for gta3.exe you have to use windows 98 mode, not xp mode... (and steam need to be launched as admin)

for all unhandled exception errors add that file on DEP exclusion

I posted a SilentPatch 1.1 component which fixes this for good and not using some weird 'hope it helps' methods. You just put this DLL in the game directory (works with III and VC) and you're ready to go.
