    Best error message I've encountered so far...


    Thanks MS and Rockstar, really nice of you telling me what's wrong with my Windows. Oh wait, what's that running in the background? Is that Windows Media Player? No, that cannot be because you need it and it's clearly not there, otherwise you would not show me that cool and very useful error message...

    P.S. No help needed, I've already resolved the issue. But I thought it would be fun to share it with you

    Before the tinfoil hat brigade starts accusing Microsoft about this, I think it's important to clarify that this is a GTA and / or its installer issue, having nothing to do with Microsoft.

    I still think the best error ever was "No keyboard found, press F1 to continue".

    I occasionally used to get a few guys worried at work by that one. VB Script and put it in startup.

    One of the best errors I ever had was when using XP, sadly the SS has long gone. All it said was "Unknown application has caused unknown error in unknown module". one of those wtf moments

    We should start a "great error messages" thread in the Chillout room. Lots of room for great humor, and old memories, here. Good job, guys!
