GTA 4 and windows 7

I don't know how you guys managed to do this.

I have windows 7 and I just got GTA 4 today, installed that Social Club thing, then went I got to the actual GTA installation it said that it isn't compatible with %p which I took as isn't compatible with windows 7

I have noticed that you guys somehow installed vcredist_x86 and xliveredist .. how? everytime i run it it crashes or if i put any different compability mode it doesn't even load and gives me "windows installer has stopped working"

I tried logging into safemode and launching it.. it didn't exactly gave me that error but didn't install it either ..

any help would be greatly appritiated.

Did you install Gta 4 itself under XP in the troubleshoot compatability? That will fix the %p problem to start with.

In 7 there is new a installation 'Toubleshoot compatability' mode. This is different to 'Run as'.

Use the troubleshoot on the setup.exe

You have used Orbit30's Patch haven't you, if so you will break lots of features including compatibility mode.
