Sims 1 - Please login with administrator privileges and try again

Post by tessi on Thu 12 May 2016, 11:39

Hi! I tried installing Sims 1 and the installation worked. but when i try to run the game by just clicking on it, it gives the error: 'Please login with administrator privileges and try again'.
When I do so, i have to allow it to make changes to my PC, accept it and then it doesn't work. 

I've tried searching the forum, but haven't found the answer yet. I've a Windows 10 laptop.

I hope you guys can help!

Hello and welcome to the forum,


Right-click on the Sims.exe file (or the desktop shortcut of it) and choose "Properties". Under the compatibility-tab, and under "run this program in compatibility mode for", choose an earlier Windows system. Like Windows XP Service Pack 3. In the same tab, mark the box that says "run this program as Administrator". Click on "apply" at the bottom, then on "OK". Then try the game again. Good luck !
