I downloaded GTA san andreas from steam and it is recognized by nvidia geforce experience. I booted into the game 1 time and everything seemed perfect. Then i closed the game and windows 10 told me they applied some compatibility settings to the game. And when i tried to play the game, it wouldn't boot (thanks windows). I have already tried running the game as administrator, sfc/scannow, and checking the registry to see if there was a problem with .exe files (there is no problem with it). The geforce experience however still detects the game and gives me the full path to the main .exe file, but the play button does nothing. Any fix?

Windows didn't do that on its own, you clicked yes on the prompt asking you to do it.
Anyway, they can be easily disabled from the exe properties like @tech3475 said.

now it says that i need a new app to open the .exe file
go to my documents/my games/ your gta game and delete the folder (back it up if you care) then uninstall the game from steam and reinstall the game from steam then try again
also if you pirated it run it as administrator.

the problem with the app to run the .exe files dissapeared by typing "%1" %* into the exefile default value. But that specific file will still refuse to open. Should i just get a clean .exe from the internet?

Setting compatibility mode to windows 7 and running as admin solved the problem

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space

    Nor clothes 🤮 . Saves on time, soap, water and money having to wash them. :D
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @rqkaiju2, Physical media is a great source for archiving your data, none of that cloud storage shiz.
