This problem has been really annoying for me, as I want to play my favourite game once again.
So, when I press the gta_vc.exe file, this text pops up: Unhandled expection at address 00652f30.
I've tried anything. I have tried to put the file in to Data Execution Prevention, I've tried to disable Windows Aero, I've tried to run it as an administrator and in every compatibility mode. I tried to look for the vc_set file and remove it but I didn't find it. My copy of the game is a legal version bought from a store nearby. My OS is Windows 7 64-bit version.
