Fix error 1000.50 in GTA V Steam
The reason for this error can actually be due to several things, from: problems with the Rockstar Game server, Social Club, Steam, our computer, etc. So we are going to see several methods, we recommend that you try each of them and it is not necessary to go in a specific order.
Check the status of the Social Club service
Obviously, this error may appear if your Social Club is not working or is undergoing maintenance. So the first thing we have to do is make sure the status of the service is online. To confirm this we can consult it from the same Web from Rockstar Games. If we find that there are problems with the servers, we have no choice but to wait.
If the problem is due to some technical problem, then this method should work quite effectively.
- The first thing we will do is open the Task Manager, for this we press the key combination Ctrl + Shift + Del.
- Next, we go to the “Processes” tab and we are going to look for the Steam-related tasks, we will have to close them one by one, right-clicking “End task”.
- After this we look for the entries related to Social Club and we do the same again.
- Once everything is closed, we reopen the Steam client and start GTA V.
Start Steam as administrator
Giving Steam administrator permissions helps to fix this problem. For this we will have to right click on the Steam icon and select “Run as administrator”. If we see that it works, then we can make sure that the app is always open as administrator, for this we will do the following:
- We look for the Steam icon and we right-click it, select “Properties”.
- Next, we go to the “Compatibility” tab.
- Among all the options that we can see at the bottom, in the “Settings” section, we will have to mark the one that says “Run this program as administrator”.
- Then we click on “Apply” and “OK”.
Restart the Steam service
- First we will use the keyboard shortcut, we are going to press Windows + R on our keyboard and in this window we will write services.msc
- Once we are in the services window, we are going to scroll down and look for the service called Steam Client Service, we click on it and select the Stop option to stop it.
- Again, we right click on Steam Client Service and select the Properties option.
- After this, we will have to select the type of server startup as Automatic and press “Start”.
- Now we are going to Apply> OK to be able to save the changes.
To finish, we restart Steam and GTA V and check if the error persists.
