    If you get this awesome screen with GTA5 too. Here is a fix.
    Probably one or more files from your game download is corrupted.

    To check it use WinMD5Free utility.

    WinMD5Free ultility

    Just drag and drop files one by one on it.
    Check if sum matches value from this list.

    If it does not match, delete file.
    Repeat for all files, that do not match.
    Run Grand Theft Auto V exe again, Social club will start downloading missing files.

    You can check re-downloaded files just to make sure.

    Or your game should start automatically after download is finished! :)

    Bonus: you can find a complete error log at C:\Users\username\*********\Rockstar Games\GTA V\launcher.log
    If your files are corrupted it looks like.

    For players who want to update their PC with the latest of the componebnts for GTA 5, Rockstar has provided the links below:

    Fix Crash on intro Windows 7

    Rockstar has given a guide on how to deal with the issue by installing the Windows Media Player and completing the game installation on its Support Page:

    1. Open the Control Panel
    2. Click "Programs"
    3. Click "Turn Windows Features On or Off"
    4. In the resulting popup, make sure "Windows Media Player" is checked under the "Media Features" folder:
    5. Click "OK" and wait for Windows Media Player to install

      Hey, did you have steam? and u copied his game to yours? or did you also have non-steam and copy his non-steam to yours ?
    2. Ye1337
      I've been fighting with this so long
    3. Krazeqz
      Ive been messing around with this since launch and can't find anything. lets hope this works
    4. IRazor007
      Here a complete tutorial I did to fix the issue I had:

      - My pc is a desktop with 1 screen connected to my Geforce and a Intel(R) HD Graphics (without a screen)
      - I have the non-steam version of GTA V
      - I am running Windows 7 x64
      - I have installed GTA V on D:\Games\Grand Theft Auto V

      First to be clear what issue I had:
      The Social club launcher started fine, logged in and tried starting GTA5.exe
      The GTA5.exe didn't show anything, no splash, nothing (in Windows task manager I saw the GTA5.exe process, briefly processing and most of the time at 0% CPU).
      After about 15 seconds the Social club launcher reappeared with an error message (Retry and Safe mode didn't work)

      What I did to fix the issue:
      1. I renamed "D:\Games\Grand Theft Auto V" to "D:\Games\Grand Theft Auto V (backup)" to save all the files
      2. I uninstalled GTA V
      3. I uninstalled Rockstar Social club
      4. I downloaded "350.12-desktop-win8-win7-winvista-64bit-international-whql.exe" from
      5. I uninstalled all NVIDIA drivers (and rebooted)
      6. After Windows installs an old NVIDIA driver I started the driver setup.
      a. Custom install and perform a clean installation
      b. The versions you need:
      NVIDIA 3D Vision Controller Driver 349.95
      NVIDIA 3D Vision Driver 350.12
      NVIDIA GeForce Experience
      NVIDIA Graphics Driver 350.12
      NVIDIA HD Audio Driver
      NVIDIA PhysX System Software 9.15.0324
      7. I downloaded and installed C++ 2008 SP1 runtime
      8. I downloaded and installed DirectX
      9. I downloaded the latest version of Rockstar Social club
      a. Club v1.1.5.6 Setup.exe
      b. I installed Rockstar Social club with "Run as administrator"
      10. I installed the GTAV_Setup_Tool.exe with "Run as administrator"
      a. While the Rockstar Social club is starting (before updating) I moved all files from "D:\Games\Grand Theft Auto V (backup)" to "D:\Games\Grand Theft Auto V" except for GTAVLauncher.exe (was in use of course)
      11. After all this the problem still remained, when I copied all files from my brother the game worked
      a. Here the CRC tool comes in handy, with this tool you can check if all your game files are downloaded correctly (so no WinMD5.exe needed anymore).
      b. When all files are correctly downloaded you get a green message "All files are ok."
      If not: all corrupt files you have to delete yourself and restart the game (these files will be redownloaded, if the game still doesn't work recheck your files).
      c. After all my game files where corrected the game starts up fine.

      What didn't work:
      1. Uninstall virus scanner
      2. Disable the Intel(R) HD Graphics
      3. Disable my Geforce
      4. Create a new Windows user without a "." in the name
    5. tim
      im having a similar problem with an error code 255. Steam version
    6. Vynertje
      Thank you for this. The file provided is indeed not corrupted. However, it didn't fix it for me because I have one more corrupted file. (common.rpf)

      Is there a way someone can upload that file?

      Could you by chance be able to upload your common.rpf file? It's the only file in my system that's still corrupted.

      Check todays GTAV update, R* says it fixed launcher problems!

      Hope to see you online soon! :)

      Thanks for the help

      Same problems, will look into the suggestions
    11. IRazor007
      If you delete a file the GTAVLauncher.exe should redownload it.
      The commandline.txt I have contains one line:

      In case the launcher doesn't download the file here my version:
    12. Tamir
      Is the update live yet?
    13. Vynertje
      I couldn't get the launcher to download the correct file itself, all the downloads go through Steam for me which keeps downloading corrupted files. Fingers crossed while trying your file, thanks for your effort!
    14. streampillars
      Thanks, I'm having this issue. I will confirm if swapping the file fixes it.
      --- Double Post Merged, Apr 17, 2015 ---

      Can anyone with the RETAIL updated version (todays ~300 mb / 2 GB patch) upload their x64b.rpf?

      Replacing the x64b.rpf with the retail version did not stop the crashes for me. It still crashes after switching to a throwing weapon, throwing it, getting in the vehicle and then aiming with a gun.

      Found a stupid solution for myself! Change to Directx 10.1!
