Run as an adminstrator?
I sold my soul to the devil. I'm going to hell. I'm headed to hell. I want the money, the women, the fortune, and the fame. That means I'll end up burning in hell scorching in flames. Satan'll be in to see me later to see if I'm interested in being partners. Devil worshippin', Satan music.

Downgrade to 1.0 and maybe it'll work then?

Make a new user on your PC and run it there. If it doesn't work, then there's some problem with your game, I guess.

There must be something wrong with your game.
Try with a FRESH NEW COPY of the game.

Run the game into compatibility mode since it is an older game. Right gta.exe then the properties and the option should pop up
