    Hi there [​IMG]

    First off, when I try to open vehicles.img using Spark IV or Open IV, I'll get an error message saying that access is denied. I have tried all the ways I could, but none worked. There are so many problems. Here's a list:

    1. The files in the GTA IV folder are all Read-Only, while the vehicles.img file itself isn't. And I have even tried using "attrib -r" and "takeown /f" methods, but none worked.

    2. I searched google, and many suggested running Spark IV/Open IV as admin, but still failed.

    3. I have copied the vehicles.img folder out to the desktop away from its read-only folder and done steps 1 and 2 to it, but yet to no avail again.

    I have been doing this for over 3 hours and nothing worked [​IMG]

    Any help will be appreciated [​IMG]

    EDIT: I'm running on Vista, running as the only user (i.e. Admin), with UAC turned off.
