GTA SA doesn't work :(
Posted 16 June 2013 - 03:29 PM
It says the there is this "d3dx9_40.dll" missing. But the DLL is in the system32 AND San Andreas folder and registered in the registry:
Someone got an Idea what I'm doing wrong?

|Are you running your computer in "safe mode"?|
That's Windows 8, not safe mode, and normally I'd really doubt someone would run games in safe mode as there are no graphics drivers. Wouldn't make a difference to that DLL.

|I play SA on 8 so that's definitely not the problem.|
Actually, depending on the OP's system specs, that might be the problem, as I from what i've read on here about Windows 8, it seems to me like it is the new Windows Vista-ie. it has compatibility issues with certain games if you have a lower to mid-end system..? Seems like Windows 7 handles the compatibility part a lot better(like XP did in the day)...? What all changed OS wise between 7 and 8? Curious..
So, @OP:First, Is this the Retail(DVD) version OR a Downloaded version?
If Downloaded, from where?
If Retail, IS this the Original DVD being used OR a No-DVD crack OR a Copy of said DVD?
Any Daemon tools or the like installed on PC?-these can cause problems with games..
You left out A LOT of information that is helpful in determining a solution to your problem, and they are:
What is your Processor?
What is the Processor Speed?
What is the Video card?
What is the Total Vram?
What is the Dedicated vram?
What is your OS?
Do you have the latest SP for the OS?
Any Screenshots OR Videos to prove the error/problem?
**To find above info, go to Start, Run(if XP)/Search(If Vista, 7, or 8) and type in DXDIAG and press Enter, the first page is the OS, Ram, Processor information and the Display tab is the Video card information..**
