming saying: "We are aware that a small number of fans are having problems running GTA IV on their PC’s and we would like to assure them we are working to help solve these as quickly as possible." In the meantime they recommend contacting technical support through phone numbers in the user manual and consulting rockstargames.com/support/ for helpful information. This support information includes a graphics settings explanation and details on all of the game's error codes.
