Failed to launch game. Missing dependency.

  • Hi guys, I am having serious trouble getting Grand Theft Multiplayer to work.

    I own a legitimate copy of GTA 5 on PC, and have a valid Rockstar Social Club account.


    When I try to 'LAUNCH' in GT MP menu, I get the following error message:


    "Missing dependency

    Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x64) is missing. Would you like to download it now?"


    (Please note, that I have already downloaded AND installed this! I keep getting the same error message)


    I have also tried to 'LAUNCH' with GTA 5 already running in the background.
    When I do this, I get the following message:
    "It seems that GTA V is already running. Would you like to forcibly close it, and launch anyways?"


    I click 'Yes' and am then shown the same 'missing dependency' error as described earlier.

    Has anyone had this same problem? I've done some searching on Google, and for the LIFE of me,
    cannot seem to get this thing working. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    p.s. - I am not running ANY antivirus software, and GTA 5 is not blocked by my Firewall. Also, I'm running
    Windows 10 on a functioning PC.

  • i didn't have this problem, but you could try to download the x86 version, maybe it goes away? You will need both x64 and x86 versions of 2013 and 2015.


    If you already have all 4 versions then I don't know why it shows this message.

  • The only file I'm seeing under > Grand Theft Multiplayer\logs\ is one called 'launcher'.
    When I open this .log file, I am shown the following:

  • @aweshtin,


    Those errors tell that you don't have .NET FRAMEWORK installed and others. I recommend you install visual studio since its already included a lot of packages, or you can try download and installs the frameworks one by one:

    https://www.microsoft.com/net/download/framework

    If you install this and it don't works, run windows 10 update. If still don't works, your win 10 have a big problem. Format your computer and install win 10 again.

  • diegobh I took your advice and re-installed a clean version of Windows 10, and downloaded Visual Studio and got further than before. However, all is still not working just yet. I got to the point where it says "Unknown Game Version". The error message is shown in the attached screenshot.

    This error isn't GT-MP's fault. It's because GTA 5 updated and GT-MP don't supports the new version yet.

    You have to downgrade your GTA 5 game folder: Downgrade Tutorial for Update 13.06.2017


    or wait GT-MP updates.
