Windows 7 CompatabilitySep 10, 2010
To start out: GTA SA is one of the best games I've ever played. I beat the game years ago and STILL play it on a daily basis.
I recently got a new computer with Windows 7 on it and had a few problems getting it to start. After hours of googling and tons of dead-end leads and failed atempts I finally got it working:
It is important to run BOTH the setup.exe AND the game launcher in Compatibility mode (Windows XP SP3).
(I had been problem-solving with an install that wasn't run in an Windows XP shell.)
I hope this helped someone.

Oh The Joy!Mar 09, 2011
This has to be one of the greatest games of all time.....I made a mistake when I sold my xbox and this game...I never knew that years later I would be at it again. GTA:SA is very broad; the map is broad and the game is long,you can learn new fighting styles, get haircuts, buy clothes, mod cars, race cars, have gang wars and fight for turf, make your own radio station with songs from your pc, ride almost anything from bicycles to four-wheelers to airplanes to tractors, go skydiving, run in marathons, and much more. There is a pretty nice selection of weapons to choose from. Multi-player is awesome. This game is also compatible with pc controllers so have at it!

How to use with Windows 7Oct 18, 2012
By Forrest Williams
What a great game. Between the music and the storyline, you can't get board playing this game
To make it work on Windows 7, this is what I did-
Right click on "Play GTA San Andreas"
Go to properties
Go to compatability
Run program in Windows XP service pack 2
Check "Disable Visual Themes"
Check "Disable Desktop Composition"
Run the progam as an administator.
It works for me, hope it works for you
