Weird, Grim - I installed it with Vista compatibility in build 7000 x86 and it worked just fine - all I had to do was install GFWL 1.2....

Well to tell you the truth i know that now, but at the time I was trying everything, so wasn't quite sure which part made it work so I just explained everything I did so I had a guarantee that it would work for everyone else.

Oh, OK, I thought you could *only* make it work in XP compatibility mode.

No worries, then, m8

The only problem that i have now with gta4 is that when i am using alt+tab the game stops working and it's not responding.
Do you guys have that problem?

Yep but I think it does that in any OS, some games just don't like it when you do that.

And *why* would you be Alt-Tabbing again?

I personally alt-tab when I go to look up cheats or I'm modding certain games or something of the sort.

Although I wouldn't be alt-tabbing out of GTA 4... But I do in games like Warhammer Online and Garry's Mod.
