    ealier i posted that when i clicked a shortcut or ran gta.exe to start grand theft auto, nothing happened.

    i backed up my saves, uninstalled, reinstalled. it worked once, then happened again.

    unsintalled, resintalled, worked once. now again, it's just not doing anything, whether i click the shortcut, or start=>run it...

    WTF is going on?

    btw, i also did try a repair installation of windows.

    also, this happens with both vice city, and gta3, but not with any other game or program.

    with gta you might want to check and see if it's running in a windows 98 compatibility mode. As far as the other 2 games go, you've installed the patch for them right, I mean you know about the patches riiight.

    And if they aren't working after the patches. Pray to Jobu because your computer has left you behind.

    how can i check if i'm in win98 compatibility mode?

    i have tried to download the 1.1 patch for gta3, and when i tried to install it, it said i have an "unkown version." :confused:

    i bought gta3 in a store, and again, it's been working fine for 18 months on this same computer.
