Hello,

I am not sure if I get your implication but I would like to mention that virtual images (i.e. iso files) cannot be used as "crack", if you want ONLY the base game (if that's what you mean) installed, I suggest downloading and installing Nrass No-CD mod in the temporary fix: http://games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Fixes/The_Sims_3_fix_temp.rar .

I hope this piece of information is helpful to you.

Yes, you should. I don't think there are any differences between installing The Sims 3 on Windows 7 and Windows 8's pcs.
