What works


What does not

The installer refuses to start because it can't find Windows Media Player.
After installing with a workaround, was able to start the launcher, but Social Club crashes with an exception error and the launcher gets into endless waiting.


What was not tested

Everything past the launcher startup.

Additional Comments

The workaround for the installer bug is: 1. Make a clean 32bit wineprefix. 2. install wmp10 with winetricks. 3. Run the installer and complete the installation. Note: The DVD must be mounted with the "exec" filesystem flag, or you'll get a "not exec filesystem" error. 4. Make a clean 64bit wineprefix. 5. Copy C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto V from the 32bit wineprefix to the 64bit one. 6. Export HKLM\Software\Rockstar Games and HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{E01FA564-2094-4833-8F2F-1FFEC6AFCC46} from the 32bit wineprefix registry. The second key may be different on your system. If so, browse the available Uninstall keys until you find the one that contains entries for Grand Theft Auto V. 7. Import the two registry files you just made into the 64bit wineprefix registry. 8. Download the latest Social Club from the Rockstar support website and install it to the 64bit wineprefix. 9. Install the redistributables from the DVD: - DirectX. - VC++ 2008 Redistributable. Full story:

Would be nice to have installation instructions.
