A GTA player that goes by the nickname "lolel" had an issue with the Suckurom launcher, and so he sent an e-mail to the folks over at securom and within 12 hours they sent him a reply. They sent a link to a new LaunchGTAIV.exe file that happens to be a no CD launcher. This version of launchIV.exe is actually V18.104.22.168 indicating that a new patch is already in the works, waiting to be released. Below is what they wrote with a link to the new .exe file:
