Hi, I would first mention that the solution below will work only if you do not have any other issue with the game. If yes you must first solve all the other errors, and then come to these solutions.

Method 1:

  • On the Desktop, you will see My Computers. Right-click on that.
  • Select
  • Click
  • Under performance click on “Settings” and then click on Data Execution Prevention.
  • Tap on “turn on DEP for all programs and services……”
  • Here you can Add, browse to your cracked .exe in the GTA folder.
  • Tap on
  • Restart your PC and then check.

Method 2:

Restart your computer in clean boot and see if the error arises. This method of starting the computer will help you to remove software conflicts.

If you tried installing “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas”, unfortunately, it doesn’t support Windows 7 and higher. The game “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” supports Windows 2000 and Windows XP only. It requires 1 GHz or faster Intel Pentium 3 or equivalent AMD Athlon processor, 256 MB RAM, Microsoft DirectX 9-compatible video card with at least 64 MB video RAM, 3.6 GB free space, and sound card.

If you want to play it on Windows 7 or Windows 10, try starting the game in compatibility mode for Windows XP. To do this, right-click the “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” icon or shortcut then select “Properties”. In the “Properties” dialog, go to “Compatibility” tab. Under “Compatibility mode” section, check “Run this program in compatibility mode for” then select “Windows XP” from the dropdown list.

Click “OK” then start the game. See if this works. If the problem continues, install Windows XP on a virtual machine then install the game there. This should fix the problem. Download Oracle VirtualBox for the virtual machine.
