Hi I was wondering if i would be able to play the sims 3 on origin on windows 8. I heard that some people cant play it and that some people can. I saw a video on youtube showing how to get it to work and that you have to right click on the launcher and click properties and then compatability and then windows 7 but since i have the sims 3 on origin when i click on the sims 3 launcher it pops up origin insted. I want to get a new computer but i want to find out if i will even be able to play the sims 3 on it. Plz reply mileyhappy:

welcomes and you know where we are if you need more help also some win 8 played have BitDefender on the computers that is known to cause aconflict with the sims 3 so they disable it temporriarly to play the game
edit to add give admin rights to origin and the launcher i also admin rights the game icons too once you give admin rights restart the computer
