Why This Happens #

You may need to validate your files for the following reasons:

  • You installed or made modifications to your game files
  • Your game is out of date
  • An update was not applied properly
  • Your files have become corrupted

Validating your files will re-download the invalid files from the site where you purchased GTA V® from. You should be aware that if many files are corrupted or have been modified, the download may be large (1-10+ GB). Any modifications you may have will be removed.

Repairing with Rockstar Social Club Launcher #

In order to validate your game files, you will need to use the Command Prompt on your PC. First, you will need to cd (change directories) into the directory that you have installed the GTA V® game in.

The default location that GTA V is installed to:

C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto V\

The Rockstar Social Club Launcher


  • Press the ⊞ Win key on your keyboard to bring up the start menu, and then type in Command Prompt, and press ↵ Enter to start it.

  • Once the Command Prompt is open, change directories to your game files:

    cd C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto V

    If your game is installed in a different folder or drive, you will need to use that folder instead:

    cd E:\Your\Path\To\GTA

  • Type the following command in to verify your game files:

    GTAVLauncher.exe -verify

  • The Rockstar launcher will now verify your game files.

Repairing with Epic Games Launcher #

It is easy to verify your GTA V game files with the Epic Launcher.
First, you will need to open the Epic Games Launcher.

The validation process in the Epic Games launcher


  • Open the Epic Games Launcher

  • Find Grand Theft Auto V in your games list

  • Click on the button with three dots next to the game name:

Repairing with Steam Launcher #

Repairing your game files with the Steam Launcher is very simple. First, make sure your Steam client is open, then go to the Library tab.

  • Find Grand Theft Auto V in your games list

  • Right Click the item in the list and click on Properties

  • In the window that pops up, click on Local Files
