Setup.exe Wont Run

Recommended Posts

Hayy, so I bought GTA-VC from Game today, and I've been wanting to play it so bad, nostalgia is /win

I put in the install disc and then I waited, nothing. Then I realised that the autorun wasen't working. So I went into my DVD Drive and double clicked Setup.exe, I get a flash of a second

CMD box then it dissapears, and nothing happens.

I tried turning UAC off, yeah I'm in vista, should've mentioned that earlier, and I restarted computer, tried again, exact same, tried running as an administrator, same thing. Tried running with UAC off, compatibility for windows 98, and then XP and as an administrator. NOTHING.

If you need me to make a quick video of what happens I'll hapilly do so.

Infact give me a few minutes to post one on youtube, then I'll post it on here :3

 

I hope you can help me.

 

My specs are:

2.4GHz Core 2 Duo; 2GB 800MHz Corshair DDR2 Ram, nVidia GeForce 8600GT XXX

etc. etc.. etc...

Okay... Could be a problem with your disk drive.

I've seen that happen on my computer. What I recommend is, make an ISO and try to launch it through disk emulation. If it doesn't work then, it's something else.

K I'll try that, thankfuly I have DaemonTools anyhow, for Oddworld Games biggrin.gif Since if you run it from a disc it'll just say Not supported in windows NT.

I'll postanother reply once I get back from work, using my laptop

What edition of Vista do you have? I heard the problem only happens with the Home Premium edition, not the others.

 

Do you have Aero enabled? I heard this can cause problems too. I heard you can fix it by turning it off.

Windows Vista Home Premium, as you can see in the video, aero is disabled, faster for alt tabbing between games and stuff, don't need to change themes every time I leave full screen.

K, that's not the problem anymore, I took the game back today since it's my day off, and I got a new one. Now when I run it. The autoplay runs and I let setup.exe begin. Once I've clicked it, lots and lots and LOTS of setup.exe's start up and end up taking over my processes tab in Task Manager.

It slows my computer down dramaticly and I really want to play this again...

Does anyone have a rip of this game I can download? I have valid CD keys so it's legal for me to do so.

Gtamodder may be right, I installed VC on a Laptop with Home Premium and it crashed loads, install porblems etc,

however, on my gaming PC it's fine, it may be your hardware configuration or the game not agreeing with your DVD drive, it doesn't mean it's a

faulty drive. Oh, and Warez is against the forum rules.

These guys may not agree with that.... http://www.fbi.gov/

 

As stated above-- Warez discussion is against forum rules...

=/ I wan't to play GTA:VC

K about the warez thing. FYI it is legal if you own a game license. Anyway..

Anyone know why when I run the setup like 12 or more of them run?

Tried ripping to an iso and emulating, didn't work. Tried using it on my other PC, which has XP Pro. Nothing worked, both discs btw.

Any ideas?
