I also have this problem. Are you running Windows 8 by any chance?

well, you just need to tick the box for compatibility mode after this, it doesn't matter how you start the game, I THINK :D

Well, I think it's narrowed down to a compatibility issue with the OS, but Steam shouldn't be bundling a game in with others if it's not going to run on the newest version of Windows.

I also have GTA III with this problem.

The readMe file indicates VC is compatible with Windows XP SP1, but Windows 7 doesn't have a SP 1 compatability mode. The compatability troubleshooting tool determined Windows XP SP2 was the best option. And I'm now being prompted if it's alright for the program to make changes, but I still haven't gotten it to work.
