Fix for crash on load in Windows 7/8
 
If you're currently crashing on load (around 80%) and are running Windows 7 (a problem detailed further here). Then try either of these steps:
  • Reinstall SA into a different directory
  • Rename your current SA directory

Tested as working for me and some others, post if it works or not.

Thanks. o/

More detailed explanation -

Go into your C:/Program Files/Rockstar Games (or where ever you keep the GTA SA directory)

Add a "2" to the end of your directory name so it says, "GTA San Andreas" to "GTA San Andreas 2".

Right click your SAMP and/or GTA SA shortcut and in the "target" and "Start in" boxes, add a 2 to the end of "GTA San Andreas" again. (example - Target: "C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas 2\samp.exe")

SAMP will say it can't locate your directory and a menu will come up asking you to select the directory. Select the "GTA San Andreas 2" folder.

You should be able to play now.

This did in fact work for me. Thanks for posting this, I was quite afraid that I wouldn't be able to play SA-MP any longer!

I had a problem where it reverted to broken for some reason - just wanted to say that renaming it AGAIN fixed that. :D

Not working for me. The GTASA process starts but will not run. Running the RC.

Installing GTA:SA by running setup.exe in Windows XP or 2000 compatibility worked for me.

I have no mods, I've reinstalled SAMP and GTASA several times, I've tried renaming the directories, I've deleted the gta set file, I don't have any of the mentioned .dll's, I've run it as administrator, run it in compatibility mode for every other version of Windows, and set the user permissions all up to Administrator, tried running it without visual themes, have used both the 02 and 03 client versions, and probably a few other things I can't remember yet SAMP still crashes at 80% with this error. Anything else?

Running Vista Ultimate 64-bit, Radeon 4870HD, Phenom 9850 2.5ghz Quad, 4GB DDR2.
