    you cant run 16bit programs on 64bit windows.

    also that fact that the folder seems a little piratey to me. and it shouldnt be discussed here.

    and vice city doesnt have an app called p.exe

    Hello ,,

    You're right that there's no p.exe in Gta ,,But this will appear when you unRIP it .

    I hope that there's any other way to run it! I need full game not a half !

    Yo you can get the game for $5 before July 22, 2013 on Steam
    Save 50% on Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on Steam

    So yeah like others said it seems either you bought the game from the wrong place or you should avoid shady sites.

    VMWare, or Virtual Box. You can use either of these to setup a Virtual Machine then load up XP into a VM, and then you can run your 16 bit applications/programs. . .Good Luck
