First of all, you need to search Google for the "GTA SA Downgrade Patch". It's about 10mb and will change the version of your copy of GTA SA from 2.0, to 1.0 or 1.1. Sounds crazy? To downgrade something? Maybe it is - But it's essential to getting Control Center to work!
You've done that.
You now need to search for, and download, three 'OCX' files that are infuriatingly missing from Windows 7 64bit.
A good place to get them from is the OCXdump site (Google it, or Google the individual file names)
Once you've downloaded these - You need to move them from your download folder to the following location:
You may find that you already have one of them in there - In which case, when you're prompted to "Replace" or "Don't Copy" - Don't Copy.
Next - Press 'Start' (You know, the button at the bottom left hand corner of your desktop) and type in 'Run'. Open 'Run'.
Type in the following (Or just Copy and Paste from here):
**YOU MAY RECEIVE AN ERROR MESSAGE EACH TIME** - But it seems to make no difference whatsoever.
Now, here's where my assistance gets a little... ! Unsure! Because I did quite a few things after the above failed to fix the problem immediately - I can't be sure what I've suggested below, worked (Though something did!)
1. Uninstall any previously installed GTA SA Control Center files then restart. Reinstall the Control Center.
It seems to me that you MUST be IN THE GAME for the Control Center to initiate the first time (If it's a new game - In the alley, before you get on that bike) When Tenpenny's thrown you out of the car and you gain control of CJ first - Press 'Esc' then switch to the desktop (Alt+Tab together).
Or whenever a previously saved game has loaded - And you're able to control CJ's movements.
2. If not! Try asking Windows to help you find the best Compatibility settings by right-clicking the GTA SA Control Center shortcut and selecting 'Troubleshoot Compatibility' (You may have to try more than one suggested fix)
If it still isn't working - Go here: http://www.gtagarage...ow.php?id=11359
And download the 'Source Code' (11mb)
Extract the zip compressed download and look for the GTA SA Control Center executable in there, and try and get THAT compatible (As per step 2)
Try the above and get back to me if it still doesn't want to work.
(By the way, I found the information about putting the OCX files in SysWOW - I'm not claiming false authorship there! )

|I´ve used this in my old computer that had XP but now I have new computer with Vista and it won´t even start. Why? What I´m missing?|
I had the same problem and i fixed it with this file: mscomctl.ocx
You have to download this file from here:Press Here and put it in the ControlCenter folder.
It worked for me...

(i) I managed to get this to work on my Win7 rig. To do this I (a) copied the files from my XP machine, and plopped in a directory, (b) copied the OCX files from my Win32 directory on XP and dropped them in my WinWOW64 directory, as well as in the root of the control center, and © ran compatibility setting scanner on the control centre exe and it found WinXP-SP2, and viola! It now works!
(ii) Mind you, it does seem -- or maybe it's SA on Win7 -- a little less stable. I guess that's to be expected. ADDENDUM: I've found the handbrake is permanently on, the "vertical mouse" 10x more sensitive than the horizontal which makes aiming next to impossible. I think it's XP VM time. I really don't think this is a viable idea.
(iii) I've used this since I've been playing SA and it is undeniably AWESOME. I'm sorry to read the author has been forced to abandon it on account of family life, but he wrote an incredibly useful tool, and for that I thank him.
(iv) There were consoles too for VC and III, which were similarly awesome. It was using the console on III that meant I played that thing for over a thousand hours -- the most I have played any game ever. It's a shame game publishers appear set on preventing this sort of hackery going on because this is the best use of games: hacking them. Some of the vids I've seen of IV hacked MP sessions convince me of this. I'm glad R* didn't make it too hard for the IV hackers.
Anyway. Hope this helps.
