Re: can't install and play game simcity 4
It is simple... You will have to go in the Program Files folder, and find the SimCity 4 folder, and then look for the file that you start the game with. This can easily be found by right clicking on the icon that the game created in your start menu or desktop. Click properties and then click Find Target. Now, when you have the file, right click on the file and click properties. Then click on the Compatability tab and click Run this program in compatibility mode for: and choose what you want. Click apply and ok. Then try it...

To play a game on PC, you need to pass few bunch marks.
The Game should be Properly installed and registered. If the Game is not installed into Computer yet, Please insert the Game Disc. There will a setup file (Installer) to install the game. Many commercial games requires registration before we could play the game.
Your PC must meet the hardware resource requirements for the Game. Many Games are Resource intensive. Many need extra hardware resources like a Good Graphics card, Physical Memory (RAM) etc. Many games will specify their minimum hardware configuration required to play the game smoothly, on their Disc Packs.
Your Game and Operating System should be Authentic If your game disc is not authentic or legal, Operating System will prevent the game from running. The same will do for the Operating Systems also. So if you got the Disc illegally, you may need to crack or patch it run.
Auto running Feature should be turned on. Many Operating Systems features Auto Running the Disc. That is, if you put the disc on computer, it will run automatically without any user interactions. If your Current Operating System does not have Auto Running Feature (Many new Operating Systems have this feature and its set to On by default) or its set to disabled mode, you can browse the disc and run it manually. You can find the executables in the Disc to run the game. Usual Autorun executables have name one of Installer, Autorun, setup.
Your Anti-virus may interrupt the game. If you have an anti-virus software, then it may interact with the game's normal play and stop it from playing. This is due to the fact that, many Anti-virus Software mistakenly think the game as a virus and stop it from running. So if you have an anti-virus software, please set it to Game Mode or Disabled Mode

Ahh i see.... Starting with windows 2000/XP. Windows no longer supports DOS... Im kinda sad about that myself D= but it doesnt end there for you my friend. Organ trail is a great game.
My tip is for you to get a program called DOS box from source forge. Simple google DOS BOX. Install the program and run the program from within dosbox. If you dont know how to run dos box simply drag the EXE you are trying to run into the window. Give it a try and it will work trust me. GL in the game....
