My apologies the clarification request and that I did not read the topic for this post was " Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for Windows" :P

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas also uses Securom.

Please read the below mentioned. The same solution which I had posted for the game Juiced.

The solution is the same for all games using Securom copy protectionsoftware.


Securom is a copy protectionsoftware that sometimes conflicts with any background applications,multiple disc drives, virtual drives, USB storage devices (Pen drivesand USB Hard drives).

This however can be solved once you submit a analysis file to the Securom Support.

To extract the Analysis file you can follow the below mentioned.

Open Game folder
Locate "GTA_SA.EXE" file and then right-click on it context menu will appear
Select "Launch Analysis" within that menu
After the selection a disclaimer window will appear on your screen, to proceed, click the "YES" button
This 'analysis' will now generate an 'AnalysisLog.sr0' file within the root directory your C: drive.

Go to your "C" drive to locate the "AnalysisLog.sr0" file and zip the file compression utility programs such as WinZip, Winace or Pkzip

-Submit the Zip file to: support@securom.com for evaluation along with "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas " in subject line.

Securomsupport will then analyze the file for conflicts and send you a newexecutable file. Once you have the new file, extract and paste theexecutable file in the root directory of the game.

Is there a way i can play warlords battlecry without disk?


yes their is a way but without the original disk you may not have any luck.

but their are things called cd emulators.
If basicaly tricks your computer into thinking you have a cd/dvd drive on your comptuer you really don't.

you then can find or make .images or .roms of your cd using programs like nero burning rom. you can load and save the disk on your computer that way. Then you use one of your cd-emulators and load that rom into it. Doing that your comptuer things your disk that you have bought is in your computer.
But thier is no legal way to trick your computer into thinking you have a disk for something aleady installed on your computer.

please take the time to rate me

The Sims Mega Deluxe Problems


Answer A crash at this exact point during the loading screen is typically caused by file corruption. This can be caused by downloads, an improper save, etc. There is a chance, however, that the crash can be attributed to a conflict with processes running in the background or the version of video or sound card drivers that are installed.
  1. End background tasks . This will help to prevent conflicts with other programs running in the background as well as free up resources for the game, making it easier for your computer to run.
  2. Try using the -w and -nosound " target="_blank">shortcut switches. This will allow you to troubleshoot and bypass conflicts with the video and/or sound card drivers.
If these steps do not resolve the issue, this means it is, in fact, a corrupt file issue. In this case you would need to uninstall the game completely and reinstall the game. This should resolve the crashing issue.

Im having problemx installibg sims deluxe edition


Dear mz_bridg_ett,First of all you need to check that your computer hardware/ the entire computer meets the specifications of the game. you will be looking at things like

CPU speed -- the higher the number in MHz you have the better
RAM speed -- this is your computers' memory, the bigger the number in MB/ GB and MHz the better
HDD size -- this is your hard disk drive, bigger the number in GB the better. . . . typical size is 120-500Gb and will be enough for the game . . . . . . more than enough even with Windows (EWWW YUCK!! ) installed on it.
GPU speed-- this is your graphics disply, and like the rest, the bigger the number the better, best to check out your specifications before you attempt to play the game.... ideally you want a direct x 9.0c card or better still direct x 10 when in windows (YUCK) go to start>run>command>dxdiag ... this will check that for you

Right with that lot done, open your CD drive, and put the install disc into the drive, and it should start to run automatically. . . . if not go to my computer and find the CD drive letter and double click it. . . . . if you are a smarty pants like me, then you can go to start>run>command>X:\autorun.exe...........substitute value "X" for your drive letter, you can also type....start>run>command>X:\setup.exe..... for Vista (awwww ewww awful) then you need to go start>all programs>accessories>command prompt> command.com...... then follow the above for other version of windows.

game should start to load, ask you where you want to install it, and then for the password/ product key of the game, which you can find on the back of the manual or on the reverse inside of the CD case.

enter the code then hit ok

When this is done, itll ask you to enter the game disk/ play disk if you dont have to reboot your computer, but i always reboot first anyway.

enter the play disk and run it like you did before with the install disk, unless you are one of the many masses that add shortcuts on your menu and systems to start up your programs/ warez.

if this doesnt work, try cleaning the disk, try installing it to different locations, even get diagnostic tools to check your computer. . . .

definitely try all above before feeding the game disks to the dog.

I hope this is the fixya for you

yours sincerely

Oz

Gran theft auto san andreas


Your going to take your disk (if muiltiple disks, then take the first disk or any disk that says something like "install" on it or something) and simply insert it into your CD-ROM drive. A screen is going to pop up. It should be a GTA San Andreas screen. There should be a button that says "install". Click that and simply go through the process. If there is any option, once you press the "install" button, to do a default or standard install or a custom install, just choose default or standard. The game should start to install. If there are multiple disks then in the middle of the install its going to ask for the other disk(s). What you do is when the window pops up asking for another disk, just eject the disk that is already in your computer and insert the other one. Once the other disk is in, close the CD-ROM drive and it should continue the install.
