Sim City 3000



I have just installed SimCity 3000 and when I click on the shortcut nothing happens, running the exe file for the game doesn't work, the egg timer displays for a couple of seconds and thats is, can anyone help?
Okay,I'll installedit on my system,and it runs fine,so it's not an Xp system problem(hopefully!).So these are my ideas;
-Reinstall the game.The .exe file may be corrupt,or something.This sometimes helps.
-Download any patches available for it.You may be having some problem I'm not.
-Apply the dreaded Program Compatibility Wizard to the .exe file.This seems like a hit-or-miss option ,though.

That's all I can think of.Hope it helps.


The same thing happens with The Sims Hot Date. If you are running multiple users, ie you have to click a name for windows to log in, you must log in as Administrator. On WinXP Prof hit CTRL,ALT,DELETE twice at the logon screen. Then username: Aministrator and Password: whatever you set up when installed. Then it may work, it did for Hot Date. Although I am not sure if that works or is needed on WinXP Home Edition, as I only have Prof...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
