Sims 3 won't work on Windows 8

★★ Newbie

Why won't Sims 3 work on Windows 8 and when is a fix coming out? I'm disapointed that this wasn't handled with the initial launch of Win 8 like Minecraft did.

Re: Sims 3 won't work on Windows 8


It does work for some.


Could you please post here so we can help EA figure out why it does for some and not for others:

Good Luck and Happy Simmin
