Hi MilAnno,

Try running the GTA IV installer in Compatibility Mode for Windows XP SP2. Here's a tutorial: Compatibility Mode

Let me know how that works.

Cheers,

Compatibility is not a global setting, it only affects the .exe whose Properties you accessed to change it. You're good to go

Can you please explain this new problem? I can't tell what's wrong from the screenshot alone.
