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...

My conformation code for simcity 4 deluxe isnt working. how do i get a new one?


Confirmation code(s) are NOT used for SimCity 4. That method is only found on programs requiring online activation.

SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition uses the 20-character REGISTRATION code found on the back of the CD case. If you've lost the case, you're out of luck.

The good news is - Being a very old game, it'll be very cheap to buy If you can find it online.

You can do 2 things:
1 - try to run them in XP mode  - right click on its icon, then Properties, then Compatibility, check 'Run this program in compatibility mode for' and select Windows XP in the drop down menu and finally at the bottom of the compatibility tab, check 'Run this program as administrator'.
2 - install http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/ , configure it and in it install XP and all the soft with problems, starting with the games.

INSTALL BUT CAN'T PLAY


if you have XP you uninstall your game. reboot and press F9. go to safemode and fire up the autorun. if nothing happens when you press install you restart your computer and log in your normal user. Then you install your game and it should work perfectly =) had the same problem in red alert 2 and after i did that i had no problems.

but if you can install it in safe mode just continue and it also should work =) (remember to install it for all users)
