Windows 7: GTA:SA Install

GTA:SA Install

Well, I just installed Windows 7, and I'm loving it so far.

Unfortunately, I just tried installing GTA San Andreas, and the installer reports an error at the splash screen. I've done some Googling, but I can't find anything specific for the game. Help?

Code:
Error Code:    -5005 : 0x8007000d
Error Information:
>Kernel\KernelMedia.cpp (95)
>SetupDLL\SetupDLL.cpp (1654)
PAPP:Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
PVENDOR:Rockstar Games (http://www.rockstargames.com/)
PGUID:D417C96A-FCC7-4590-A1BB-FAF73F5BC98E
$10.50.0.125
@Windows XP Service Pack 2 (2600) BT_OTHER 38930.26819
I tried compatibility mode for XP, SP2/SP3, Vista SP2/SP3, 98, 2000, the works. I think you could safely say I'm well out of ideas.

If I remember correctly, the game simply doesn't work in Win7.

Ah. Oh well, I guess I can always dual boot then.

Doesn't work? LOL I can run my (heavily) modded GTA San Andreas with my 64-bit Windows 7 just fine. All crashes or bugs I have or would encounter were or are all mod-related. Same goes to my other hundred fellow players and modders at GTAForums.

@Vesko96: How about running the game with admin privileges? (right-click, click "Run as Administrator"; or check the "Run this program as administrator" box in its Compatibility settings) It works wonders.

If you're running a version higher than 1.0, try "downgrading" or better yet replace your copy with a version 1.0 one. As far as I know, versions 1.1 and higher are very unstable when run under 7.

Thanks for the advice. And yes, I've tried running it in Admin mode, but to no avail.

Also, I'm running the original 1.0 version. Although I'm not sure, where can I check?

Like I said, looks like it's gonna be dual-booting for me.

This is kind of strange for me actually. Windows 7 is suppose to be better at running GTA San Andreas than Vista and, in some cases, XP too.

Can you post your specs? Do you have any mods or add-ons installed? Also try reinstalling GTA:SA, that is if you're still thinking of playing it under 7.
