These steps for installing City Life work for Windows 7 OS - The bold steps apply to those with Windows 7
64bit and x64 - Windows Vista Compatibility Patch for City Life Available

Continuing to expand support for Microsoft® Windows Vista Operating System, CDV Software Entertainment USA is pleased to announce a new patch for City Life. The new patchallows the city building and management simulation to be played under both the 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista (and Windows 7).

Please note – this patch is only for City Life, a forthcoming patch will offer compatibility for City Life: World Edition

To install the patch on the 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, please follow these steps:

  1. Install City Life
  2. Right click on the City Life shortcut and click on « Run as Administrator »
  3. Launch the game and allow it to install the Starforce drivers, but DO NOT restart the computer when prompted
  4. Launch SFDRVUP.EXE after downloading to update your Starforce drivers
  5. Restart your computer
  6. Launch the game (note that it will come up with an error message)
  7. FOR WINDOWS 7: Right click on the CityLife_PatchVista.exe file, select "Properties".
    Click on "Compatibility" tab.
    Place check mark in box for "Run this program in compatibility mode for:"
    In the drop-down menu underneath, select "Windows Vista". Press "OK"
  8. Install the CityLife_PatchVista.exe
  9. Launch the game.
  10. Game may ask to install additional libraries - Say "Yes". Once the additional libraries are installed, game will run successfully.
I know the last post was 2 years ago, but I thought this would be helpful to those still experiencing problems installing this game on a computer with Windows 7 :)
