Can I install the sims 3 on windows 8?

Post by dulceladulce on Sat 29 Dec 2012, 20:29

I'm interested in downloading the sims 3 but I want to make sure it's even compatible first.

Yes, though depending on your hardware you may have issues in game. The game itself should be perfectly fine on Win8.

Hello,

You can check the compatibility with your system's hardware here: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri

(Don't forget to update all your hardware drivers prior to running the scan!)

Everything passed except for...OSMinimum: Windows XP (Service Pack 2) or Windows Vista (Service Pack 1) or Windows 7 . You Have: Microsoft Windows 8 (build 9200), 64-bitOSMinimum: Windows XP (Service Pack 2) or Windows Vista (Service Pack 1) or Windows 7. You think maybe I can run the sims 3 on compatibility mode and set it as windows 7? or I should just forget about it

The game's minimum requirements isn't what I was really referring to. For one such example of what I am referring to, if your graphics card has issues with DirectX11. Since DirectX 9c is incompatible with Windows 8, it would be an issue that wouldn't be resolved easily - and compatibility mode won't fix that.
