I have the win7 beta and I am trying to install GTA 4 but I keep getting an error message. I read somewhere that to correct thsi problem you have to go to DVD contents and change setup.exe to win xp sp2. My only problem is, I have no idea how to get to DVD contents. Please forgive my ignorance. If anyone could help me out with a step step guide as to how to do this I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Start, Computer, right click DVD of GTA and open, not auto run then you should be in there.

You have to install GfW Live and the C++ 2005 files seperately. They're in the DVD as well.

i've got C++ and Windows Live and Rockstar Social Club installed.

however when i go to install the main Setup.exe i get the following error:

Your system is incompatible with %P

Please follow the link to below for more information.

i click the link, and it's instructions to download XP Service Pack 3

first off i'm running Windows 7

secondly i've tried running them both w/o and with compatibility mode (set to Vista)

both do not work.

please help.

You have to set the compatibility mode to XP service pack 2. It should install just fine then.

Why the hell would you install a beta version of Windows (that still has thousand of bugs) on your only pc?You should have another pc to test Windows 7 on.
