Rockstar Issues Install Fix For Grand Theft Auto 5 On PC

Grand Theft Auto V released on PC this week and had some people had some issues installing and playing the game. If you were one of those people Rockstar has issues a fix for the PC, follow the steps below they have released that should fix the problem. If you still run into an issue you can always open up a support ticket with Rockstar.

“If you created a new Windows account to play before the fix, you will be able to continue playing GTAV on your original Windows account by following the steps below,” Rockstar explained earlier today.

Log in to the new account you created, and copy your game data to a folder that can be accessed from both user accounts:
Go to the “My DocumentsRockstar Games” and copy the “GTA V” folder
Go to your root directory (e.g. C:) and paste the folder there.
Log out of the temporary account, and log back in to your original Windows account.
Copy your game data into your original account:
Go to your root directory (e.g. C:) and copy the “GTA V” folder you pasted earlier.
Go to the “My Documents” folder
If you already have a “Rockstar Games” folder:
Click into the “Rockstar Games” folder and paste the “GTA V” folder there.
If you do not have a “Rockstar Games” folder:
Create a new folder in this directory called “Rockstar Games” (without the quotes).
Paste the “GTA V” folder in this new directory.

A different process involving downloading and running a file is required for anyone using a native Korean, Japanese, or Chinese version of Windows, and additional information for anyone using different versions of Windows is available on Rockstar’s blog.
