Patch screwed everything up
game had been running just fine, but I wanted to use joystick, so I patched it.
game had all sorts of problems, immediately; became unplayable.
have attempted to remove game from system (Vista Home Premium; 32 - bit), with and without UAC turned on. Game would not uninstall using disk. would not uninstall using add/remove programs feature; had to delete directly from C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games.
Setup program will only offer Modify, Repair, or Remove; no install. As there are no files to repair or modify, these are useless. Also, remove claims to work (as though there are vestiges still in system) but this makes no difference.
I have also manually removed holdover data through the 'AppData' locations.
there is a GTA IV file that will not uninstall from the Add/Remove area; when I try to uninstall, it sez that SecuROM license failed to release.
I have tried everything that I can think of to get this game to re-install and have run out of options.
Can anyone help, please?
