[Fix] SecuLauncher failed to start application 2000 (Windows 10) – GTA IV

If you get “SecuLauncher failed to start application 2000″ error in GTA IV, it means that Visual C++ Redistributable packages that are installed on your PC, are incompatible with GTA IV.

Fix 1: Install Compatible C++ Redistributable packages

  • Go to “Add/Remove programs list(If you dont know where it is, just type it in the taskbar search box).
  • Remove all Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable items from the list.
  • Navigate to “System Disk > Program files > Steam > Steamapps > Common > Grand Theft Auto IV > installers > Redistributable” folder.
  • Look for “vcredist_x86.exe“.
  • Run this setup file.
  • After that, go back to “Add/Remove programs list” again and make sure that it is installed.
  • Launch GTA IV.

Note: Do not launch the game directly. It would be better if you launch it via Social club Play.

If it fixed your error, please let me know 🙂
