**windows vista SERVICE PACK 1 FIX HERE*
Hello, if you're getting an error when you launch GTA 4 that says it needs Windows Vista Service Pack 1 or Higher to launch, then follow these instructions for a quick and easy FIX!

1.) Navigate to your game's directory. Steam/steamapps/Common/GTA IV
2.) Find the file entitled "LaunchGTAIV"
3.) Right click it, and go to properties.
4.) go to the "compatability" tab, and find "Run this program in compad. mode for:", and check that box.
5.) Then, under the drop down menu, select Windows Vista (Service Pack 1).
6.) Apply the changes.
7.) Run the game.
8.) Have loads of fun :)

COMMENT BELOW IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION!

Regards, Walrus.
