    alright this is going to be a PITA i think but i am going to ask you anyways

    story: k so i am all exited bout windows 7 (and rightly so) and i got an evaluation version! but not wanting to reformat my 1 hard drive or buy a new one i made a partition about 20 gigs in size and installed windows 7 onto it, so i figure that the path to running a game i installed onto the windows vista Hard Drive should be easy, i went into My Computer and i found rockstar games social club and ran it, after doing the logging in thing i clicked "run GTA IV" and i got this [​IMG](please ignore the BF2142 game in the background its my desktop)
