When i try to uninstall GTA from the disk or from control panel the wizrd shows but it goes about a quarter of the way then closes.

Ive removed my rockstar games directory and everything i could find relating to gta. It is not in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE in regedit and i dont know whats causing it. There is no error code the uninstall window just closes and doesnt uninstall.

Heres a picture of it in contoll panel.

How was the game first installed?
What is your OS?
Did you put the Disc into the drive and use the resulting menu to uninstall?

if the game was downloaded, then just remove them manually.

Game was first installed through a disk.
OS = vista

The simply way to uninstall is:

QUOTE (girishb @ Posted Dec 15, 2008 15:42)

If you're on Vista, you'll need to do this:
1) Uninstall SA.
2) Delete the installation folder if it still exists. (e.g. C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas).
3) Delete the Virtual Store copy of the installation folder too. The Appdata folder might be hidden. (e.g. C:\Users\???\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas).
4) Delete the gta_sa.set file from your user files folder.
5) Reboot.
6) Reinstall SA. {if you want to}


To Unhide Folders:
START > User > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Folder Options> Show Hidden files and Folders.

well it's better to get the full rip of the game,because if you get that you won't have to worry about uninstalling or taking up too much memory.I have the full rip and it's a better benifit

'full rip'. I don't understand what it is your talking about. Poster wishes to remove the game.
