The last request is thrown ten times no more then get stuck there. No error shown


Same for me regarding Windows config


Only “dumb” way to make it work is :

PC Reboot
Launch FiveM without running local server.


Mine works sometimes after killing every fivem process and relaunching fivem but more often it’ll fail to launch again for anywhere between one and five times before launching succesfully
Does seem that the first launch of the day always seems to work…or after a long waiting periode (services not getting killed properly?)


Same stuff for me… I’ll try to investigate later but I hope FiveM can help us on this one since both our configs match, so does the client logs.


Can you people post launcher.log and socialclub_launcher.log from an unsuccessful launch? You can find them in the Documents folder.


Hi @osmium, Thanks for replying ! sure I’ll send those logs ASAP when I’m done working

FiveM don't run since the last update

i can sent you the files right now, but i don’t fing them. I don’t have any FiveM Folder in Documents/
Is it in Documents/RockstarGames/GTA V?
€dit: Obviously now that i want this bug, the game start perfectly. if i have issues again i post dem files here.


Launcher and Social Launcher pasted in one paste


I think I have the same problem, and to resolve it, I just launch my GTA V (without FiveM, just GTA V) and it works. I think FiveM is definitively not for Windows 7 :frowning:


working better for me if i cut Steam…


i get this [Window Title]
FiveM Fatal Error

[Main Instruction]
FiveM has encountered an error

Crash in loading server

I don’t know if it will work for you or if its already fixed.
1: I close steam
2: Start five M
3: When I press Ok for the windows 10 alert, I start steam

My bad if its only for me.


i will try, could be helpful
Edit: sadly it dosen’t for me. Maybe because i have 2 steam accounts, so i have to enter manually the password each i connect.
Edit2: I missed the trick!
I have to click on OK (windows10 error) before to run steam, and hope to have the time for the password!
It work now thanks :smiley:


Seems to better the last two days or so on my end
edit: nope still happening xD


i just found a solution(it works for me):
1.Simply run FiveM
2.Wait for the Red FiveM screen to go away(don’t end any process)
3.Open FiveM location folder and then go to : FiveM Application Data > cache > subprocces.
4.Run FiveM_SteamChild.exe
I hope it works for you!


@Music_Heat That works for me, thanks.

My FiveM launches fine on the first launch, but anything after that it doesn’t do anything after the red splash screen. Only way I could fix was restarting computer or using the fix mentioned by Music_Heat.


this solution works for me as well


I believe your problem is exactly the same as mine.

It seems that everything is linked to a failure that ends the processes linked to the Social Club:


(At least I believe these processes are linked to the Social Club)

I also made a post here on the forum reporting the same problem. If possible, take a look:
