VC PC Install & Load

Recommended Posts


I had this game working until I tried to do a mod so I won't go into major CPU detail right now. Dell desktop, Intel Celeron 2.4, 256MB, 40GB, Windows XP, etc. No reason the computer specs are limiting this game, as i've played it several times. After it quit working from the mod work, I reinstalled it a couple times without it working then finally got it to work again. After that time, it would always close out of the application during loading. Now I can't even get it installed properly i'm thinking.


I'm having installation problems, which may be leading to loading problems. I run through the install wizard with the install cd, goes through misc files, then directX files, then it gets to the Radio Station files and of course asks for a different cd which I put in, it gets to the end and asks me to click finish, I click finish, the application closes, then a dialog box pops up that says "Windows - Wrong Volume The wrong volume is in the drive. Please insert volume GTA_Vice_City into drive D:." It gives you the option to cancel, try again, or continue. You can click on either of them numerous times and the box pops up again. I've tried to put the install cd back in, but then it asks if you want to go through the uninstallation process. After you do get close out of that Wrong Volume box, I get a box that says "Setup.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." and asks you if you want to send an error report. After you click out of that, I get the Dr. Watson box pop up which says "setup.exe has generated errors and will be close by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created." Then it sometimes starts the whole process over once more from the Wrong Volume box to the Dr Watson pop up box. After that's over, I have tried to play the game. I get up until the load screen after you click New Game. The load bar loads a perfect halfway, then it stops and you can hear a beep in the background, then the CD goes for a little bit and slows down, the game doesn't do any more until you hit spacebar or enter. Then, it minimizes the display as smaller black screen with the toolbar on top of the normal desktop background with toolbar at bottom, and eventually closes the application. When the application close, I get a dialog box that says "gta-vc.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." Then it asks if you want to send an error report. After that box comes up, I get the Dr. Watson box that says "Program Error: gta-vc.exe has generated errors and will be close by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created."


That's the extent of it. I don't know what to do. nervous.gif
