    I have tried this and still it does not work. The game discs are not faulty as they have functioned just fine on my previous computer.

    My copy of Sim City 4 (the original version, not Deluxe) will not run on my PC after the installation. It has worked on my previous system, so I know there is nothing wrong with the copy I have purchased.

    Sim City 4 does not run on my PC after installation, but it works just fine on my laptop. I use XP for both machines and my PC is more qualified to run the game than my laptop.

  • jacobamccull Jul 27, 2009

    I have already done all this and much more, and nothing seems to be working.

  • jacobamccull Jul 28, 2009

    Is there any way you might be able to try to solve the problem using a screen sharing session?

  • jacobamccull Jul 29, 2009

    No, none whatsoever. Nothing happens once I double-click the icon, either the one on the desktop or the shortcut located in the game's folder.

Ensure that the computer corresponds to minimum specifications required by the game.

Try uninstalling and re-installing the game.

If this does not fix the problem, then try reinstalling video adapter drivers, and updating direct X to the latest version.

Make sure that Sim City is allowed through your firewall. If it is not n the list already, then add new listing and make sure the check box has a check in it.

Also double check which file you put it in. Change files locations if necessary.

I have a quick guess... since you havent stated it....
Your previous PC was Windows XP or earlier... and your new one is Vista??
If that is the case - your Software will not work with vista.
XP and previous operating systems run 32 bit programs.
Vista is 64 bit.

Thanks

Hi. Go to the control panel and click on remove programs. Then remove the entire Sim City contents. Now reinsert the disc and reload the program being sure that no other programs are operating at the same time.

THis should do it for you but if it doesn't, return the program as it is faulty.

Probably my Computer Ignorence. I just purchase Sim City 4. I have to load it everytime I want to play it. Isn't there a way to get a shortcut. I have a Gateway, running Vista 64.


usually when you first install it, it gives you the option to create a shortcut option to be made on your computer desktop but that's the shortest way to go into playing the game-it still has to load regardless just due to the fact that certain games (such as the Sims) require a great deal more memory and RAM (Random Access Memory) than other games.

I have a copy of SIM CITY 4 DELUXE EDITION and I dont have the install code. What can I do? Where can I get the code so I can play it?


If you have the original discs you can call EA and talk to them they should be able to read the disc codes on the data side and give them to you.. If you don't have the original ones than go to any good warez website should give it to you..
or check this link half way down the page you will see it. http://www.siliconguide.com/qa/forum/messages/748.shtml

My Sim City 4 wont start after intstallation


have you tried installing the same game on a different system?
if you tried installing your game and it works, then there must have been a problem with your system,
check the system requirements of your game if its elligible to run on your system.
try to install the game in a different directory might solve your problem.
And also, check your system if it has alot of memory. :)

No Disc in drive E


If you installed the game using a cd then let the cd remain in the drive when you start the game, If you installed it from the HDD itself you will have to mount it to the virtual drive and start playing.

Hope this solves the issue

Sim City4 Deluxe Edition-D:/ not a valid Win32 application.


I also have Sim City 4 Deluxe edition, and the package came with 2 CDs. Which were, the download and installation CD, and the gameplay CD. Now if you put in the Game Play CD without putting the Download and Installation CD in first, then that message might come. And if not, then the Gmae Play CD might be damaged, you can try rubbing alcohal and blowing on the CD, but if that doesn't work, see if you still have a warranty and try replacing the CD.

Hope that helped!!!!! Please Rate!!!!!!
