Try updating all your drivers.


But what specifically happens?  You double-click the game .exe and it just sits there?


Also, I know this is "illegal" on the forums, you should atleast try a No CD patch.  But it's probably drivers because that's the problem with everything 75% of the time.

I'm having the same problem.  


FIrst, I thought it was because I didnt have SP1 installed (running winXP)... so I installed that.  Still didnt run.


Checked the support site again, apparently if you have multiple partitions, it has to be on the main one.  So, I reinstalled on primary partition. THo, I should note, that I dont have a drive c because I had an old drive(now removed) reserving that drive letter, and I dont remember how to change it.  So, after reinstalling on my system partition, it still wont run.


I have gotten the game to run once and a while, some days it'll run, other days it wont. I've emailed the tech support, but I doubt I'll get an answer any time soon.

I've tried the no-cd patch as well, and it doesnt work.


What happens, is it tries to load, and then just does nothing. I believe it loads something into the memory as well, because if I try several times, my system slows down a fair bit.


edit -


Ok, a mikjb or somebody posted this:

Ok, I found out that GTA Vice City in some way had corrupted my settings file, which in winXP is located in "C:\Documents And Settings\Your XP User Name\My Documents\GTA Vice City User Files\" and is called "gta_vc.set". I deleted this file and Vice City worked fine afterwards. I just had to setup graphics and controls again, but that's no biggie.


You might wanna add this to the list, cause the same thing occured with one of my friends' Vice City, too..

in the main bug thread, and it fixed my problems! w00t.


great stuff now I can play it! hopefully it wont continue doing this...
