Can't start up GTA IV on steam
I know how to start it up without steam and the game works fine, but i can't start it up with steam, I try but it comes up with this error message: GTA IV FATAL ERROR: windows vista: Need to have Service Pack 1 or higher to proceed. (I have windows 7 btw) Anyone know how to fix this and start it up in steam? thanks :)

Go in to your route GTA folder in steam and find the application which starts the game, Right click it and go to compatibility, check 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' and change it to service pack 1 or higher.

Windows 7 is not an option, what should I do?

when you launch "launchgtaiv.exe" it runs fine... but if you try to through steam it fails... hmm what does it do when you try to run gtaiv through "gtaiv.exe"?
