No, you haven't.


The error you are reporting is generic and useless. We're going to need to know as much as possible to have a chance of helping you.

Again, it is quite plain that you haven't. I'd elaborate, but if you go ahead and read the topic you'll see it requests certain information from you; information you've so far failed to supply.

Update the driver for the Intel GMA 845 chipset at the Intel website. Also, make sure you are using an administrative account when you installed the game.

It rather sucks to buy the game like that - buy the retail box. Did it actually install the Vice City core/data files, as well as the radio stations?


OK, go into Add/Remove Programs, and confirm if Vice City is 1.46 GB in size.

Is there any link to download GTA-VC.....?



As far as I'm concerned, you've got a bogus, pirated copy of the game and you're now asking for a download link. Whether this is the fault of your own or not is immaterial - GTANet won't support warez and the problem will likely be fixed by running e legitimate copy of the game.
