What OS is your computer?
GTA IV only works on WinXP SP3 or WinVista SP1.

OS is operating system(Linux, Windows, Mac, etc).
I thought the %P error may be related to an incompatible version of OS, but WinVista SP 1 should be compatible.
I'm Sorry,but I dont know why the %P error occured.
Try installing Frame network 3.5 and Run the setup as administrator.
I will notify as soon as I find the answer.

Have you patched the game?

I found that the %P error sometimes occured when you patched the game while you are using cracks that have multiple files, and some of the files are replaced by the crack, so the Launcher wont work.

Are you using a crack and tried to patch it?

This error occurs only if you are using a wrong version of windows.The information you have given about your windows is wrong.Try downloading service pack 1 and installing it.

The solution for that problem/error is:(verry simple o.O)
1.Mount/introduce the 1st CD in PC
2.Right click on the partition which reads the CD and choose OPEN
3.Right click on AUTORUN/INSTALL.exe and choose OPTIONS
4.Click on COMPATIBILITY(on top of the window) and choose "Windows XP (Service Pack 2) "
5.Save the settings you made and enjoy GTA IV ^^
