GTA IV installation error !!!

I was just installing GTA IV the other day and suddenly i get a "catastrophic error". Is it because i was installing it on windows 10 or is there something else?

Here is the link to the image:

    My specs:
    i3 @ 3.5 GHz
    12gb ram
    Nvidia GT 610 2gb

    I've got plenty of storage left on my disk. This game used to work for me on Windows 7. Also I have tried changing the compatibility settings, but still nothing.

    i see.i encounter the same issue as well before with one of laptop with gta 4 i think few years back.i was upgrading from 7 to windows 8 at that time.in the end i try a clean install of windows 8 instead of upgrading and surprisingly the game suddenly decided to finish installing.
