Installation of Sim City 4 compatibility with Windows 8

★★★ Newbie

I bought my grandson SimCity 4 so he could install it on his new laptop.  The laptop came with Windows 8 and the SimCity 4 won't install.  What can be done?

I am running it just fine under Windows 8 x64

 

Is this a CD/DVD version of the game, a Steam version, or an Origin version?

 

At the moment I am assuming standalone cd/dvd disc.

 

Have you tried right clicking on the installer.exe file and selecting 'run as administrator'?
