FiveM crashes on start after changing RESIDENT.rpf

GTA V version?: 1.0.1868.0
Up to date? Yes.
Legit or Pirate copy? Legit.
Steam/CD/Social Club? Steam
Windows version? Windows 10 (Build 1809)
Did you try to delete caches.xml and try again? Yes.
Error screenshot (if any)
System specifications i7-8750H, 16GB RAM, GTX 1050ti (Driver 440.97)
What did you do to get this issue? I used OpenIV to change a siren audio file in the RESIDENT.rpf/vehicles.awc file. I made sure that its file size is small enough and that the file uses 16-bit WAV and only mono channels.
Before that I used a modified RESIDENT.rpf file, which I didn’t modify, but worked perfectly
What server did you get this issue on? /
CitizenFX.log file
.dmp files/report IDs si-0c3523013cac4f43b123d4224d9790bf

If an issue with starting:
GTA V folder screenshot
GTA V/update/x64/dlcpacks screenshot /
Filepath to FiveM folder
FiveM client folder screenshot / /
Which antivirus/firewall software are you using? Kaspersky Free
Did you try to disable/uninstall your Anti-virus? Yes.

Also add what you already tried so far:
I tried putting the modified RESIDENT.rpf in both, the GTAV mods folder (OpenIV) and in the FiveM Application Data mods folder. However, when I used the the normal unmodified RESIDENT.rpf in the normal folder (x64/audio/sfx), then it would only load that. When I replaced the file with the modified one, FiveM would crash with the error message when starting.
HOWEVER, if I normally start GTA V through Steam or OpenIV, then the game doesn’t crash and correctly loads the modified RESIDENT.rpf file.

I hope you can help me.
If you have any other questions regarding the error, just ask me.
