Can't install VC on Windows 7.

Hi, I have been trying to install GTA Vice City onto my laptop and have been having issues installing it. What basically happens is I go through the initial setup until it gets to the point where it shows the game loading, then after a minute or so it asks for the next disc. I load the next disc, hit ok on the window that asks for the disc, and a window pops up that says 'wrong disc inserted insert right one' or something along those lines. If this helps, I had the game installed on here once before but uninstalled it due to space constrictions, but have that issue solved and would like it installed once again. Although when it was installed, I don't believe I ever used it more than once and when I ran it, it was very buggy. If anyone could help, or point me in the right direction for help, I would be much obliged. Sorry if this is a repost. Thank you.

First, is this the Retail(CD) version? OR A downloaded version? If Downloaded, from where? If Retail, is this the Original CD OR a Copy of the CD? Any No-CD cracks? Have you tried disabling your AV and Firewall to make sure they are not blocking the game?

 

Next, Please post the REQUIRED INFORMATION from the Pinned Troubleshooting topic, as posted by Justin(a moderator) here for conveniance:

Before you post a topic, please read the pinned bug lists/fixes. It is likely that you're not the first person to encounter a problem, and we may have found a solution already. In addition to these pinned topics, please utilize the forum search engine. adamcs has produced an extremely helpful guide which explains the finer points of successful searching, accessible here.

 

If all of the above is no help, you'll need to post a new topic. Please provide useful topic titles. "Help" or "problem" give us no insight into the problem - every topic in the Troubleshooting forum will no doubt entail a problem seeking help!

 

To get the most amount of help for your problem, we need as many details as we can get about your system's specs. Therefore it is highly suggested (read: demanded) that you provide:

• What platform: PC, PS2, or X-Box

• What version number of GTA: VC-Retail or Download? Original Or V 1.1 patch

• What CPU and its speed

• How much RAM, also what kind (DDR, SDRAM) and speed

• What video card AND VRAM and driver version

• Which version of Windows (and any service packs)

• Which DirectX version and driver version

• What sound card and driver version

• History: Is this your first install? Did it work once before? Anything that is relevant.

• Screenshots, if applicable. This is especially necessary with display issues which can be explained far easier by use of visual aids.

• Above all else, a detailed description of your problem. Give as much information as possible! Keep it relevant, though. We don't need a fifty-page printout from some diagnosis program. Usually the above prompts will suffice.

 

If you don't know the more detailed specs of your system, and the system control panel is of little help for most of these, download and use Everest Free Edition 2.20 or Fresh Diagnose. Be sure to extract only the relevant information from these programs - again, lengthy printouts are meaningless and tedious to rifle through.

 

Do not ask questions relating to modding in any way or form - we have an entire editing subforum to house any such inquiries.

 

Sorry, I'm just getting tired of seeing people ask questions and everyone else trying to help have to turn around and ask that person questions that should have been already included with the original question. Please note that this is simply a copy and paste job from the VC topic originally posted by Wolf and continually updated by Spuds and myself. The topic has proven very successful in the VC forums, and I daresay it's damn necessary here.

 

Please post ALL the above info, so we can better help you...

 

If you need help finding the information above, go to Run(if XP) OR Search if Vista or 7, and type in DXDIAG and press Enter, the the first screen shows the OS, Processor, RAM, etc., the Display tab will show the Video card info, and the Sound tab will show the Sound card info.

Alright, sorry for the long response, I have been disconnected from the internet for the past few days an had no way of getting back to you. Anyway, I tried disabling my firewall and as of right now the game is installing. I will let you know if anything goes wrong after it is installed. It would make sense that it was that, because when I first installed it I had just bought the computer that it is on and never had any virus software installed. I thank you for your time and help.

 

Brennan.

Does not matter; it should work. Try running the game in Windows 98 compatibility mode.
