SimCity 2000 Installer For Windows 7 - Windows 10

By

Description

Still have your copy of SimCity 2000 For Windows? Wish you could play it on your Windows 7 system but can't get the installer to work? Good News! You can now! I've made this semi-simple program in Visual Basic .Net that will install SC2K for you (as long as you have the files.) Just find the SC2K folder on your CD (Find the SC2K folder in WIN95 on the CD above) or if it's on your computer, any folder with the files in it and install! It does everything from registering it to installing shortcuts!

Update 4/1/2020:
I've pushed a patch that removes the URL from the application. It was one of the reasons heuristic AV programs were flagging it. I think it should be good now, but only time will tell...


Compatible with:
Windows XP
Windows 7
Windows 8
Windows 8.1
Windows 10 (Win10 appears to have full functionality with all SC2K functions, SCURK included)

NOTE TO 4K (AND UP) MONITOR USERS:
Right click on the installer, go to compatibility, click "Change High DPI Settings" and enable "Override High DPI Scaling Behavior"
