Problems modding GTA IV on Windows 7 64

Hi people I'm having problems puting car/mods into GTA IV.

The only things I can change is txt files handlings etc.

But when I go to edit Vehicles.img or other in that area I get this when opening with Open IV.

Access to path 'C:programs files (x86) Rockstar Games\GTA IV\PC\Models\cdimages\vehicles.img is denied.

I'm running on Windows 7 64. On my old XP 32 I use to have file that made all the modding work.

GTA IV patch 1.0.3.0

I anyone can help me it would be most great thanks.

Did you uncheck the Read Only flag under the Properties menu?

Did you try modifying the file with admin privileges?

I have windows 7 x64 and everythings working fine. i had a problem up until i set the ENTIRE gtandtheftautoIV folder to not read only.

like, common/grandtheftauto4 << uncheck read only from that folder and it will make EVERYTHING unchecked, not just the individual files, and see if that works.

It's hard modding GTA IV in Windows 7, I have the same problem with a god mod.
And the Spark IV runs in a problem warning everytime.

rappo advised Patching GTA IV with the newest patch,
And ray_P1 advised using the GTA IV simple native trainer from dualcore,

I just had to come here and register and make a post.

@Zergtos - Did you know that search terms such as mod installation and subjects such as "Problems modding GTA IV on Windows 7 64" show up on Google? Ya thats right. So when I see a thread such as this I go, wow... finally someone with an answer as to how to get this going right. Then I see your lovely "Nevermind I fixed it" yet you NEVER FUCKING CAME BACK TO TELL US HOW!!!

I really could give a shit how old this thread is. I am stumped trying to get this to work and assholes like you make me sick with backward logic. "Hey guys I fixed it, but I wont say how"

Fuck off!
