I had been playing Simcity just fine on 7. I recently upgraded to 8.1 and now can't get the game to launch.
Even if I go right to the simcity launcher in my files, it gives me an error saying Origin isn't installed (when it most certainly is).
Solved! Go to Solution.

Try setting your Origin and SimCiity desktop shortcuts to Windows 7 compatibility mode and to "Run as administrator".
Not sure what launcher you're using (SimCity.exe in the launch directory?). Try running it from the SimCity entry in your Origin client My Games library.

I've tried both simcity.exe and the entry in the library- neither work.
When I try to start it using .exe it tells me origin isn't installed and is needed to play the game, and when I try the one in the library it tells me it's going to start but never pulls up the launcher.
I tried the compatibility mode and admin mode, still get the same results.
