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:cool:


The only way I can Think of right now is to install Win ME back and make a dual boot whit XP.
It's the only way to play my favorite game.

I found nothing to solve the problem.


Hi Ya'll,

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


sc3000 & XP

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
