GTA San Andreas with Windows 8.1: Requires at least DirectX version 9.0
Hello everyone,

A few weeks ago I had to reinstall my system, I was running Windows 8.1 (upgraded from Windows 8) and enjoyed playing GTA SA alot those days. But I reinstalled and just installed straight Windows 8.1 (as I have got a dreamspark account, I get free licenses) and though of installing GTA SA again. This was all fine until I tried to launch it. I got this error saying: 'GTA SA requires at leats DirectX version 9.0' (pic: http://i.imgur.com/aag7QR5.png). So I updated DirectX and still nothing, tried all things I could find on google from compatibility mode to reinstalling Silverlight. Nothing seems to help. So now I am here asking you guys. Does any of you know a way to fix this? It will amaze me and I will be extremely thankfull! (Maybe even a free game for the one who tells me how to fix this)

So let me know if you got something, I would be grateful to get it running again as I love the game.

Thanks in advance!

step 2: install a windows 7 is0
step 3: install the game to the virtual machine

That's not optimal as you will be playing in a virtual machine.

Install DirectPlay from Control Panel => Programs and Features => Turn Windows features on or Off => Legacy components => DirectPlay
