Unhandled Exception: c0000005 At address: 006f5330

Question

SamAiman

Hello, I just bought the Grand Theft Auto Complete Pack on Steam yesterday and really excited as I can finally buy it despite those years of having no money. However, I can't play GTA Vice City after launching it. It doesn't even make it to the menu screen as it will show an error tab which displays the error like the title said. Here is the detailed information of the crash:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BEX
Application Name: gta-vc.exe
Application Version: 0.0.0.0
Application Timestamp: 48982736
Fault Module Name: gta-vc.exe
Fault Module Version: 0.0.0.0
Fault Module Timestamp: 48982736
Exception Offset: 002f5330
Exception Code: c0000005
Exception Data: 00000008
OS Version: 6.2.9200.2.0.0.256.48
Locale ID: 17417
Additional Information 1: 55bd
Additional Information 2: 55bdb125e5f5eebba32ff4470f6d6db1
Additional Information 3: 8a84
Additional Information 4: 8a84dc171444a56e8503b3470906aff1

I tried some solutions, such as:

Changing the compatibility settings (Windows 98/ME & Windows XP SP3)
Adding it to DEP (Data Execution Prevention)
Running it on 640x480 resolution

As on some threads, some people suggest that I should remove the .set file in the GTA Vice City Users folder, but I didn't even have the file as I just bought it.


I really hope you can help me as I really want to play GTA Vice City and III as it is awesome.

The .set file (settings file) will not be created until you actually start the game-- (why you couldn't delete it).

 

Please post your PC specs-- OS, video card, RAM, etc....

 

One thing you can try--- right click on the program start icon and click the compatibility tab- below the compatibility dropdown there should be a setting "disable visual themes"-- check that--

 

Does your PC support 640x480?? I'm not talking about clicking this in the compatibility tab-- some newer PCs do not support that resolution-- can you change your PC's resolution to that in your video settings?

 

It might help to look over the buglist with solutions thread... http://gtaforums.com/topic/188753-bug-list-with-solutions-pc-ps2-xbox/

Don't "run it" in that resolution-- the PC must be able to support that resolution but it is not necessary to switch to that resolution nor "run" the .exe in that resolution--

 

//edit//

 

Just saw this-- http://gtaforums.com/topic/529649-gta-3-and-vice-city-on-windows-8/

 

But it does not look as if you are getting to the screen to turn on the frame limiter.

 

It would not hurt to look over the Buglist with solutions-- http://gtaforums.com/topic/188753-bug-list-with-solutions-pc-ps2-xbox/

 

Look at #30 and possibly #31

As I said, I couldn't even make it to the menu screen, so the solutions of turning the Frame Limiter on is useless as of the #30 solution, also the #31 didn't work either

The game launches, but then goes to a black screen and then back to the desktop with the error tab showing as the title said. (without trying the solutions)

 

I tried using the 800x600 set file, showed the error tab as above, then tried using the 1280x720 and it does nothing.

There haven't been very many people posting threads about steam version of VC running on windows 8-- I don't have alot of experience with getting VC to run on my machine-- it just worked-- so most of the help I've given here has been for the same problems I've seen over the years...

 

On Steam's store-- does it say it is Windows 8 compatible? Do they offer any support-- I just did see they have a message board-- you might get more timely help there--- I saw some vice city for windows 8 issues threads over there with a quick google search...

 

I would keep checking back here in case someone posts back but you might want to explore other resources

Alright, so I tested on my other laptop which uses Windows 7 64bit and it worked! So I guess the OS was the issue, so this issue has been solved :D

 

EDIT: But yea, I really wanna play on my computer which uses Windows 8 32bit because I don't wanna change laptops all the time just to play GTA Vice City and III

UPDATE: I performed a reinstall of Windows, then I reinstalled GTA Vice City.. and guess what? It worked!! Finally :D

 

As for Spuds, I think you should add this method to the unhandled exception solutions if DEP, compatibility and stuff like that don't work.

That is kind of extreme and doesn't make much sense-- did you have to do anything else (on the compatibility tab to get it to work).

 

Also what was you installation history... Like did you have 8.0 originally, upgraded to 8.1, and when you reinstall go straight to 8.1???

 

Thanks in advance...

 

PS... Glad it's working for you.

The same thing is here: Added it to DEP and did Windows XP SP3 to see if Windows 8 or Windows 98 is better.
