Do you have permission to modify files in those directories? Are you an Administrator or User with sufficient privileges?

If you're running Vista, right-click the software and click Run as administrator.

i am running vista but it doesnt give me the opton to run as administrator, is it because it saved on E drive?

could it be because magic is zipped

By chance, is E your DVD drive?

e is not the dvd drive i think its call a external hard drive

Why isn't GTA IV installed to your C drive?

Go to the GTA IV installation folder. Right-click, click Properties.
Security tab, Advanced button.
Permissions tab, Change Permissions button.
Add button.
Advanced button.
Find Now button, click your user name, OK button.
OK button.
Change Apply To drop-down box to This Folder, Subfolders And Files, check Full Control and click OK.
Click OK.
Click OK.
Click OK.

Tell me if that works.

ok that work i didnt get access denied by the box still goes blue it is supposed to then there is no problem( just to clarify the read only box has three states 1 has a tick, anotherone is clear and the other one is blue) so what i am asking is does it matter that the read only box is blue .

Thundercracker 01-20-2009 08:09 PM

Ohh, blue. I personally refer to it as filled.

Checked means all files are read-only. Unchecked means no files are read-only. Filled (blue) means some (anywhere from one to almost every file) is read-only.

The filled box only applies to folders containing files (or subfolders).

I'm sure you're fine now. All files in which you could remove the read-only attribute from are likely changed and can be modified further without issue.
