What are your computers specifications? If you have an old computer with an old graphics card, SA may not like that.

This type of error usually comes up if it doesn't want to run on your PC, or if some of the files have been edited wrongly.

Thats all fine.

I presume you haven't tried to install any mods, or had it installed previously. I also assume the installation went fine, with no errors.

If you have Windows XP Pro (I don't think this will work on XP Home) then do this to find out what's wrong:
1) Go Start, click Run, type "eventvwr.msc" and click OK
2) That will bring up the Event Viewer
3) Double click on "Application"
4) You will see all your computer's errors
5) If you see one of the list has the error icon, double click on it, and see if it says anything about gtasa.exe. If it doesn't go to step 6.
6) Double click on the top one in the list if they're all the i bubble, and press the big down arrow until the big grey box says something about gtasa.exe
7) If you find the exact error that gtasa.exe had, copy everything that is in the grey box, and post it on here. That should tell us exactly what's going wrong when it dies.

Wow, somebody actually managed to follow my instructions :P

Not sure how good "version 0.0.0.0" is for the application though. Check that the files actually copied into the c:\program files\rockstar games folder properly, and that the DVD isn't scratched etc etc

Other than that, I'll have to ask some other members to help out. Sorry I couldn't help, but there's a lot of information there for us to go on.

Calm down, somebody will read this topic, and may be able to help or point you in the right direction.

Check you have the latest drivers, and that you have DirectX 9.0c installed. It's on the SA DVD.

Glad you got your problem sorted.

Try not to discuss cracks and things on these forums, but since you own a legitimate copy of the game and you're only using it to fix a problem it's fine.
