i use 64 bit which has some problems with VC

is there a fix for this problem...........i tried running it on different compatibility modes but nothing works

Hi is it a download of the game from Steam ? or a proper disk version of the game? i ask because i have a few copies of ViceCity being one of my favourite GTA's and i have not had an issue getting it to install on 64bit windows.

I have run it on 8 10 and i am currently running win7 again as i prefer it to 10.

Its the one GTA i have not had problems with GTA3 wouldnt run unless it was in compatability mode, San Andreas had to be run in admin mode, ViceCity has never given me issues.

error c0000005 is a generic one doesnt point to the real issue
