FiveM won't launch properly

The issues
So, right after installing FiveM, the launcher opens perfectly fine. When trying to join a server however, I get the “steam needs to be running” message. So I restart steam and FiveM.

Now FiveM will not launch. It will briefly show the social club window and then shuts down, including the FiveM.exe process. No error message received.

When deleting the cache.xml file and reupdate FiveM, the trouble starts all over again.

I found out the launcher does work, when I first open the original GTA V through steam and then open FiveM. So I now have both FiveM and the original GTA V running simultaneously.

The problem now however, is that when I try to join a server the game crashes and I get the “FiveM has stopped working” message.

Also add what you already tried so far. Reinstalled GTA V and FiveM, updated .NET Framework

Bump, anybody with the same issue?

ik heb dat ook :confused: ik kan het maar niet fixen

are you still having this problem @Kippekont

@moneymanmo Yeah problem is still there.

So after 3 weeks and some updates I tried again. It crashes on opening the launcher now too, but when I check the debugger in visual studio, it shows me this:

Unhandled exception at 0x000007F95BBD369F (CoreRT.dll) in FiveM_ROSLauncher: 0xC0000005: Access violation writing location 0x000007F956DEED30.

Exception thrown at 0x000007F95BBD369F (CoreRT.dll) in FiveM_ROSLauncher: 0xC0000005: Access violation writing location 0x000007F956DEED30.

The program ‘[3044] FiveM_ROSLauncher’ has exited with code 0 (0x0).

Seems like there’s something wrong with permissions? Anyone has any idea what to look for? I have given all usertypes full permission in the properties window.
