First, Hello :) Im new in the forum, and YES I GOT A PROBLEM :erm:
I used to play on a XP Computer, Desktop computer VCMP... all went fine
But, now I got my new computer WINDOWS VISTA (which I hate) and when I install the MP, and try to play, It just opens the Offline Game...
And when I close it, appears a lot of windows as you can see here:

More proof that Vista is AIDS.

Make sure you're running both gta-vc.exe and vc-mp.exe as Administrator.

Ok, look:

You should disable UAC if you play games a lot, it's a bit of a security risk but if you have an antivirus/firewall you should be fine. Disabling UAC will let you have administrator privileges over everything, so I suggest doing that. Here's the link for instructions: http://www.petri.co....ndows_vista.htm

After you do that, I suggest completely reinstalling Vice City/VC-MP, I mean completely. First just uninstall it - at the end if it asks you to restart, you should restart. After that go to C:/Program Files/Rockstar Games/ and delete the GTA Vice City folder there permanently. After you do this download CCleaner: http://ccleaner.com/ and run the cleaner part of it with no programs running. After that click the "Registry" tab on the side, click "Scan For Issues" and after its done click Fix selected issues... It will ask you to make a backup of the registry, do it in case anything fucks up. After all of this is done restart your computer and install Vice City the way the installer shows you too. Do the full installation and not anything like Custom, just do the full. After that I want you to make a backup of Vice City. Go to C:/Program Files/Rockstar Games/ and right click "GTA Vice City" or whatever the folder is called and hit "copy". After that go to your Documents folder and hit Ctrl + V and let it copy the files into there. Next you may install VC-MP. Post here your results.

Please note that VC-MP's GUI windows aren't coded for vista. In order to close the VC-MP window you need to CTRL + ALT + DELETE and end the process vcmp.exe, or else you'll get crappy runtime errors.

By the way, if you had Multi Theft Auto installed, VC-MP conflicts with it. I mean, it just doesn't run, even on XP. Pick from one of them and install. Post your results.

Yeah I have Vista too, and this is the only thing that bothers me, but theres a quick way take those pop ups out. When they come out, just hold enter and its gone, real easy. Vista is real good, just get use to it..

Best Solution Ever: Get XP. Simple as that. And if you miss the Vista feel, get a pack that makes it look like/act like Vista. Simple as that.

Best? Yeah.. why not spend another $70 on an OEM. The best solution usually is free, mate.

Original equipment manufacturer. It's what Dell, Acer, HP, Packard Bell and all those others use. Basically it's Windows with a slightly different licence (it's only alowed to be installed on one computer. The only reason you'd be allowed to install it on another one would be if your MoBo broke or something like that).

Vista Ultimate retail is 550 EUR here. Vista Ultimate OEM is just 130 EUR. So if you're building your own it's best to buy an OEM. So then you're a PC manuacturer and accept that you are responsible for the system. MS doesn't give any support for OEM versions.

Ah so that's why their computers are so cheap, it's because the OS is really cheap!
Thanks for the info mate!
