Installing Sim City 3k on W7

Found 9th Aug 2010
I am trying to install sim city 3k, and nothing will get the sod to run.

I load the disc fine until you get the blue screen, which just stays blue, no boxes or buttons appear.

I have tried compatibility mode for xp and 98 and still got nothing, loads of people on searches have got it working. Anyone got any ideas?

It's sim city 3000 uk edition I am trying to install

Nope, I click install button, then it says do you want the help? Click No and opens a blue box, with just the words sim city 300, nothing else.

Hence why I want to play it, but if I can't get to work, will need to get rid of it :-(

Sudden urge to play Sim City 2000 now. Don't remember enjoying 3000 or 4 as much.

Might have to give my love of sc3000 a miss.... Anyone recommend a similar game that will work on w7?

VirtualPC and a copy of XP installed onto it, might work.
