WHAT IS THE DEAL !!!!!!!CAW EIG not working on Windows 8. [SOLVED]

Post by Jabberbabywocki on Sun 06 Jul 2014, 06:49

OK.  Help 

There is just way to much out-dated crap about how this game works in conjunction to The downloads featured on this site. It is VERY confusing.
All I want to know is, Does EIG work with latest downloads. I don't have any problems with my sim game or expansions, CAW program works, but the Edit in Game feature does not. Both the build and buy button simply don't respond.
If you know how to fix this please tell me. maybe when can get a clear answer on whether you need the older version of the base game in order to use the EIG feature in CAW or do something else. Facepalm

Hello, 

You shouldn't need to have an older base game version or something along these lines...assuming that your CAW is the latest available version:

Can you try running CAW as Administrator, and maybe even in compatibility mode for an earlier Windows version ?
