    Has anyone been able to get SimCity 2000 to run on Windows XP? The DOS version works fine, just with no music, but with the Windows version, if I click setup, nothing happens, and I have to go to task manager and end the task, and it says "The request to end the selected 16 bit task has timed out. The Win 16 Subsystem may be unstable. Press OK to terminate the Win 16 Subsystem or Cancel to leave it running."
     
  2. Have you tried runing in compatibilty mode?

    OK get this. I had launched the setup program like 5 times last night and each time it did nothing and I ended the task. Now, almost 24 hours later I'm writing an article and all of a sudden setup launches and I successfully installed it. WTF?
