I recently reinstalled Windows Vista to my laptop, and with it GTA:SA. It's Second Edtion (2.0)
Every time I start the game, before it gets to the main menu after the splash screen, the game crashes to the desktop with "GTA_SA.exe has stopped working"
I've uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, cleaned the registry with CCleaner, ran in compatibility mode for Win98 and XP, running as admin. There's also no "gta_sa.set" in the user files to delete. It still will not run.
