Hello,

I'm not sure I follow your issue.  You say it's a compatibility issue and you say your installation is giving you an error?  

First of all, what exactly does the error say and what game are you trying to install?
The only games provided by G4TW that has .iso files are the base game: The Sims 3.  
Is this exactly what you are trying to install on to your PC?

About the compatibility issue you speak of, there are no known incompatibility errors or issues for Windows 8 users, and I can further back up this claim as I am running all expansions and stuff packs on Windows 8.1 as we speak.  I've never had any errors or issues while playing, nor when I was installing it!

Nevertheless, once you provide us with a little bit more information, we'll be glad to help solve the issue for you and get your game up and running.  Smile

Hello,

My suggestion to you would be post a screenie of the error as soon as you can.  Smile

I can tell you right now, it's definitely not Windows 8 acting up.  You may want to ensure that you've updated your PC properly and everything is up to date (go to Control Panel>System Security>Windows Updates).  If there are any updates available for the PC, install them and follow the instructions you are given (usually you'll be prompted to restart your computer as many times as necessary).  
At this point, please right-click on the .iso file you're trying to run (you need to run the startdisk.iso first) and select 'Mount'.  Once you do this, a window should pop up and from there you can right-click on the Setup.exe and run as administrator.  An installation window SHOULD pop up and begin the process of installation.  If this does not happen or you get the error again (I'm hoping this isn't the case), try running it in 'compatibility mode' and choose Windows 7.

Happy Simming.  The Sims Plumbob 1

I agree with Sephymuffins. I have Windows 8 64bit and I never had any problems installing Sims.
