Grand Theft Auto IV

What is Grand Theft Auto IV?

Grand Theft Auto IV is an open world action-adventure video game published by Rockstar Games. Quite like its predecessors, the core gameplay of GTA IV consists of giving the player a large, open world environment in which to move around freely. Gunfights in GTA IV are conducted using a third-person system.


The most common release is 1.0.0013.131, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named GTAIV.exe. The setup package generally installs about 13 files.
