Thanks for the reply. I'm not talking about Xbox. GTA3(PC version) runs on PC not Xbox. I want it to run with WINDOWS 10! IT RAN ON XP, VISTA, 7, AND 8 BUT NOT ON 10!

Hello,

I had problems trying to install GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas but I found a fix.

Download and install DirectX:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=35

Silent Patch:

http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=25368

Along with this, also try running them in compatibility mode as well as an administrator.

Also try downloading DirectPlay if prompted.

Hope this helps :)

Garner's link to the DirectX Web Installer is not longer viable. The link has been directed to the

Windows 10 download page. Reasons for this are unknown, and unfathomable to those outside the

Monopoly$oft inner circle.

Currently the only option for addressing DX issues is to download the full installer below.

The DirectX runtime installer overwrites all DX files, which has the added benefit of replacing any corrupt

DirectX files.

This installer goes back to June 2010, but that is when the last of the DX 9, 10 and 11 files were released.

Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - DirectX Redist (June 2010)

- I don't have GTA3, but notice the 'silent' patch covers later releases of the game, and GTA-VC, GTA-SA

and GTA4 all run well on Win10 without this patch. The patch may get the game running, but -

I believe that GTA3 is one of many games that are being stopped from launching by the dictatorial

Win10's DRM blocking.  This only affects retail disk versions of games.

If so, a noCD fix/hack  (which may be included in the 'silent' mod)  would be the only way to get a

retail disk version of the game running.
