Hi, i am new BUT i have went through everyones posts about the same topics hoping i could find a solution and came up with nothing.

 

i have a new compaq with win vista and nvidia graphics card. (walmart special) the game i bought (at walmart) says its vista compatible and it has worked very well UNTILL i tried adding vehicle mods and i know i done screwed that up.i installed and reinstalled several times even deleting the gta_set files numerously AND my save games folder AND every possible trace when i did a search in my pc. im missing something. can anyone help? and i know the game works i been playin it for a week A LOT! smile.gif the vehicle mod was my fault i was trying to add a car and accidently took files from 2 car files without noticing my dumb mistake and yea.. any help? oh i also rebooted and if this helps..i need the cd to run this game otherwise it tells me it wont start without the cd. GTASA ver:2 for win vista. and my dumb*ss didnt backup files. more description: the song plays and the load screen starts (after i clicked play game) and loads almost halfway aaaand gets stuck n freezes. ok thanx ppl smile.gif

Ok, there is something extra you need to do on vista for installation to work properly.

 

Uninstall SA

Delete the San Andreas folder

Delete the .set file (located in My Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files)

Search for a folder called Appdata.

Now open it, then follow this path from that folder.

Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Rockstar Games

There is the san andreas folder. Delete it.

Now install the game

 

Tell me if it works.

If you wanna mod the game, you need to downgrade it to v1. Search Google for a downgrader.

 

And some mods are corrupt and can crash your game

ok i did everything you said accept for the appdata search. i did a search and tons of things came up.. nothing by itself says appdata.

It worked in my vista, but try this path.

 

C:\Users\Your user name\Appdata\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Rockstar Games.

 

Then the san andreas folder should be there.

aaah nope..nothing..no trace of gta of any sort..even the vehicles and cheats i had in notpad and winzip i got rid of. u think maybe a system restore to an earlier date would work? and then install it?

System restore yes try that. You could try making a new user account, then install it on that, it should work on that user.

ok i went thru hell and still nothing..i did system restore BUT since this pc is new.i dont have a restore point at all for any time before the installation of this game. so it didnt help any doing it for a time during the time i had the game already. there has to be something else missing. maybe something in my computer, not in the gta software. i wonder if it corrupted a registry. ill check that next.i been here at this pc since 10 last night figuring this out im dedicated as a mofo

Well then, clean out your registry if you have a registry cleaner and then try reinstalling.

Yes, watch out. An American could crush you with their wallet.

The dollar is worth so little at the moment they need to have a lot of them to get any decent value biggrin.gif

Stay on topic, guys.

@silky_camaro: Have you tried creating a new user account and installing the game on it as already suggested?

And next time, don't double post. Use the EDIT button. It's your friend.

sorry girl.

If you would have looked at his user account you would find out that Girishb is male. Not female.

 

As for your problem just try to reinstall the game.

He believes he's drinking Mountain Dew. tounge.gif This guy seems to be high.

@silky_camaro: What I meant was create a new user account and try installing SA on that. You won't be hurting your 'personal' computer by creating a new user.

If you aren't high, you'd notice that it's girishb and nowhere in my name do I have a 'L'. Get it?

You can always get rid of the previous account. Continue with the new one.
