Default [HELP ASAP] gta_sa.exe isn't working/opening.

Going to make this as brief as possible.

I was running on Windows XP yesterday & I upgraded to Windows 7 Professional. I re-downloaded GTA:SA from the internet through a mediafire link. It comes with the basic files/folders, here's a picture ( http://prntscr.com/6ifvxe ) - I extract all of it into a folder located on my Desktop & install SA:MP 0.3z - Afterwards, I click on a server > Click "Connect" > & NOTHING happens, it's like I never clicked connect. the gta_sa.exe doesn't pop up in my processes on the task manager or nothing. I need this fixed ASAP. I have no modifications or nothing. It's a CLEAN gta directory with a newly installed SA:MP client. i've tried rebooting my computer, reinstalling the directory, reinstalling the sa:mp client. everything.

Pirated versions aren't supported

Try downloading a different pirated version over a torrent.

I had a version that wouldn't work too, I downloaded from an another link and it worked.

Run as admin then, but anything else, is going to be stonewalled since you openly state you copied the game.
