OK.. I bought the GTA collectors edition a few years ago.
The collectors edition contains: GTA, GTA London, and GTA II.
I installed the GTA portion, pick my character, and poof.. it quits.
So a few years later, I found the CD again. I installed it on my laptop, windows 7 64 bit, Intel I7, and the same thing.
Poof... quits about I pick the character and click the play button.
