GTA 4 - Fatal Error Resc10

When running Grand Theft Auto 4 on Windows 7, or Windows 10 you may experience a Fatal Error Resc 10. GTA 4 was not originally designed to run on Windows 7, or 10. To get rid of this error, GTA 4 can be run in compatibility mode for either the Windows Vista operating system or Windows XP. There is an option in GTA 4 menu to run the game in compatibility mode. If the Fatal Error Resc 10 problem persists, the graphics settings of the system should be checked to ensure that they are not set to high a value.

How To Access Compatibility Mode

To solve the Fatal Error Resc10, try running GTA 4 in compatibility mode for either Windows Vista or XP because originally, the game isn't formatted to run on Windows 7 or 10. </ital>
  • Right click on your GTA 4 or rgsc shortcut.
  • Click properties, then click compatibility.

There should be a drop-down box with run in compatibility mode.
  • Check the little box beside it and choose either Windows Vista or XP.

After that, try to run the game. If you still can't, open the game, but don't load it.

Check to see if your graphics settings are too high. If the game still doesn't work, check with Rockstar Games, or your computer manufacturer.
