Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

What is Grand Theft Auto: Vice City?

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is an open world action-adventure video game. Set in 1986 in Vice City, a fictional city modeled after Miami, the story revolves around Mafia hitman Tommy Vercetti, who was recently released from prison. The game is set in 1986 in fictional Vice City, which is based heavily on the city of Miami, Florida. Because Vice City was built upon Grand Theft Auto III, the game follows a largely similar gameplay design and interface with GTA III with several tweaks and improvements over its predecessor. The gameplay is very open-ended, a characteristic of the Grand Theft Auto franchise.

Overview

Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is gta-vc.exe. The software installer includes 38 files and is usually about 1.47 MB (1,537,326 bytes).
