sims 3 1.55 not launching windows 8

★★★★ Novice


I am trying to play the Sims 3 on my new windows 8 computer. I have the base game and a number of expansions and when I click the desktop icon the launcher loads and when I click the big play button a little hour glass appears next to my pointer for a couple seconds then dissapears, nothing happens after that. I have the latest patch 1.55 and I have tried running it in various compatibility modes by going into the propeties but the same problem keeps occurring. My computer specs are 
Window 8
processor: AMD FX(tm)-8320 Eight-Core Processor 3.50GHz
RAM: 32.0 GB
64-bit operating system, x64-basedprocessor
