I don't want the 3rd, there is a huge difference between the games. I played the trial version of the third and it was the worst thing I have ever played. So many people have suggested I play the third instead it's not even funny. I absolutely love the first game though. The first is one of my favorite games ever.

I got it to work one my PC first time and it is a good game! I also has original disk for it!!
Sims 3 is good! And so is Sims 2 but not when you have the CD set and you have a 64-bit system! And using Windows 8 as well!

Have you tried right clicking the desktop icon and running it as the administrator? Also, right click the icon and select properties and go to the compatibility tab - if it isn't already, change the 'Run this progam' section to Windows XP.
And I agree, the third game is very different to the first two...I'm not a fan of it at all. My brother prefers playing the first game like you, I prefer the second (works out well for us sharing the disks!).

Try installing it to a non-system location; for example C:\ Games. That way you won't have UAC interfering with it.
