Hi one and all; and Seasons greetings.
GTA 4 works on PS3 but new PC copy will not install on my new Rig.
I have a new Windows 8.1 x64 gaming PC; I paid the price of four PS4 consoles.
I bought and downloaded GTA 4 a few days ago from Amazon.
Amazon now say I need Windows Vista or XP: but I thought that if this works on Windows 7 (as I have read everywhere) it will work on windows 8.
I am cheesed off because I wanted this for the Mods to get it looking great until GTA 5 is on PC.
I get an error message as I begin to install the game from the download of 13Gb?
The ERROR MESSAGE says "C++ error" redistributable?, then something about an unusual exception error.
Everything else on the PC works perfect. Steam, UPlay everything.
I have seen fixes for the stream version; but Steam does not accept GTA 4 Game Codes.
Any genuine clues that ordinary humans can follow?
