I was able to run gta san andreas on my windows 7 x64. Is there some kind of error message that pops up when you try and play it?

no messege, it's just didn't start, and i think it was a common problem for those who use windows 7 and gta san andreas, i used to run it perfectly on my windows xp...can u help me find the error ?

i've tried to use compatibility setting for the game to set on windows xp sp2..and it didn't work

if it worked for u, can u tell me the version number ? do u use a cracked version or an original copy ?

for more details..I use a modded version called : GTA SAN ANDREAS EXTREME 2011

and i think it's version 1.01 EN or EU as i remembered..

any info u need more ?

no, a cracked version..The game have been released form 8 years man, how can I have one just for now...

I'm really can't find the reason why it doesn't work..

I play GTA IV in the highest setting by a 35 fps with a resolution 1280 x 1024

and I can't run that old one !! just someone give me a reason..

runs fine on my win 7... last time i had it installed anyway...
just follow the errors, via the error console in controlpanel/admintools/event viewer...
you will probably find its just direct x or 1 of the vcredists is missing,

You can also try and run Virtual XP to run the game.

Did he admit to having a non-legit copy of the game? if so, you're continuing to help him?

I got a legit copy (but that shouldn't make a difference) run the game as administrator and compatibility mode and XP (Service Pack 3) that works for me, it just runs it in the 32bit environment.
if that still doesnt work then i dont know what will as it worked for me.
but it may be because the crack you use is incompatible with win7 64bit
