I'm running version 1.0.2699.0 of GTA. The game is crashing either while loading into the game or I can get into the game and it crashes if I pause the game.
I have tried launching with only OpenIV, ScriptHookV, and ScriptHookVDotNet installed (no mods, no scripts, no add-on cars), same results. The game doesn't crash with ScriptHookVDotNet uninstalled.
I'm brand new to modding GTA so any help is appreciated.
@brandonsux In your game folder (root folder) there is a file called dinput8.dll that was installed with Scripthook V.
Rename it temporarily to dinput8.bak and see if your game runs properly.
From what you're posting, this doesn't look like a mod problem.
I've never encountered a case where scripthookvdotnet caused a crash - particularly when no scripts are being loaded.
@JohnFromGWN The game seems to run fine after renaming that file. What would that mean?
So renamed to dinput8.dll and now try to remove all .ASI files and add it one by one maybe update your Openiv.asi
Install a right gameconfig too
The game seems to run fine after renaming that file. What would that mean?
@brandonsux It means your game itself is fine. Now you can rename the file back to dinput8.dll.
First thing is to ensure you have the right modding environment with the necessary mods.

If that doesn't fix your issue, second suggestion is to go through this post. Hopefully it will help.
@brandonsux sorry, can't help remotely further than what was already suggested,
Suggest you do a verify integrity and if that doesn't work, backup and then recreate mod environment from scratch but step by step.
