Serial Code Invalid?

Just bought an original Sim City 4 Deluxe Edition today and try to install with Serial number at back of the manual, but during validation of serial number, installer says "Code non valide..." . I repeat installation on another PC and same result. Same problem with your "on-line activation process". I can provide you this and prove of purchase if needed.

Thanks so lot for your assistance.

SimCity 4 Deluxe won't install on Windows 7 64 bit

I am having trouble installing SimCity 4 Deluxe on my new Windows 7 64 bit machine. It previously installed and ran fine on my Windows 7 32 bit machine. When disc 1 autoruns, the small SimCity screen opens with "Play", "Readme", etc, it then ask me to insert disc #2. After inserting disc 2, nothing happens.

Sim city 4

I recently bought my girlfriend sim city 4. When installing the game an error comes up saying serial number invalid. The game is brand new and the code should work. Should I simply return the game for exchange or can ea create a new code so I can install the game? I have the receipt and serial as proof of purchase.

Hi,

 

First try visiting this page and activating it here: https://activate.ea.com/activategame.do

  1. Login with your EA account
  2. Enter the code in the box above.
  3. Click Sign In to redeem the code.
  • It may ask you to link or create a new persona. If the code is still coming up invalid, please contact us and we can assist you further.

Note: You may need to go back to options and click on "Refresh My Games" before the game will show up in Origin. If this does not make the game show in your "My Games" section, please log out and log back in to Origin.

 

Should you still have issues afterwards, you can contact an EA Game Advisor: https://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/ask

Re: [SimCity 4] Register retail copy of Sim City 4 with Origin

[ Edited ]

EDIT:  Just saw the more recent posts about 'contacting a Game Advisor".  I will try that next.

 

I did this, however, SimCity 4 is not showing up in Origin at all even after logging out and logging back on.  Any other suggestions before I wipe Origin and try a fresh install?

 

Thanks,

[SimCity 4] Polish language support for Steam

Hi,
in SimCity 4 Deluxe I can see that there is a Polish help, Polish readmes a file called pl_filelist.txt which says there is a Polish locale.
Because there is no option in the steam client to change the language to Polish I assume it's a missing feature.

Could you please add an option for the Polish language in the options and copy the correct files into the game folder?

Sim City 4 Help

[ Edited ]

I have purchased discs for sim city 4 (several years ago and now lost) as well as buying the digital delux version several months ago. I have since transitioned to a macbook pro and now want to play sim city 4 again. However when I went to download the game from origin it won't let me because I'm not on a windows computer. I have a product key for the digital delux so I should be able to play the game still. I just need a way to download the actual game data which is sitting in my origin account, so how do I get it? What can I do?

Thanks for your help

Mike

Sim City 4 Deluxe edition invalid code when trying to install.

Trying to install Sim City 4 Deluxe edition. I have followed the onscreen instructions up to typing in the code from the back of the instruction booklet. All I get is the following message:

You have entered an invalid code. You cannot continue the installation process until you have a valid code.

This is on CD rom.

Can you help please?
