Yet Another VIce City Won't run problem
Vice CIty won't run for some reason. I can't empty the Vice City user data folder because there's nothing in it! Deleted the entire folder, nothing.

Played around with compatibility, screen resolution, etc, nothing. Screen goes dark, then returns. Creates the user data folder, but again it's empty.

Tried the main VC exe, also the testapp.exe

Windows 7, Intel Quad Core, 64 bit
If anybody has any ideas, I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

I'm having the same problem with both VC and SA. I open VC and it just goes to a black screen then stops responding. I can play SA but it freezes when it goes to the black screen with the mission titles. Not impressed Valve, not impressed.

Win7. Intel Core i5, 64 bit.

Having the same issue. I can load the game fine but when I want to play the game the screen goes black!.

Bloody hell, searched bunch of fixes and none worked here. Did the everything listed above plus the enabling gta-vc.exe in DEP and no dice. I guess this teaches me a lesson of buying games older than 5 years without checking if it works on a 64x os. I was mistaken that Steam uses updated and compatable software.

Try enabling the frame limiter. I was having similar problems getting stuck on loading screens until I did that.
Jadedrakerider Apr 28, 2013 @ 6:30pm 
Where is the frame limiter?
YOLO KNIGHT Apr 28, 2013 @ 6:39pm 
Display options.

You mean after the game goes to menu? It doesn't get that far. The screen literally goes blank as if to go into the intro, and then returns to the desktop.

Oh. Not sure then. Did you try deleting the VC folder itself or did you just empty it?
Jadedrakerider Apr 28, 2013 @ 9:22pm 
I uninstalled it via steam. Should I try deleting the folder itself?

No worries though, thanks for trying to help!

Yeah, I believe that's what I did. I had older non-Steam saves in mine though.

Valve had better get this *poop fixed. Why would they release it if it doesn't run on 64 bit? does anyone even run a 32 Bit OS these days?

I'm running it fine on Win7 x64 (after turning on the frame limiter) so people who can't run it at all are probably having a different problem.
