GTA IV won't re-install

Recommended Posts

OK, so a while back I took GTA IV off my laptop, due to it taking up too much space.

After realising today that I had enough space, I tried to reinstall it.

However, all I get is the "You must login to R* Social to play online" so I log in etc, then it just says "PLAY"

So for some reason GTA IV thinks it's still installed on my laptop, even though from what I can see the game is completely wiped off my HDD.

Whenever I click play is says "File Directory could not be located"

I'm completely mind-fucked as to what I can do, any ideas?

Simply deleting the game doesn't uninstall it. Uninstall with your disk or from Control Panel.

Get a proper uninstallation program such as REVO unistaller and try again with that instead. This type of progra, searches the registry and hidden files for leftover content to ensure you get a properly clean cut removal.

Yep, ditto on that. I do own a similar tool myself.
