What are your system specifications?

Have you tried running the game in Windows 98 compatibility? Also, right-click on gta_sa.exe and select 'Run as' Administrator.

 

In some cases in SA, the game has been reported to work when installed into My Documents. Try that too.

 

I also hope that you have disabled UAC.

and whats uac ??

UAC stands for User Account Control. It's a crappy feature of Vista which is better turned off. Go to Control panel > User Account Control and turn it off.

Run in 98 Compatibility Mode

DON'T Run as Administrator

Uncheck the "Read Only" box in the Properties Menu of "gta-vc.exe"

Try re-installing Vista. I find Vista to be a annoying, if you want to play VC, Or SA, Because sometimes it mucks up, and you have to re-install Vista.

 

If that doesn't work (like it didn't for me with SA), I made another partition, installed XP In that one (So I had vista and XP both on my PC), And it worked in XP.

Are your graphics card drivers up to date. The games work fine for me on Vista without disabling UAC and 98 Compatibility mode.

 

Why do you reinstall the whole OS if a game mucks up confused.gif

I usually re-install because when I try everything I can fix of, and it no longer works, usually re-installing fixes it, like when it happened to me with GTA3 On Vista. I suppose not everyone is needed to re-install the OS. Also, my install of Vista seemed to be faulty, as when I re-installed, my problems were fixed. dontgetit.gif Like my friend never needed to, but I had to after a while.

 

@thagame2008: When you update drivers, you need to download drivers for Vista, not XP or any other OS.
