    SimTower On Windows 8


    Hi Guys,
    I have this very old game known as SimTower from the Maxis company and it used to run on my Windows 7 but now that I have gotten a new computer with the Win 8 OS, it wont run anymore. I have tried the compatibility checker but that failed. Please help.

    Sadly, some games that work with Windows 7 may not work with Windows 8. If the computer that had Windows 7 on it was 32-bit then that would explain why it would work on Windows 7 as you can run 16-bit games on a 32-bit OS using the compatibility mode Windows XP Service Pack 3. If your Windows 8 system is 64-bit I'm afraid you will not be able to play it at all unless you went through a complicated process of trying it on DOSbox.
