Are you dual booting with XP, if so try running the launcher in the XP partition to see if it makes a difference, I had the same problem with GTA4 and it would run when I launched it from Vista partition, I ended up just replacing the windows 7 install with the vista one and it worked fine after that.

Have you updated DirectX with the March update and made sure you have up to date drivers for every thing else?
