I Want to know how we can play online?

Hello Gentlemen. I have managed to run GTA IV on ubuntu linux 12.04lts with a proprietary driver Nvidia 332.32, add the title Update 1.6 patch to remove the RGSC and have managed to partially play 1 player campaign. However, it has tempted me the idea of playing online with IVMP program but I must upgrade to 1.7 and when trying to do it tells me: The installer has been closed prematurely and can not update the game. Can anyone help me? .
I copied the game updated for windows. however IVMP does not work and get a runtime error C + + 2005 compiler. my version is 1.6
the game runs fucking with patch 1.6. however there is not any chance of playing on line?. I would trollear rat children using Windows 7. XD.
