GTA IV x64 bit installation help!

I realize this thread has been talked about before, however there has been NO answer to the specific problem I am having. I just joined the forum simply because nobody anywhere online has been able to solve my issue.

I downloaded GTA IV, I use Daemon Tools to mount the .iso file and attempt to start the installation process. However I have run all .exe's including the setup.exe in the GTAIV folder and the autorun.exe all of them in every compatibility mode vista 2 xp 2 and 3 none of them work. The error message is attached in my attachments.

I have done multiple things from attempting to run in compatibility modes to trying to use some registry methods as well. None of them work. I have heard this game had many bugs on pc little did I know this is the game from hell...

ANY help with this problem is greatly appreciated.. Thanks

Well, for starters you could actually buy the game.

None of the legal ways to install this game require accessing an ISO file. The only reason you would need to install the game this way is if you are installing it from an illegal torrent download.

Get it from Steam or buy it on disk, [basically don't pirate the game] and this problem will magically disappear.

I'll make it simple.

From the Forum Rules:

Quote:
4) No piracy or discussion of piracy allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations (e.g. downloading youtube videos locally etc).
No one here is going to risk their account to help you with a pirated game. We don't support piracy here and it's obvious from the nature of your 'issue' that your copy of GTA IV is pirated.

Seek your answers elsewhere, you'll find no sympathy or aid for your piracy related problems here.

Buy the game, has no issues installing through steam, you get what you pay for. Like contrabardus said, nobody is going to help you because it's obviously pirated.

Your Windows installation is probably counterfeit too

Even better, the Steam Summer Sale is on right now.

It's $5 on Steam right now, $20 normally. It's usually on sale for less than that, most of the time I've seen it it's been $9.99.

GTA IV plus EfLS is $7.49.

What's the excuse for not having a legal copy again?
