  3. You need to install the files you downloaded. Just run the installer.

  5. just tested it

    works fine

    if you have the directx already it will say so and wont download it

    what do you mean by it hasnt worked?

    didnt run?

    or said you already have the required directx?

    or something else?

  9. I had to copy dx3dx9_27.dll into the GTA:SA game folder of my non-Steam version to get it to work. Windows 10 actually comes with all of the DX9 files. It's just that after KB3081424, DX9 games can't see into the folder where they are.

    Or in the GTA forums, someone said:
    Quote:
    In your GTA:SA folder d3d9.dll is the DirectX 9 file required, however, GTA:SA doesn't detect it. To fix this problem, rename it to d3d9_32.dll
