You can't. Read the thread. EA might be able to help.

That's not true, my simcity disk worked on Windows 10 - I think I just right clicked it and 'explored' the disk, then clicked on 'setup.exe' and ran it that way. It depends though as this worked on my laptop but not my pc and they're both Windows 10. Another thing you can try is opening the disk in ultra iso or similar program and copy all files on the disk to a folder on your hard drive and then try to run setup.exe from there.

I have the same issue. I just contacted EA via chat, thanks to the poster who posted that link, and provided both of my game codes (I own two versions) and they added it to Origin so I can download, install and play it.


I recommend contacting EA via chat, they were quite helpful and quick. They were able to look up the game codes, see they were registered to me and add them to Origin without incident.

It did not work...should I buy the 2005 version that is compatible with Windows 7, then try your instructions?
