The installer works
The music plays without a screen.
What does not
I applied the TEXP70 patch, upgraded the game to TU5, and applied the XLiveLess patch, but when the game starts, the screen resolution is changed to 800x600, and a black screen appears for a second and disappears. GTAIV is basically not playable.

Games for Windows - LIVE does not work under Wine. GFWL components will crash any game that use the service. The only thing to do about it is to cut XLive out using XLiveLess Patch.
1) Download the latest XLiveLess patch from here.
2) Unpack xlive.dll into the game folder.
XLive is out and the game launch is unobstructed. Please note that from now on the online play via GFWL is disabled so as to prevent cheating.
