So I recently got a new PC with Windows 8 on it, and now I wanted to install the Sims 1. It worked on my Windows 7 computer, and when my brother installed it on his Windows 8 PC it worked absolutely fine!
My PC however, doesn't even want to start the Setup!!! I click on setup, nothing happens. I try to fix compadability issues with it, nothing happens, I try to run it in Administrator mode; nothing happens.
I don't know what to do, it's just the regular Sims 1 CD (No deluxe or so), and I really want to get this game to work!
Make sure to run everything in compatibility mode - if you have an original The Sims disk, use compatibility for Win 98 if you can. If you have a Sims Complete Collection disk, run it in compatibility mode for Windows XP SP2 or SP3. Also, ALWAYS run the installer and the Sims.exe program as an admin.
That really sucks. I just wasted a ton of money buying them all.
