I dont know what to tell you I have simcity3000 and it was not installed I read this post and stayed on-line installed it and ran it right away without any problems ........ it runs smoother and better than it did on Win98SE I never touched anything just installed and ran it sorry guys dont know whats wrong here ....... and I have a dinosauer of a puter Aptiva 400mhz....with ATI crappy 8mb video card (soon to be changed) thats my mext purchase.......... good luck with that problem
I know this sounds rather dumd but have you ever tried XP without serious tweaking??? First month that I used it I installed everything and tested it on the speeds, all was OK. After I started tweaking alot of games wouldn't load anymore or they became slow as hell. Especially with the services things can go wrong, I'm only using Tweak UI and a few register hacks.
BTW: I'm playing SC3K World Edition and never had any problems
I am running p2 450 w/ 256mb and I am having problems as well running sc3000. I am getting the launcher screen and when I click on install, the install shield goes to 99% and craps out. If anyone has an idea why, please help. If I have to go back to ME that would really suck.
